Why didn’t anyone tell me this game is better than the original!!!!? The original Clank is one of my all time favourites, but clank in space is an amazing stand alone game that doesn’t form part of the original game.
You don’t need to have heard of, or played, clank to learn and love this game.
The cards are so cool and the crystals element makes the game more complex than the original dungeon exploring game.
Awesome game with heaps of stock cards and a modular board resulting in a varied and exciting game each of the many times we've played. It can be harsh towards the end after one player escapes, resulting in a player being stuck in Space - but this just adds to the "let's play again, right now" reasoning! Highly recommended... Deck building with a board, strategy mixed with luck and random rewards, competitive fun with some harsh outcomes - what is there not to like about that??!
A very entertaining combination of strategy board game and deck builder. I think this is the mechanically stronger of the two main versions, although there are less expansions for this version if that’s your thing. Personally I’m very happy with just spending the money on this version and being regularly entertained enough and spending the price of an expansion on another different game. Components are generally very good quality and the “bolt and run back” aspect of the first version of Clank seems less of an issue in this version. It's not Grand Strategy, but it's great fun. Recommended for Science Fiction fans.
This game is great for both solo (with the free app) or multiplayer. Simple easy rules make it excellent for both veterans and as a gateway game to get your non gamer friends into the action. Good components and very fast playing. If you want a fun, not complex, fast playing deck builder than I highly recommend this! There are plenty of game playthroughs or tutorials on youtube to see if it's your cup of tea.
