Among Thieves is a fast-paced card game of thievery, cunning and dishonourable deeds, designed for 3-5 players and appropriate for practically all ages. It is along the lines of such games as Love Letter and Coup.
You take the role of a thief, trying to outsmart the others and amass a greater fortune to prove your superiority. Everyone has the same set of action cards and each turn selects two, placing them face-down in front of himself or herself. Then, starting with the Acting Master Thief (first player), all players take turns in revealing their cards and completing their effect. At the end of the round, one of the two actions played is secretly discarded and play continues until there is a clear winner.
Playtime is 15-35 minutes.
In the box you will find:
A detailed rulebook;
Five sets of 5 Action cards;
Ten Heist Location cards;
31 coin tokens;
One Acting Master Thief marker;
The rules are pretty simple: each turn you choose two of your available action cards, place them face-down in front of you and then take turns resolving them one at a time. You win if you manage to have 7+ coins and you're the richest player at the end of the round.
