What we are:
Aces & Operatives (also known as Aces & Ops) is an immersive and transformative 007-inspired espionage role-play experience that employs original and customized social-engineering to create an alternate realm of spy intrigue for guests.
By creating unique and realistic environments you will self-navigate to uncover information, locate new allies, forge powerful deals, and make daring decisions. Our events remove you from the everyday world and place you into ours.
"Aces and Operatives offers a fully immersive James Bond experience: the activities, stories, costumes, and most importantly atmosphere are all top notch. The collection of characters offers the opportunity to create true 007 tales. I can’t wait for them to come back!" - Ryan
By taking on the role of an original character you assume a new identity. This allows you to lead a double life at our events as a powerful and influential international person of interest.
"The night was easily the best I've had with total strangers; everyone was nice, the atmosphere was mysterious, and everyone knew how to play their parts, so there really was no break in the gameplay. It felt like I was in a scene ripped out of a Bond film, and I can't wait to be a part of another event soon." - Leo
Finally, we Socially-Engineer:
We provide unique motivations that compel you to seek out and speak to others (and for other mysterious patrons to speak to you). On typical night, when you go out with friends you will possibly talk to a few strangers, but will mostly communicate within your own group. Not with us. Above all else we pride ourselves on creating environments where everyone is feverishly engaged with each other.
"I always look forward to Aces & Operatives' events as soon as they're announced because I know that each event is the most entertaining, engaging, playful, upscale, and truly fantastic experience that's happening in NYC that night. Nobody that I've invited to an event has said anything other than praises for the organizers, players, and venues." - David
We produce two unique events:
Danger Lair is an immersive and transformative spy v.s. spy performance that shatters the line between voyeur and performer. It features various themes, live acts, and is designed for creative nightlife enthusiasts. The interaction, pageantry, and players create a new breed of interactive-performance that can be described as "social theatre".
Aston is our upcoming 007 secret-spy-society role-play club that allows attendees to delve into an alternative realm of international intrigue in a very realistic and open setting. Consider it a "red rope role play" for high roller characters. More details coming soon!
Please contact the Game Masters to join our mailing list to be notified of scheduled events before they are publicized. Experience in acting, role-play, or cards is absolutely not required (beginners welcome). Our events are designed so everyone can participate in the adventure.
