Get Together. Get the Loot. Get Out.

Burgle Brothers is a cooperative heist game that is clearly inspired by the wonderful cinematic tradition of films like Ocean’s 11, The Italian Job, Topkapi, The Great Train Robbery and modern films like the newer Oceans movies Inception, and one of my new favorites, Tower Heist. You have a crew of specialists ready to help you infiltrate a bank or an office or even Fort Knox. The goal? Find the safe on each floor of the building, crack it, grab the loot and escape to the roof where a helicopter awaits to whisk you away to safety.

This game emphasizes teamwork and builds in many fun heist movie moments filled with suspense... when your careful plan hangs in the balance and moments of panic... when everything falls apart and you have to come up with a new plan on the fly.

Tune in to find out why Burgle Bros deserves the Spiel of Approval!
