Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure

At the recent PAX Unplugged convention, Dire Wolf Digital announced a new Clank! game in partnership with Penny Arcade, Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated, coming in Fall 2019. Clank! A Deck Building Adventure by designer Paul Dennen uses deck building mechanics of gain money, buy cards, fight foes, but added movement in a dungeon to the mix. Players had to run quickly through the depths, collect an artifact, then make their way back to the surface, all while trying not to make enough noise (CLANK) to invoke the ire of the beast. Clank! has won several awards, has a spider expansion, a mummy’s tomb expansion, and a version in space, yet still remains at a very respectable #61 in the boardgamegeek top 100. Now the promise of adding legacy elements to this great game is sure to have fans excited. Acquisitions Incorporated, which started in 2008 with the simple idea of “friends having fun playing Dungeons & Dragons”, has become a 20 year podcast and IP with a strong following.

From the press release – “Found your own franchise of the legendary adventuring company Acquisitions Incorporated, and shepherd your fledgling treasure-hunters to immortal corporate glory over the course of multiple games.”

Renegade Games Studios have announced an expansion to Clank: A Deck-Building Adventure. It’s been almost a year since the last expansion, Clank! Sunken Treasures, which released March 2017. Players will explore a new pyramid themed board with a wandering mummy, which they have to avoid, and new monsters and tombs.

Untold riches await you inside the pyramids of the Ancients – but they are well protected. An undying Mummy guardian spreads a vile curse to those who would rob its tomb. And, inevitably, the treasure has attracted a dragon. Can you escape the fearsome Croxobek? [source]

In Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, players venture underground to loot treasure as quietly as possible to avoid the dragon’s attention. When the dragon awakens he attacks those who have made the most noise. To win, players need to have the most valuable treasure and make it out of the dungeon alive!

Dire Wolf Digital designed and co-published the first expansion, Clank! Sunken Treasures, and was their first foray into board game publishing. They’ve designed this latest expansion and will co-publish it with Renegade Games.

Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios:

The Mummy’s Curse ramps up the suspense as players try to avoid being cursed by the wandering monster. We can’t wait to share this with Clank! fans everywhere!

Clank! The Mummy’s Curse will see release in March 2018. The game is ideal for 2-4 players, aged 12+, and takes 30-60 minutes if players have a particularly good treasure run.
