So we have only played through this once. And the Thiefs won!!!
The game is a little rough to start out, but we found a video on youtube on the game that gives a quick tutorial on how to play. The game itself is interesting, however, my girlfriend was like "How the F#$% does John McClane's punch kill a Thief?"
The lock mechanics in an interesting twist. You never know what the other team strategy is going to be. I just wish they had an Ellis moment on the board game.
Overall it's a very challenging game from either perspective. I would recommend this to anyone who likes strategy games and is a big fan of Die Hard.
We weren't able to finish our first game due to time constraints, but I certainly enjoyed teaching it and being able to play the omnipotent GM since we had 5 players.
This allowed me to properly assist both sides and teach them the mechanics without the hinderance of having to actually play myself.
Thematically it's incredible.
The lock mechanics are clever as it's hard to know exactly what your teammates will do, then having to strategize off that bit of knowledge the leader provides.
Definitely recommend if you are a fan of Die Hard.
