Greatest Thief

Steal the artifact in secret with this strategic 2-player game!

Greetings, Master Thief.

You have a priceless artifact that you “acquired” early in your career. The artifact is part of a set, and until recently you had no information regarding the location of the other piece. One of your contacts has just informed you that the other piece is in the hands of a rival “alleged” thief in the area. Your contact also told you this other thief is going to attempt to complete his own set by acquiring your artifact.

Train your skills to break in and steal your rival's artifact!

Take advantage of heist opportunities to make money and earn bonuses!

Install your own security systems to protect your artifact!

And never let them know what you are up to...

Shift your thinking on board games. Instead of sitting together--playing together--you will make all of your actions while your rival is not around. You will not finish in one sitting. Instead, enjoy scheming over an entire day or a week with this game full of strategy and anticipation. Use deduction to try and figure out what your rival did while you were away.


  • 6 types of security systems to halt your opponent
  • 19 unique security systems to strategically install
  • 44 unique heist opportunities to 'earn' money or gain bonuses
  • Two versions of the map to use in guarding your artifact
  • Multiple locations to hide your artifact

Note: The wooden box shown in the action shots is NOT included from TGC. It is home-made as an example of how storage might be upgraded.

This game was entered into the Phase Shift Dimension challenge. It has since been updated with new components to make the gameplay much more streamlined. Some elements of the game have also been revamped to make a much more enjoyable game experience.
