The electronic cooperative game HEIST has been named a finalist for the 2020 Toy of The Year (TOTY) Awards, The Toy Association's highest achievement and one of its most revered accolades. The groundbreaking group play game is a finalist in the Game of the Year category.
The TOTY nomination adds to the growing list of game awards and accolades since HEIST's North American launch at Gen Con in August, including The Dice Tower's Seal of Approval, ASTRA's Best Toys for Kids Awards Finalist, Mojo Nation Game Designer of the Year, and Game Innovator of the Year finalist for Chicago Toy and Games' Tagie Awards.
HEIST is an electronic cooperative game where players work as a team to crack a safe and collect $50 million
by following a dynamically generated series of commands from a team leader. The central theme of the game is one team, one mission. With five progressive levels of difficulty, HEIST keeps the tension up from the first second to the very last.
The TOTY Awards are often referred to as the "Oscars" of the toy industry, and finalists were announced this week from a field of over 550 nominations. HEIST was selected from hundreds of board games and tabletop games for its unique style of play and wide appeal to kids, families and adults.
"This is the perfect holiday game for every generation. What's more fun than robbing a bank?" said Craig Hendrickson of Megableu USA.
