Halfling Heist

The biggest job in town.
**NOTE: Available with non-standard components for a limited time only. Barrel pieces have been used to replace discontinued bottle components.**

It’s a tough time for Halflings.

There’s not much work around for a feller that can’t pull their weight in orc carcasses. And those few Halflings that do get a bit of work usually end up as the sacrificial fodder of some adventure-worn Ancient Temple of Foreboding Something-or-other.

But a Halfling’s gotta eat, right?

There’s plenty of food to be had at the local pub; problem is, it usually belongs to other people. Luckily for you, the Cockatrice Corral is the most notoriously violent pub in the city. You're guaranteed a brawl at least three times a night, and while everyone else is focused on avoiding the next haymaker, you can focus on pilfering their delicious meals.

It sounds like the perfect heist... for a hungry Halfling.

******

Halfling Heist is a fast-paced board game that pits you against up to three other rival Halfling thieves. Snatch as much food as possible and scram before the City Watch catches you red-handed with someone else’s chicken sandwich.

It’s quick, fun and brutal as you dodge the barroom brawl and try to outgrab and outscore your fellow Halflings. The more hits you take, the more Luck you’ll get - just make sure you get out in time to enjoy your meal!
