The Greatest of Art Thieves

A master art thief requires two things: timing and taste. Secure the finest artwork before your rival can to cement your status as a world-class art thief.

In The Greatest of Art Thieves, two rivals square off in a bid to secure the most valuable pair of stolen artworks. Each turn, the active player chooses one of the two pieces of artwork in their hand to drop, placing it into either the face-up Exhibition or the face-down Private Collection. Then they burgle the top card of the area they didn't choose, replacing the card they dropped. The heist ends when the Private Collection has been fully pilfered or when one thief pulls the alarm using one of a few specific cards in their hand. Each player then tallies their score based on the value in their hand, scoring extra points for nabbing a pair from the same artist. Play another round until one player reaches 21 and proves themselves to be the superior thief.
