Description Edit | History

New York, 1935 – You are a cunning top criminal with a plan that just can't fail. You need only a number of thieves and other scum to put these plans into practice. Fortunately, the city is packed with unemployed rogues who linger in bars, at pool halls and by the race course waiting for a chance to make easy money. Gather the best thieves and rob various locations in the city so as to go home with the most money at the end of the day.

In Crooks you assume the role of a mafia boss and want to use your thieves tactically to increase your earnings or to thwart others. To do this you must:

  • Look for the best thieves: Visit hangous in the city and choose from the thieves available, taking into account that whomever you don't choose will work for your opponents!
  • Balance tactics and bluffing: The choice is yours ... thwarting others or immediately carrying out your own plans?
  • Use your cards wisely: Some thieves can also perform special actions, which increase your chances of winning.

Crooks is a game for bosses with simple rules and a short timespan.

2 Crooks Player Aid - Card Distribution Chart
This player aid lists all of the Crook cards, including their rank value, special ability, target modifier, and gang affiliation. There are 4 reference cards (one for each player) on the sheet, and they're sized properly to fit in the game tin, even when printed at full size. They also conveniently large enough for each player to set on top of his money stack when playing with a hidden money rule.
