An Undercover player just emailed me for advice on what skills to be practicing. Here at BIRD, we're already impressed - preparation is key to a successful mission. So if you're playing Undercover, here's what to think about:
The key skill is remaining undetected. You might want to think about how you'd change your appearance quickly (on the assumption that someone who has a photo taken ten minutes ago is looking for you), or how you'd linger in an area without appearing to be loitering. Also look for clever hiding places for small dead-drop envelopes and think about how you could place or retrieve things without being spotted. Finally, if you had just a photo of someone and had to find them and follow them, how would you do it?
