Overview

Small Time Criminals is a game for up to six players. It uses live actors, clues and puzzles to simulate a bank heist. The game is played in a two-storey building that used to be a real bank. You'll be figuring out where valuables are hidden, how to access them and which ones might be worth the most. Decide what's most valuable and steal as much as you can. Small Time Criminals is rated M15+ for content. Bookings are essential.
