Calliope Games announces the upcoming release of Thieves!
Cops and robbers-themed game to be previewed at Gen Con
Redmond, WA-July 27, 2015. Today, Calliope Games announced an upcoming card game with a cops and robbers theme: Thieves! Originally published by 999 Games in Europe, Calliope will release an English version to the US market in late 2015/early 2016.
In Thieves, players take on the role of bandits pulling off the heist of a lifetime. The safes have been cracked, the bags have been loaded, and the getaway car is ready. All is going smoothly… until someone trips the alarm. Eager to put an end to the players’ crooked ways, the cops give chase, throwing up roadblocks and seizing everything from the wealthiest thief each time a police raid is triggered. Players must gather loot without making themselves a target. The thief who flees the city with the lion’s share of the loot wins!
“We’re very excited to add Thieves! to our catalog.” says Ray Wehrs, President of Calliope Games. “It fits in perfectly with our other casual, family-friendly titles, and if folks enjoy it half as much as I do, Thieves! will be a welcome addition to many a gamer’s shelf.”
Calliope Games will be demoing Thieves! in booth 149 at Gen Con 2015.
