You can build something like this:
Where it's impossible to kill the wife or kids with $2000 worth of tools (so long as I haven't made any mistakes in that castledraft). With the vault it is always in some way possible, and usually you can find a weakness to exploit. To make it completely impossible to get to your wife and thus defend half of your money from starter tools, this isn't much of a price to pay.

It will be expensive though, you can't easily completely defend your wife, build good defences for your vault, and then still expect to have over $500 left to bait in robbers without ever stepping a foot outside your own house yourself. Part of the game is about when "things are bad" and you have to make some compromises.

you just forgot the free path to the exit smile

The drugs are not that strong. So when you step on a sleeping pitbull he will wake up immediately and kill you. If you want to step on his square you have to club the pitbull or shoot him with a gun.

Making it on top of the house list. Buying expensive tools to scout the upper neighbourhood. Stepping on a sleeping dog on the way home and loosing everything. Haha i love this game! smile
Need more paranoia hehe.

Im really curious how this will play out with a bigger player base.

I noticed my own behaviour with suicide runs just out of couriosity to check out all the other houses. Usually after i lost one of my own desings. Scouting without tools and going home to suicide so as not to get chills is not such a big deal imho, as you get trapped in the other mazes most of the time. Ill try to sum up my own motivations for starting over and over ( and in that case not caring for the life or the family ) and going trough all the houses in the list:

a) check out other house designs and trap ideas for inspiration

b) get lucky and make it to the safe in one try

c) find a starters house to quickly get the additional 2000$

I assume that most people do this, just the get some more cash to start with and build a more elaborate maze. At least i do smile And as soon as you do that, you start caring and behave according to the intended "This is my life, and it's valuable, better be careful with it. "

I really like that the time you spend being careful in other houses scales according to the time you invest in your own house.

2 workarounds to the suicide runs could be to either force the players to build their own house, before they can go into other homes ( maybe spend half the cash or all )

or let them randomly pick 5 houses to scout ( so as to get inspiration for new players, or money/ tools ) before they can actually build in their own home. That could be the tutorial, that is no tutorial smile
