|Cadwallon: City of Thieves | Published 29 July 2010||Rating||23 votes|
Welcome to Cadwallon, a city of vagabonds and outlaws of every kind. Your tiny gang has been chosen to relieve the fat merchants of the city from a portion of their “excess” wealth. But there are many factions within the Guild, and yours is not the only band working in the district tonight! In fact, your greatest challenge may not be the militiamen who guard the streets...
Cadwallon: City of Thieves is a fast-paced game of cunning thievery and ruthless skullduggery in a fantasy city steeped in magic and intrigue. Two to four players each control their own gang of four thieves, competing to amass the greatest haul of loot from the many carefully locked chests scattered about the board. This is no friendly competition, however, and there is little loyalty among thieves in Cadwallon...
The most successful players are as likely to claim their loot from the other gangs as they are to do the time-consuming legwork themselves. And always there is the Guild, directing the gangs from the shadows, and offering rich rewards to those who follow its will. But there is little time to waste; even the slow-witted militiamen will eventually raise the alarm... and woe be upon any thief who fails to creep away before the lawmen seal the district!
Cadwallon: City of Thieves brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “land of opportunity” as you lead a colorful gang of underworld bandits scurrying about twisty pathways in the city of Cadwallon on a race to gather the largest hoard of magnificent treasures before the hapless citizens take note of the thievery and raise the alarm! Prepare for copious backstabbing, double-crossing, and frenzied races through the darkest corners of this city where even the militiamen will turn a blind eye for a bribe of a few ducats.

I was totallly not looking forward to this games, but after reading the rules and going to gen con I am psyched! Plus, painted figures that I can buy! Dust Tactics and this game are the reason why I can't wait for Fall to come.
Great looking components, simple straightforward rules, looks like replay value is high, can't wait to put this one on my shelf (don't think it will sit there much though)!
Good, wholesome, backstabbing fun for the whole family!
I'm stunned by the artwork, esp. the character design. Similar to Brom's style, esp. the guy on p2.
When i first saw this I thought - another title that does not impress me. But after reading a lot about it I can say - I'm looking forward to this game. It could be very interesting. So I will give it a try.
So looking forward to this game!
Wow, here it comes! Rules, figures and components are COOL! I keep an eye on this one...
Finally a FFG game I can play with the family.
Thumbs wayyyy up for a fun great theme, simple enough rules not to be bogged down by so that can focus on strategy and enough variety to keep it fresh and fun! Looking forward to this one!
OMG, that means this thing is coming soon! I can't wait. As they say, rogues do it from behind! Thanks FFG!
