“Wall generator”

To help with setup use http://gabob.com/burgle/
It randomly generates walls for each floor and can identify rooms with more or less traffic

“Safe alarms”

After each safe is cracked you are supposed to add 1 guard movement to each lower floor. One possible variant to make the game harder is to have the safe alarm make the guard move faster on the higher floors, or on all floors.

“Check out Tim’s Loot page on his website”

In the last reprinting for Burgle Bros., there was a mistake with printing the wrong file resulting in fewer tokens included in the game than in the original box.

Mainly, the number of Stealth, Hack, and Cracked tokens went down, but more critically, the 2 Thermal Bomb tokens were missing.

So, Tim had an extra set of tokens printed, including the 2 Thermal Bomb tokens, but now also some other tokens — not included in the original box — that would be useful.

The set of tokens also includes a bonus event card.

The set is free, too. [Edit: No longer free, but US$1]

So check it out. And while you’re at it, check out the extra 5 Promo Event Pack, 5 more event cards to add to the deck and increase the challenge to your heisters.

[EDIT: Tim’s page is gone, but the tokens are available at BGG] https://boardgamegeekstore.com/products/burgle-bros-replacement-chit-set-alter-ego

“Guard Deck”

Constant checking of the guard discard deck REALLY slows things down. We play that you can not look at the guard discard deck to make things move faster, but also it seems to make thematic sense to us.
