An Open Source Intelligence Agency operated by the Academy of the Impossible

Spygames is an agency that focuses on providing insight and analysis to its members and subscribers via publications and events.

The spygames newsletter covers national security and foreign policy, with a specific focus on the impacts of media and technology upon geopolitics.

There is currently no fee for subscribing, however there is a social contract: In order to maintain your subscription, you must be an active reader. This means providing feedback, while also promoting the work and analysis of Spygames by sharing the links and issues with your colleagues and friends. The terms of this social contract most likely will change and will be displayed on this page.

The newsletter will be published randomly and experiment with different form and content.

To sign up please apply using the form below. We may or may not contact you to indicate your successful registration.

As an open source intelligence agency, Spygames operates on two central principles: the world is not as we perceive it, and we're all in it together.

The primary purpose of our newsletter is to share links, analysis, and resources that help us collaboratively understand how our world is changing. The secondary purpose is to explore how the concepts of foreign policy and national security are changing, and the role they continue to play in governance and statecraft.
