- 2-4 Players
- Ages 12+

Are you ready for an Adventure?
Avoid dangerous monsters, sneak quietly through tunnels, choose your path carefully, and avoid taking too much damage! If you can snag an artifact and escape the dungeon before anyone else, the townsfolk will reward you and your opponents may perish!
Every good adventurer needs a pack full of treasure, but should you risk spending more time in the depths to steal even more? Is it worth buying a backpack to haul an additional artifact? Maybe it's better to snatch something cheap and get out!
Choose your cards carefully to create the ultimate adventurer deck! Early in the game, collect skill cards and money to help you purchase what you need. By the end of the game you may need boots to sneak around or swords to help you survive!
How To Play?
Draw your hand!
On your turn, play the five cards in your hand. Use them to move, fight monsters, buy equipment, and add more cards to your deck.
Choose your path!
Some cards allow you to move through the dungeon. You may find monsters to fight, treasure to steal, shops to purchase equipment, or crystal caverns that slow your movement. Make sure to make it out of the Dragon's Keep while there's still time!
Build a better deck!
Use skill cards to purchase better cards to add to your deck. Each round your deck will get stronger by adding cards to help you move, fight, gain skill points, or add to your end-game points. Beware of cards that make noise and alert the Dragon!
Avoid the Dragon!
As you crash through the dungeon with metal armor and treasure, you may make some noise. When you play a Clank! card, put a health cube in the Dragon's area. If a Dragon card is drawn, you may take damage for each cube!

Clank! is a deck building game where the cards you acquire and play help you move through pathways in a dungeon to collect the best artifact you can and get out before the dragon attacks you enough times to "knock you out". Moving through the dungeon silently is safer but not easy. Most of the time you're making noise and generating "Clank!". The more Clank! you generate, the more the dragon will target you when it attacks. The more artifacts the players take, the more enraged the dragon gets and more damage it deals when it attacks. It's deck building with push your luck elements in a fantasy setting. Clank! could be a gateway game or perhaps next step after gateway.
There are some other deckbuilding games with board elements. Another one I enjoy is Tyrants of the Underdark. That one has more strategic decisions, but Clank! is just more fun. I tend to get bored with many games quickly and want to move on to something new after several plays. I've played Clank! quite a bit and it's one of the few that I don't see myself burning out on anytime soon. It's just too much fun.
In the game you use cards to fight monsters, move through the dungeon to get treasures, and buy better cards. As you buy better and better cards your deck gets better. You're in a race to get the best loot on the board. The most expensive loot is further down in the dungeon. As you progress you have cards that tell you that you have made noise (a clank). When this happens you put a colored cube of yours into the clank pile. From time to time a dragon symbol appears on cards and then those cubes are dumped into a bag and drawn from. If your cube is drawn it counts as a wound for you. You need to get out of the dungeon before you are knocked out by too many wounds.
For much of its (usual) 60—75 minute duration, this game is a point salad free for all, but this 360 degree scramble is given some direction in that the board is a dungeon delver and there are a limited number of gettable items. Add to this a simple deck building mechanism that multiplies possibilities and creates a puzzle, and the resultant game is a unique and fun conflation. And then there’s that very fun (and ominous) press-your-luck titular mechanic with the dragon bag, from which cubes (wounds) are drawn.
Overall, Clank! is easy to learn and a lot of lighthearted fun....but once somebody exits the dungeon, the countdown to death begins, and the pressure and intensity increase immediately. Kind of like Mage Knight (simplified) meets Super Mario Brothers in a subterranean Candyland.
I loved playing with him (takes about an hour to play). My ex wife HATED it (it goes between houses) b/c "too complex." At the game night, people ages 10-50 were playing it and enjoying it. I guess they make other versions too (a space one etc). Anyway, $$$ but I have already played it 4 times with him and neighbor kids (ages 10-13) playing it as well. Buy some clear sleeves (you will need 200) for the cards and have fun.
P.S. My son loves xbox, switch, and ps4 so the fact that he enjoys playing instead of those things is an approval from him. You just might have to read the directions twice and play slowly the first time to understand it all.
The negatives. The board has a high gloss finish, which causes a lot of glare if playing in a room with windows. A matte finish would have been better. Also, the wood used to make the game pieces is way too soft. The pieces chip and splinter way too easily. Some of the wooden pieces were also deformed from the factory. The instruction booklet also contains multiple typos.
Overall, great game and I highly recommend it if you can get it for $35-ish. The MSRP of $60 is way too much for a game with this many quality control issues.
