Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure board game
Burgle your way to adventure in Clank!, the new deck-building board game.

Sneak into an angry dragon's mountain lair to steal precious artifacts. Delve deeper to find more valuable loot. Acquire cards for your deck and watch your thievish abilities grow.

Be quick and be quiet. One false-step and --CLANK! Each careless sound draws the attention of the dragon, and each artifact stolen increases its rage. You can only enjoy your plunder if you make it out of the depths alive!

  • Very fun game. I dig the deck building mechanic; especially the flexibility in timing of using the built up skills/moves/swords/etc. that turn. I also really like the tension involved when someone is sitting on an artifact space but hasn't declared whether they are picking it up yet or not. Good stuff.
  • Played several times now with the kids (9, 6), and everyone always has a blast! 6 yo needs occasional strategic guidance, but she's getting better at it.Now that I'm used to the setup and rules, we can get through an entire game including setup and tear-down in about 1.25 hrs.
  • A much funner Diamant :-)
  • Finally got to play this game. I am a long time Dominion player, and it has been fun playing this game. I like the aspect of building a deck while playing on the board and having to think about what other players are going to do, and how deep you should go.

Apparently I am on a deck/bag building kick. Been looking at the #Dale of Merchants line, the Clank options (probably OG #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure), #Fort, #Orléans, and #Lions of Lydia. I'd go for one (or combination) of these.

Got a fair amount of gaming in this week:

  • #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure (x2) TTS, Multiplayer with various expansions: Warming up for our final 2 Clank legacy games on the weekend.  The more versions of this game I play the more I like it.  (I personally own #Clank! In! Space!.)
  • #Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale Solo Physical: Such a fun easy game to pull out and play a quick round when I'm in the mood for some non-digital solo entertainment.
  • #Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated (x2) Physical multiplayer: FINALLY!  Got together outside with my group socially distanced.  Played games 9 and 10 of the campaign.  I super enjoyed playing this game although 2 games in a day is a bit much sometimes.  I'd be tempted to buy my own copy and play it again if I thought the group would be up for it. :)  If you like Clank at all and can get a group to commit to it I can't recommend it highly enough.
  • #Take 5 + Take a Number (x2 Physical): Had some friends over outside and I got them to play a couple of games of Take 5.  This game is a bit of fun once you get to know the other players and have played a few rounds.  We only played twice but I think I might be able to get it to the table again.
  • #Just One (x2 physical): Couple of games with same friends as well.  I think this one is their favourite.  It's a fun game for non-gamers with "ah hah!" moments and "groan" moments which are always fun.

Good week!

Great article!  I wanted to start off with that  

However, I wouldn’t call it picking a side because it’s not an either or choice really. 

There are games where the app is required like #Mansions of Madness: Second Edition or #Alchemists.  ( I guess you can play them app-less but they are meant to use the app.), there are games that are supplemented by apps like #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure and #Clank! In! Space!, and there are a bunch of great little app helpers like Scythe kick, the various #Gloomhaven apps, scoring apps etc.  

The radio plays for #Mechs vs. Minions aren’t exactly apps but they add to the game without being necessary to play it.

And of course there are digital implementation of games and some video games that might as well be board games. 

There is a huge continuance to look at and each case can be different. 

For me I like the innovative ways board games us apps.  I wouldn’t want every game to have an app but a game well integrated with a well done app can be a lot of fun and something a bit different from everything else.  The app helpers can make solo gaming a lot easier or make your evening run more smoothly.  But they aren’t all great or necessary so really it has to be considered on a case by case basis!

I can see that. I do however think with the proliferation of TCG's in the last 25 years that it could still find it's way to the mass market. Especially if is a part of a game as in #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure or #Mage Knight rather than the whole game like #Star Realms or #Dominion: Second Edition.

If I were to look at the game "objectively," I'd give it somewhere between 8 to 9/10. It's a fun, solid game that I'd be down to play when someone wants to. And the only reason why I don't rate it any higher is that I prefer games with more feeling of progression because they're more memorable and play out so differently with each game (e.g. #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, or games I haven't played like #The Quest for El Dorado)

So, while I'm over myself in terms of the game that I had wished for, I know that Fort isn't the typical game I would have gone out of my way to buy if I'm looking for a game to play with my wife (who also shares similar preferences.) If playing with more than 2p was a regular thing for me, than yes, I'd definitely get Fort. It's a wonderfully interactive deck-builder and I love games that really constrain or expand your moves based on the possibilities of what other players might do.

Hope that answers your question!

I don't have a lot. #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure and #Clank!: The Mummy's Curse, #Bargain Quest, #Proving Grounds, #Book of Dragons, and #Tsuro of the Seas (although I'm not sure if these daikaiju count as dragons...). In all of these games, the dragons aren't super huge; at least, itt doesn't feel like they are. Book of Dragons I got mainly for the cards haha

For whatever reason I've only played#Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure once. I really need to get that one played more. 

I really enjoy them. In fact, I'm working on my own right now. (Well, it's been a few months, but I am working on it.) I like the choices that I can add to my deck and make it mine.

#Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure is my favorite, and I'm sure Legacy will top that once I get it played. I also really like #Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game and Star Realms.

I think a "good" deckbuilder needs to provide something different, and give lots of options for how to build your deck. Clank! offers movement and combat, and a growing threat as the game progresses, for example. I think Dominion is a really good game, but I also think it has been improved on with many other deckbuilders. Still, I won't hesitate to play Dominion if asked.

I really didn't think I would have so many, as a lot of my games collection is curated to appeal to the four people I can actually play with regularly, which includes a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old. But here's my list:

  1. #Wingspan
  2. #Pandemic
  3. #Carcassonne
  4. #7 Wonders Duel
  5. #Santorini
  6. #Catan
  7. #Kingdomino
  8. #King of Tokyo
  9. #Forbidden Island
  10. #Clank!
  11. #Coup
  12. #Sushi Go!
  13. #Ticket to Ride: Europe
  14. #Dixit
  15. #The Resistance
  16. #Takenoko
  17. #Mysterium
  18. #Stone Age
  19. #Hive
  20. #Magic: The Gathering

Played #Scythe once and I played #Fuse twice and FINALLY beat Elite difficulty. For our first game night since the quarantine (yay!) we played #The Taverns of Tiefenthal which was a lot of fun! Interesting deckbuilding to say the least. Then we played #Hadara which, felt a lot like #7 Wonders but I found to be more enjoyable (I still like 7 Wonders though). Then last night we (me, my wife, and her brother) played two games of #Clank! with the The Mummy's Curse expansion. Dang, what a fantastic game Clank! is! 

We're hoping to play it with one of our married friends in the neighborhood who are also into games. I really want to play it soon. We played #Clank! last night and I a SO ready to take on the campaign!

I'm very excited to get in on this adventure and discovery of which you speak. Clank is one of my favorite games, so I know I'll love it haha

Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure hands down. Clank! In! Space! is great too! I keep saying that I own the full line but they keep coming out with expansions and I'm falling behind!

Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure is my choice! We've introduced this one to many (and most have ended up getting themselves a copy after!

X-Wing! Who knows? Maybe FFG will be cool with it :) 

Other favorites I'd love to see:

So true! the theme in that game is so well pulled together! I think some games manage to pull off theme without specialized pieces though. Its hard to talk about the game Fog of Love without sounding like you are talking about a real relationship, which is a real testament to how the design fits the theme. And games like Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure have cubes that represent noise but i'm never saying "oh no i have so many cubes down" i always say "oh no i'm making so much noise!!!"
