You know what? I play a lot of boardgames, and I really want the designers to listen to my impulsively thought-out input rather than base any judgments on their hours of playtesting or the good sense that brought them this far.

1. I really like the deckbuilding system, but it's a little too random. Replace the cards with dice. Who doesn't love throwing dice?

2. Add some area control. There are literally dudes on a map in this game, and that might confuse some people who are expecting dudes on a map to have area control. I saw the pictures, and I saw a map, and some dudes, and was thoroughly confused. Just so you know, I represent every consumer viewpoint ever, as my wife is German-Japanese-American, and I'm Mexican-Swiss-American, and we're basically our own focus group.

3. I also hate the fantasy theme- I'd much rather it be something that I can relate to. Perhaps swarthy handsome multi-racial married men living in Folsom?

4. Which brings me to the title. CLANK! It has punctuation IN the title! That's ridiculous. You're breaking the poorly formatted data I use at home to track my game plays. At the very least, you should have a rule about yelling clank or something. All the best party games do. My favourite part of chess is yelling CHECK! whenever I touch a king.

5. I also don't like the way they over-sexualized the monkey bot. He's not wearing anything! At the same time, the queen of hearts is wearing far too many clothes.

6. Speaking of scantily clad women, this would do so much better if you had miniatures and put it on kickstarter. Seriously, metal miniatures would be perfect for this game, because they make a CLANK! sound when you set them on the table!

7. It shouldn't be too expensive. I've researched everything there is about production, distribution, and risk in this industry, and if you plan on charging more than ten dollars for an expansion (which is basically just cards, wood, metal, dice, and cardboard- crazy, right?), no one's going to buy it, I promise you.

Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I looked it up, and I am very entitled, which means that you better make these changes or I am going to boycott your title when it comes out, and whine about primary, secondary, and tertiary market prices.

*Tertiary market prices are, of course, what you pay for a game that has been fully masticated and digested.

Haha no seriously I demand these changes or I'm going to light up this board like a self-immolating Shaquille O'Neal whining about it under multiple thread titles.

I always respect everyone's opinions, but these suggestions gave me diarrhea.

This is in no way satire. It is simply a modest proposal to the designer.

It doesn't sound as if you enjoyed the game at all. You bought a deck builder and you want to throw dice instead?

Stop it!

You have no idea how many times I've had to explain mid game that there is no area control in Clank. I don't blame them. There is LITERALLY "dudes on a map". The amount oversight and missed opportunity involved with this game is absolutely absurd.

I totally disagree with EVERY point.
1) throwing dice in a deck building game? Wtf?
2) Area control? It's a game about sneaking and stealing and not making noise... So no Area control
3) The fantasy theme perfectly fits The game and the setting
4) What's wrong with the punctuation? It's perfect
5) I Can't conplain about The card designs
6) I don't think Metal parts would increase The fun any more... But this would be a Part of you number 7...
7) when I compare The price with the fun I have with the game, it is totally Worth

I don't know man area control seems like a natural fit for this game. This game is basically Tyrants of the Underdark already.

What I was expecting was lots of steampunk in the game. I mean CLANK! just says steampunk to me. Or zombies. It kinda says zombies too.

I absolutely LOVE people who don't understand jokes. They are so entertaining. And so committed to their hobbies.

With the water added in the New expansion, you could actually build something with the cards......

Geez. And all I wanted was more cards that thinned out the deck.

I think they should move to bakelite tiles instead of cards. That way they make a real CLANK when you shuffle.

And if they had a metal board, it would clank everytime you fold it.
