After I saw the listing for The Perfect Heist it occurred to me that the heist film is a strangely under-used genre for board games. Oh, I’m sure there are a few out there, but it’s not like they are falling out of the woodwork like, say, fantasy adventure games. In any case, Karl Tiedemann is trying to fill that whole with The Perfect Heist a cooperative competitive card game where each player tries to convince the other players to go on various heists with them, all the while each player tries to come out ahead.
The Perfect Heist, from what is shown on the Kickstarter page, has some very nice artwork to accompany it and is a game where players try to amass Notoriety. Players build an ability deck as they play The Perfect Heist , which add to your abilities or give you boosts that make you more effective on a heist. While you can go heists alone, you can also recruit other players to join you by negotiating away part of the loot or Notoriety of the job (which you may not be able to do by yourself), or sabotage the chances of your competitors to complete the heists that they go on. The Perfect Heist certainly sounds like a game that will be more fun when you get a larger group of people together, and can accommodate from three to six. The Perfect Heist will include 240 cards and the game ends (and Notoriety is tallied) when a player advances to the end of the game board. It really sounds like a cool game, with a nice theme, and some fun, social gameplay.
