Ranking at the top of current board games that I play with my lovely girlfriend is Clank! 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.
