Yesterday we played ! It is probably one of the most fun games I know. The card drafting, combined with the board and carefully planned timing is pure genius. We also played for the first time. A pretty hard game with lots of fiddly bits, but nonetheless straight forward mechanics. I believe it is a fun game with some strategic merit, but need to play a lot more to be sure.

@robert It is really good. Have you played Clank! in Space! ? I'm considering adding either that or original Clank! to my collection, but looking for input on which is better.

@gunnar I have! And I like Clank! in Space a smidgen more, but I love scifi, so it isn't a fair comparison...

@robert meanwhile I've read a little bit about the differences, and as I understand it Space! is a little more complex. I think love Clank! because it is pretty light - and perfect for casual play. So that might settle it for me.

@robert and also, read that a game of Space! could take two hours or more. That's a lot more than Clank! has taken for my gaming group so far. We usually get through a couple of games in two hours. I prefer that.

@gunnar my group races through the game fast. I can see how a group could make the game linger, but that seems doable with both versions.

@robert I can see that. I have lots of fantasy-themed games, and "need" more sci-fi-themed games... still not decided as you probably can tell 😃
