Welcome to The Great Heist

The Great Heist is an online role-playing game and community where the players strive for infamy and fortune in a world of crime and high-stakes heists.

You start the game as a simple thief with empty pockets. Join a crew of smooth criminals or work alone, the choice is yours. Play your cards right and you'll soon be traveling the world leaving a trail of empty bank vaults behind you. The long arm of the law will constantly try to foil your ingenious schemes so try to stick to the shadows or you'll end up in the slammer!

The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged in. Success in the game is determined by careful strategy and good timing, not by constant online presence. It's perfectly possible to be successful in the game by logging in a couple of times a week to check up on things.

The Great Heist is free of charge and no downloads are necessary to play it. If you can read this you're good to go.

OK. So perhaps this phrase isn't quite as tantalizing as the one coined by British magazine the Spectator in 1971. But at least it's a suitable title for the special item packages for sale this month! And since we've promised to abstain from sex until we've released the next quest, this was the best we could do.

Stay safe everyone!

Santa wishes to welcome you to the official and somewhat cryptic Winter Games of 124. If you want to join this little challenge he's left a sleigh for you at Tromsø Lufthavn. A chart with the Winter Games results is available if you want to compare your results with the rest.

Please keep in mind that scoring well on this event is NOT based on how quickly you can click the compass. So there's no need to stress through the event.

Good luck everyone!
