In space no one can hear you scream, but Lord Eradikus will surely hear all that noise you’ve been making while snooping around his ship. All that clanking will summon his wrath, and your only hope is to run faster than your friends.
Clank in Space is a brilliantly fun board game that combines the strategy of a deckbuilding card game with a space-themed dungeon crawl. The recently released Apocalypse expansion adds new villainous schemes to thwart your heist plans even more, creating an always exciting and memorable race through the mother ship.
From Eight-Minute Empire to Above and Below, Ryan and Malorie Laukat have garnered acclaim as the result of their games’ immersive stories and worlds. They tell us about their unique creative partnership and output.
As I mentioned yesterday, we had to cancel last night’s D&D show due to scheduling conflicts. We had Chris (AKA Mannix) staying at our house, however, so we decided to try something completely different: live stream a board game.
Our set up wasn’t great and we’re not exactly a professional studio. But we had a lot of fun with it. We played two games of the 2017 D&D retheming of Betrayal at House on the Hill, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, and games both went really well (Betrayal can be very hit or miss and wildly unbalanced).
Thanks for watching and we’ll be back to regularly scheduled D&D next week!
By the way, if you’re interested in learning more about Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, I made a review video for it earlier this year:
In Megaland players explore video game levels fraught with enemies but filled with treasure. If they survive they can use that treasure to purchase buildings and earn victory points.
Megaland plays quickly and easily and features beautiful artwork by Red Raven Games designer and illustrator Ryan Laukat. The gameplay provides a solid, family-friendly introduction into more advanced board game concepts such as set collection, resource management, and risk assessment.
I interviewed Paradox Interactive and Free League Publishing on Paradox’s recent board game licensing extravaganza, including the Kickstarter-funded Crusader Kings: The Board Game.
You can read it in the October issue of Tabletop Gaming Magazine, available now in print and digital.
My next RogueWatson Reviews video covers a smaller, more casual game that provides a simple but effective twist on the classic dominoes formula.
