Game Information

Year Published
Fantasy Flight Games

Get rich or die trying.

It's more than a motto for the thieves of Cadwallon: it's their way of life. You have joined the ranks of the infamous Guild of Thieves, seeking your own path to wealth and glory. Your tiny gang has been chosen to relieve the fat merchants of the city from a portion of their, ahem, "excess" wealth. But there are many factions within the Guild, and yours is not the only band working in the district tonight! In fact, your greatest challenge may not be the militiamen who guard the streets... 

Cadwallon: City of Thieves is a fast-paced game of cunning thievery and ruthless skullduggery in a fantasy city steeped in magic and intrigue. Four gangs of thieves compete to amass the greatest haul of loot from the sleeping city. But this is no friendly competition: there is little loyalty among thieves in Cadwallon! The most successful thieves are as likely to claim their loot from other gangs as they are to do the legwork themselves. And always there is the Guild, offering rich rewards to those who follow its will. Six different adventures await the bold, each offering unique challenges and opportunities for any would-be master thief!

Clever design which seems very random and, to be fair, is very random, but which offsets this by offering the players a surprisingly high number of paths to victory and I'm fairly sure that making good choices will trump the dice the majority of the time. And for those times when it doesn't, the game is short enough to be enjoyed for the excitement alone, and for its stunning visual presentation which really is top-notch stuff. Plenty of re-playability with a number of scenarios on offer which do make full use of the rules framework to create different and challenging play experiences.
