Tip for your first game

Post by Gilthian »

Choose easy level, and choose the office job. That gives you 6 stealth tokens and only 2 floors. We jumped in at the defaults with normal level and the bank job and we failed miserably.

I've reviewed both your normal difficulty bank job and office job and your team made a lot of mistakes.

- Playing with 4 people who I assume hadn't played before then isn't great, even 4 experienced players is tough.
- You opened the safe way too early in both games which resulted in the guard moving an extra space per turn, couple that with 4 players and that's 12 tiles before you get back to your turn again.
- On the office game the raven wasn't being used correctly which resulted in the guard moving more than it should.
- Hiding in the foyer when a guard is likely to pass next to it is a recipe for disaster, worse still more people came up to the second floor only making the situation worse.
- At the first bank job game the rook sat in the worst possible place. If it was another player there then the rook could have used it's ability to help.
