Chicken Heist, by Fourtato Games, is fun travel size card game where you and your friends act out a bank robbery. We played with both younger crowds, teenagers, and older crowds above 40+ years old and everyone had a blast. The younger crowds were a bit more cutthroat in the way they played while the older crowd were a bit more strategic. The game is fast-paced and lightweight. Chicken Heist is a great transition game for anyone wanting to move away from the standard “Party Games” and towards more strategic gameplay. It blends fun art that matches the theme of the game perfectly.
Clear rules. Fun silly, yet perfect art for the theme. Fast-paced and lightweight making it a good travel game.
There was one card in particular that the text was hard to read due to the color of the background and text being very similar. We would have liked to see some more variations to the “loot” types, as there was only three, but that did not take away from the game.
A fun, fast-paced card game perfect for transitioning friends away from the standard “Party Game.”
