About the Game

Allow us to introduce ourselves…

Welcome to Specialists, Inc., the premiere security stress-test firm in the world. When a client asks us to find out just how good their security is, we demonstrate in the best possible way… By breaking in and stealing as much as we can lay hands on! Our team of highly skilled professionals will infiltrate the building and make off with plenty of loot, and while they’re at it, they’ll steal the most valuable item in the place just to make a point. So go ahead… Hire us. I’d say keep a close eye on your stuff, but why bother? It won’t do you any good.

The Specialists is a cooperative board game that recreates the feeling of pulling off a classic movie heist. Players work together against an environment that includes ever-vigilant Guards, a variety of tricky security devices, and plenty of unpredictable events that could turn a carefully-constructed plan into a mad dash for the exit. To navigate this setting, the players choose from four different types of Specialists: the slow, methodical Safecracker; the brash, smash-and-grab Muscle; the cunning and tactical Hacker; and the flashy trickster Acrobat. Play is performed using six-sided dice, a highly variable layout, and a lot of attention to detail. You’ll need good partners, solid skills, and a foolproof plan, but before any of that, you’ll have to answer one question:

Do you have what it takes to be a Specialist?
