The Bank Job – Don’t Be A Rat! Kickstarter Spotlight


The Bank Job
Publisher: Brains & Brawn Gaming
Designer: Keith Wilcoxon
Number of Players: 2-6
Ages: 12+
Time: 30-60 Minutes

You are part of one of the world’s leading heist crews. After months of planning, careful team selection, and meticulous execution, you and your team have finally pulled off the most successful bank heist of our time. Now the hard part begins!

A unique twist on social deduction games, The Bank Job offers playability for 2-6 players and combines elements of worker placement, hand management, and the prisoner’s dilemma, immersing you in the role of a (possibly double-crossing) thief. Each player is assigned a crew card (with variable abilities), a role, and their own take of the loot.

Throughout the week, you’ll spy, swap, and sneak your way around the other players to swindle the most loot for yourself. But watch out for that snake or rat (if there is one)! They’re out to con the whole crew and fulfill their own dastardly plans!

Kanban EV Review

Kanban EVWhile my tastes vary widely, generally I prefer medium-to-heavy strategy games and I consider Kanban to be the standard-bearer that I measure all others against. Designed by Vital Lacerda in 2014, Kanban is a worker placement game where players have started a job managing an automotive assembly line and must try to complete their work […]

Meeple Land Review

Yet I’ve really struggled to find a theme park board game […]
