boardgame provides instructions for 3 levels of game play:
- where 2 to 5 players compete for the most silver. The first player to
get 300 silver pieces in his cache wins the game. Its an all-out steal-a-thon
in 26 locations, as you try to avoid the 5 Hellhounds, who's movement
are also controlled by the players. It tends to become a competition to
see how many times you can get your oppentents thrown in the Dungeon.
- a single player game where you're supposed to be Prince Kadakithis,
controlling the Hellhounds, to stop the 'rampant' crime in Sanctuary.
After catching all 5 thieves, you get to total up the amount of silver
pieces stolen before and judge you crime-fighting ability against the
theft table. Has there been a Triumph for Law and Order, or is Crime Rampant
in your city.
- again for 2 to 5 players, these rules give the players the additional
options of hiring thugs, using magical amulets, bribing Dungeon guards
and (the most fun of all) mugging your opponents! Depending on what type
of thief you play - Burglar, Mugger or Pickpocket - there are specific
encounter tables for different city location. Hey, now's you chance to
mug Tempus in Downwind!
one thing I really like about this game is the giant jigsaw map. Always
wanted to know where Stulwig's Apothecary' is - Mic]
