Spyfall: an English game of asking questions and social deduction!
In this episode of “Board Gaming with English” Dustin and Rich talk about the tabletop game called “Spyfall.” This game is another social deduction game that you can use to learn and improve your English. This is a great English game for asking questions. If you are the spy you need to find out where everyone else is. If you are not the spy, you need to find the spy by asking the other players questions to find their location.
