A downloadable game

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

It's a quiet Wednesday afternoon so you decide to pull off a heist. What fun! You and your best pals Ernie and Gil are in the process of running away with riches. There’s a lot of things that can go wrong until you get back safely to your house - and they probably will. (Chances are you'll probably lose most of the loot) 

You and your getaway vehicle must travel the long roads with your riches (or what’s left of them) and avoid being captured by the guards. Along the way, you may stop at weird tourist attractions, bribe the guards, and be affected by the local council's budget cuts. 

You’ll need a six and twelve sided dice as well as a map (provided) to play. There are a guard and player tokens at the back of the zine to cut out and assemble for the map.

Can be played solo or with two players, one plays as the heisters and the other plays as the guards.

Shame I can't get a print copy in the UK, but looking forward to seeing it.

I unfortunately can’t send things to the UK due to confusing tax things, however I’ll put the zine up in my etsy shop once I’ve completed the itch funding orders as etsy thankfully handles all the tax things for me! 


Hi there - I'm in New Zealand, so to get a physical zone do I select ROW or (like Russell Crowe) can I pretend I'm actually an Aussie? 

Shipping to NZ is $9 which is cheaper than shipping to the US so it's in the middle between Aus shipping and the international shipping. So you can select the Aussie tier and add a few extra dollars to cover the shipping?  


Hi Ella 

Me and my friend Charlie in the UK have hopefully put you over the $250 you needed to fund this. looking forward to the new zine.
