Introducing Calliope Games Thieves!
From Dragons to dice rolling Calliope Games creates a thievery in our pocket. No really, Calliope Games Thieves! is practically a pocket sized bluffing game coming to us (in English) first quarter of 2016. In Calliope Games Thieves! you are interested in 1 thing. Loot, fat stashes of loot. As you are building your coin empire, be on the look out for police, raids, and players with the most loot trying to throw you under the bus (or squad car in this example). I’ve been a fan of bluffing games and wasn’t introduced to them until mid summer when I visited a group of friends in Seattle. Coup, love Letter, and Sheriff have become must haves on my shelf and I (while not very good at playing) always find a chance to nudge them into game nights. I find the interaction involved in bluffing games creates this aroma of fun and thrill that gaming nights need (especially after a game of Betrayal).
Each round you draw a card and play one from your hand. You can either play cards in front of yourself, or in front of other players to strategically turn the attention of the feds away from you. Police are looking to bust the player with the most coin, however, you want to have the most coin by the end of the game. Police cards and Thief cards are available for the flavor of twists and turns to launch yourself toward the win. After 7 getaway cards (which MUST be played when you draw them) are drawn, game ends, and the player with the most loot wins.
