Can You Survive Fiction's Most
Notorious Cutthroats!

Based on the Thieves World anthologies, players enter the dark and dangerous world of Sanctuary. Travel the streets of the meanest, seediest city in all of fantasy in search of thieves loot and robbers riches. For 2 to 6 players ages 12 and up.

CRITICS SAY: "Neatly balanced game of greed and spite."
Games Magazine, Nov. 1983

Sanctuary, "the meanest, seediest city in all of fantasy" is waiting for you! Based on the Thieves' World series of Robert Lynn Asprin and Lynn Abbey, Sanctuary challenges you to match your wits against the hard-core, streetwise criminals who stalk its dark alleys. Follow the trail of clues that leads to riches. To survive in Sanctuary you must be cunning, alert, and clever... just don't count your silver too soon; in Sanctuary there's always someone waiting to snatch it away. Sanctuary is an exciting game for 2 to 6 players ages 12 to adult.

The most important character of the Thieves' World stories is the city of Sanctuary itself! The town's dark squalor and desperation are tempered by a curious pride which can laugh at the Empire, the gods, and even itself. Its casual viciousness strikes a chord in our innermost being and has seduced author and reader alike into a love-hate relationship.
Once you've visited Sanctuary, you'll never forget it.

The Event Cards
After a few games, the Event cards got a bit tedious (and bloody annoying), so I came up with a few humorous cards of my own to add to the pile.
