About this game

You're the world's greatest jewel thief! Well, second greatest. But if you and your team of talented crooks can steal the Black Cat, the world's unluckiest diamond, you'll be legendary!

“Thieves’ Gambit: The Curse of the Black Cat” is an interactive heist caper by Dana Duffield, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

The Black Cat has never been stolen, its previous owners all having died under improbably unfortunate circumstances. Break into the palace of San Castellano, pinch the gem, evade the relentless Inspector Leclerc and get away before you succumb to the Curse of the Black Cat!

Play as male or female; gay, straight, or bi. Choose your methods and your motives. Will you be an honorable thief or a ruthless criminal? A technical genius or a master of disguise? Who can you trust, and who will you double-cross?

I actually purchased this book. Short and to the point heist story. The characters and the plot are all specifically set up to accomplish the heist with a bit of a rivalry thrown in from another criminal and an inspector. The biggest problem in this one was character development, the book just moved really fast. The plot was well done with a nice twist at the end and the story has great imagery. It's a decent story but a bit short.

I've played many a choice of games/hosted games. This one Is good with a satisfying ending however feels a bit too short and leaves a little something to be desired. I finished it in one sitting (bout an hour and a half) and does feel a tad scripted. Worth a buy if your looking for something to quickly check out

I love this game, it's one of my favourites of COG, but after recently playing for probably the twentieth time I kept getting the same exact ending. I would betray Bouchard on one and team up with him on another, but the ending stayed the same. If you do manage to get the game to work well it is fantastic!
