James Bond Secret Agent 007 board game
The James Bond Secret Agent 007 board game is a vintage 1960s game based on the fictional British secret agent James Bond.
The game was the first board game to be based on the character of James Bond, and was released in 1964 to coincide with the release of the third film in the series ‘Goldfinger’.
The huge success of the franchise meant that during the following two years six different James Bond-themed board games were released onto the market by companies such as Milton Bradley, Ideal and Tri-Ang.

The game’s board features a number of locations such as a mountain cabin, a casino, a deserted mine, a cemetery, a warehouse and a back alley. Players must move around the board and complete spying missions at locations given to them on cards. Points are scored according to a clock on the board, with multiple points awarded to two or more agents rendezvousing at the same location. The winner is the first agent to amass 100 points.
Each player controls three plastic coloured agents, and the game comes complete with a deck of orange mission cards.
How much is a James Bond Secret Agent 007 board game worth?
The game is sought after by collectors today, although the value of copies depends heavily on their condition. The game itself does not feature a large number of playing pieces, so box and board condition are also important to the price.
On internet auction sites such as eBay, copies have sold for prices ranging from $5 up to $100 depending on condition.
