You are a thief, always on the lookout for the next target to hit. You decide to sneak into the Royal Palace, break in its treasure room, and look for the mythical treasures rumored to be hidden there. Among piles of gold, emeralds, and precious jewelry, you stumble upon a chest containing a mysterious hourglass. As soon as you touch it, you are filled with mystical energy and realize its true power: You are now able to see glimpses of your own future. By taking different courses of action, different paths unfold before you, allowing you to shape your future as you see fit. Unfortunately, everyone in the palace is now after you...

A Thief's Fortune is a card game for 1-4 players in which each player represents a different possible future of the same character. By visiting different locations, interacting with local characters and making sure that certain events you have seen actually happen, you try to find the path that will lead you as far away as possible from danger.

In more detail, players each have three areas in front of them: past, present, and future. Over five rounds, players draft location, event, and character cards, adding them to their personal "future" area with resources on those cards. Players extract resources from those cards, and when they're empty, the cards move into the player's present, after which the player can activate the power on those cards to score the fortune points they need to win the game.

  • This game was played and recommanded by Vin d'Jeu, here its opinion:


    J’ai été super emballé par ce jeu, dont j’attends impatiemment la sortie en VF prévue courant 2019 pour y jouer avec mes amis « not english speaking/reading »

    J’aime beaucoup le thème qui me rappelle le fameux jeu vidéo de plateforme que je jouais plus jeune (oui, je suis vieux). Et finalement, j’ai été captivé par une mécanique de combinaisons gestion-cartes avec un système de glissement très intéressant. Ce système de glissement rend les cartes moins éphémères contrairement à beaucoup d’autres jeux de cartes, où l’on pose, on applique l’effet, puis c’est fini.

    Personnellement, j’ai trouvé que les choix ne sont pas toujours évidents si on tient compte de tous les aspects du jeu. Faut-il garder cette carte durant le draft ? Faut-il la prendre pour sa ressource ? Faut-il la prendre pour son effet ? Faut-il la prendre pour ses points de fin de partie ? Aurais-je le temps de l’éjecter vers le passé ? Est-ce que la ressource m’intéresse ? etc…

    Les règles ne sont pas très compliquées et la prise en main se fait rapidement. Je le placerais en niveau de difficulté situé à la limite entre intermédiaire et expert. Thief’s Fortune est une belle découverte pour moi.

    J'ai backé ce jeu sur kickstarter et de le voir disponible ici alors que je ne l'ai toujours pas reçu me fais mal au coeur. J'aimerais savoir si en plus il est accompagné des stretch goals de la campagne kickstarter.
