Thief Town Review


Posted: 20 months ago, last updated 2 weeks ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


Thief Town is a 2-4 player game where you play in a crowd of identical characters. You must first work out which one you are and then spot the other human players to attack them. Get it wrong and all you do is reveal yourself.

The game offers other modes like ‘Spy Town’, where you can trick and trap other players, and the 1-vs-3 ‘Drunk Town’, where you have limited use of your pistol sights to spot the players.
