Brief Play Description: 

Eash player can move his character around the room using a different set of keys, allowing them to share the same keyboard.
The pickpocket acquires points by picking businessmen who are wandering around aimlessly (don't rob the same guy twice, he won't have any money), and stashing the loot in one of the potted plants at the edge of the room.
The policeman must intercept the thief with the money on his person 3 times for the thief to go to jail. However, every wrongful arrest demotes the policeman, and too many wrong arrests without enough successful busts (which entail a promotion) will have him kicked of the force. Since there is no visual indication of the actual picking, the player controlling Sgt. Bailings must figure out the opponent's strategy in order to make smart career movea.
