Clacks box cover

The Fastest (non-magical) Messaging System on the Discworld.
Using a semaphore system of shuttered lamps on top of high towers, the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company has revolutionised long-distance communications on the Discworld. Their network of Clacks towers covers most of the Unnamed Continent, but now the old postal service is fighting back.

You can play Clacks three different ways. The first is a competitive game where players try to outdo each other to become the fastest Clacks operator. The second is a cooperative game that recreates the race against the Post Office in the novel. Players must work together to send a message, one letter at a time before Moist von Lipwig reaches Genua. In addition to this, there are four ways you can increase the difficulty of this version of play.  Finally, there is a two-player introductory race game, ideal for teaching children.

  1. Jason B.

    A really cool family board game, based in the magical world of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld. We play Clacks with our family on a regular basis. It offers an easy race game for the children, a brilliant cooperative game where we help each other create letters for words to defeat the Post Office, and a fun player versus player game, which the kids often enjoy beating us. It’s a simple word game using lamp tile to create letters, a bit like semaphore. You can even make up words for your opponents.
