The Board Game

The Components

  • 1 playing board (in large jigsaw format)

  • 54 plastic chips

  • 54 stickers

  • 48 silver denominations

  • 4 thugs

  • 2 amulets

  • 112 cards

  • 2 six-sided dice

  • 1 ten-sided die

  • rules book

  • rumor charts book

The boardgame provides instructions for 3 levels of game play:

Basic - 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.

Solitaire - 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.

Advanced - 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!

[The one thing I really like about this game is the giant jigsaw map. Always wanted to know where Stulwig's Apothecary' is - Mic]
