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.

The Melvin Economical $ystem is here!

From this day forward, there will be only one currency available in game: M$. We've made this change mainly to make it easier for you to communicate monetary values with people used to other currencies than you.

If you're thinking you've been robbed over night: don't worry! You still have the same amount of money available. We're just displaying the same value converted to the new currency. If you're coming from a EUR or USD currency, you won't notice anything new except the currency code. If not, it's perfectly normal to see 1/10th of what you had Yesterday, or 10 times as much.

We've added a currency converter if you need help converting your old currency to the new one.

Report any bugs you find along the way. However, please note that we have not taken away or given you any money. The amount stored in the database is exactly the same as it was Yesterday. You're just seeing it in a different currency. Spread the word to your friends!

That was fun. Let's do it again!
