To end the week, how about some news that I missed out on while I was
saving the world away?
One of my favourite games played in 2017, Clank! In! Space!, is expanding! (too many exclamation marks…I’m going to run out! Damn, there’s another one…).
This beautiful, wonderful deck-building heist game is getting a new expansion this August.
Renegade Game Studios recently announced Clank! In! Space! Apocalypse! (oh, my poor exclamation mark key! Damn it, did it again…)
From the Renegade blurb:
The deck-building adventure of Clank! In! Space! continues. Small pockets of resistance continue to oppose Lord Eradikus, but the evil cyborg now plots to wipe them out with one grand and wicked scheme!
Thwart the efforts of Lord Eradikus!
Reap the rewards of noble (and sometimes reluctant) heroism!
Save the galaxy…. And get rich in the process!
Maybe you can avert the Apocalypse! (Or at least escape with the treasure while someone else does!)
The original game has so many cards with nods to popular science fiction properties that I’m surprised they could find more.
But I trust designer Paul Dennen to come up with some!
The game comes with 35 new cards, two double-sided modules (the only expansion the game really needed was more modules to vary the map even more), 8 scheme cards (schemes? Hoo boy!!! This sounds awesome), and somebody named Lord Haldos.
I can only imagine what he’s doing there and his relationship to Lord Eradikus!
Clank! In! Space! Apocalypse! is scheduled for a GenCon release and to hit stores in August, and to retail for $25.
And I’d better end this post before I totally wear out my exclamation mark key! (Damn it)
