  • ⭐️ 7/10
  • 🌡 Medium
  • ⏳ 80 Minutes
  • 👥 2 – 10 Person

We break into the mansion of James Fawkes, who is a collector of rare artifacts. Our goal is to obtain financial information and transfer money from his account to ours. We are prevented from doing so by a series of elaborately constructed security mechanisms and tricky tasks for the puzzle enthusiast.

THE HEIST is a mixture of Gen 1 and Gen 2. It has only a few padlocks. Most things are triggered by props. The playing area is relatively large. There is an inventory and 360° views of the rooms. The 80 minutes game has a good flow, a large number of varied puzzles and is a good value for money. Bri, our Avatar, has done her job well.
