Clank in Space + Apocalypse Review [Pixelkin]

Read the full review at Pixelkin

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.

Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate – Live Play!

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.
