In Bank Job player characters are career criminals that engage in various types of criminal pursuits, primarily robbery and burglary by stealth. The game uses Skills and dice pools for action resolution. The game utilizes a pool of tokens (e.g., poker chips, etc.) that are gained or loss during play. These tokens represent the ill-gotten gains of the characters, though the actual value of each token is unknown to the players until the end of the adventure.
The game document is three pages long, though the third page is a character record sheet.
