What’s your score?
Heist is set in the modern world. You collectively create the setting for your game world, however, which starts with picking a city to play in, tweak its background a little, add major players as well as places of interest. Your crew will be connected and invested in this setting, and have an impact on the stage you designed together.
The game comes with a rules framework designed to help you tell a story and develop your characters. Heist provides as much room for interpretation as possible to avoid the rules getting in the way of telling an exciting story, so you can bend and interpret them to suit your group’s individual tastes. From conflicts to vehicle chases, Heist promises thrilling capers and deadly action!
Task and conflict resolution is built on a simple system using two ten-sided dice, where you try to hit a target number or less on each die. Success and failure are rated by how far off you are from the target number, accompanied by beneficial or hindering side-effects. So you might just make it … at a cost
