The evil Lord Eradikus has all but conquered the galaxy, and is now on a victory lap across the sector in his flagship, Eradikus Prime. He may rule with an iron grip, but his most prized artifacts are about to slip through his cyborg claws. You and your fellow thieves have challenged each other to sneak aboard his ship, hack your way into its command module, and steal from him. Along the way, you’ll recruit allies and snatch up extra loot. But one false step and—Clank! Careless noise draws the attention of Lord Eradikus. Hacking into his command module and stealing his artifacts increases his rage.
You’d better hope your friends are louder than you are if you want to make it to an escape pod and get out alive…
Clank! In Space! is a game where the concept of deck building and dungeon exploration had a baby. Much like the game Dominion, you centre around building your deck with new cards by buying and obtaining cards from your current deck. Additionally, your deck will help you to move around and perform actions on the game board.
Your objective of the game is to move from your starting location, the cargo bay (inside the Eradikus Prime ship), to the command centre, steal an artifact, make it back to the cargo bay and flea in one of the escape pods. If you take fatal damage during your adventure you are out of the game. Player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins.
