Robbery Mechanics

From Wiki Panic Room

Robbery is a permanent feature of this game now. Here are the mechanics that will help you understand how to play it. You can find armored safe among other objects in the rooms of the house.

Important: safes are special item and their fall rate does not improve by using decors or amulets. However, if you have a lot of decor / amulets for other items (rare and frequent), there is a chance that fall rate of special item reduce automatically because the total quantity of falling objects is limited.


Once you have found it, it automatically appears in the room as a decoration and increase amount of copper tokens received.

The safe will stay in your room for 16 hours (placing the cursor on it will show you the remaining time). If it was cracked by one of your friends, the traces will also remain for 16 hours, but note that the countdown begins when you have found the safe, not when opened it. When the time expires, the safe will disappear without a trace.

Opening Safes:


To open the safe you need ‘set of lockpicks’. Once the safe is in your room, you will find lockpicks in all rooms of the house. With the help of lockpicks you can also open safes in your neighbors’ rooms.

-to open safe in your room: 8 sets of lockpicks required

And in last 3 hours of your safe you can use just 2 lockpicks to open it


-to open safe in your neighbor room: 3 sets of lockpicks required


Important: If a player has 10 lockpicks, he cannot find any new lockpicks, untill he used them.

When you click on your own or your friend’s safe a circle will appear as shown in the above picture. It will show if you have desired number of lock picks. Click on the lock picks (green circle) to open the safe. The other circle shows master key (purchase it in store ‘activators’ tab). One master key can open any safe. When the safe opens its contents become visible as in the next picture above.


Collecting Evidence:

If your friend has opened your safe then instead of safe you will see footprints of the thief there. hovering mouse over the footprints will let you know the name of person who cracked it. if you click on footprints, you will collect “Evidence”. Once you collect evidence, footprints will disappear. Collecting evidences gives you special bonuses explained below.

Points to Remember:


If you are robbed then for 3 hours you have double chance of finding safe in the rooms of the house.

After you collect all items of same type i.e. 30 safes or 15 evidences or 15 thief sacks, your counter will be reset and then you can start collecting bonuses again. You can rob same neighbor once in two hours..

Once you win it, Themis will activate itself whereas ‘Detective Hat’ and ‘Avenger’s Mask’ will appear automatically in ‘Decorations’ tab, you do not need to combine thief sacks and evidences to get them. Remember themis is an achievement not a decor, it will appear among other bonuses and amulets in the top left side of your game screen. Themis bonus remain active for 7 days. its time does not stack up. if you already have one and won another themis it will start your time from day one again. the leftover time of the previous themis will be lost.
