How to Upgrade Your Klask: Tips for Smoother Gameplay

Klask is a great game! You can read our full review of the game here, but if you are reading this, you’re likely trying to figure out how to make your Klask board play even better. I was in the same boat and wanted my Klask board to play so smoothly that you would think it was made of slick ice. After a lot of research and an hour of work, I made my copy of Klask so satisfying to play. Here’s how I did it.

Supplies you’ll need to upgrade your Klask:

Mothers Microfiber Polishing Pad and Cleaning Pads for Car Detailing, 5 Inch Diameter, Yellow, 6 Pack
MOTHERS 05550 California Gold Pure Brazilian Carnauba Wax Paste (Ultimate Wax System, Step 3) - 12 oz.
TapeCase Circles, Converted from SG05-03 Teflon PTFE Tape, 0.5" Diameter, roll of 139

That’s it! That’s all you need to make your copy of Klask play better. It’s quite an odd combination of things to order for a tabletop game, and my wife was probably wondering which car of ours is deserving of a polish (it’s neither, if you were wondering). Now, if you’re a sports car owner and hardcore PC gamer, you might already have all these items in your possession. I guess you’re ahead of the game and winning at life more than those of us who have to put together that very random Amazon order.

Anyway, once your delivery driver brings you these essentials and you finish explaining to your wife that it’s not for the car but for your new board game, and you need some time to polish your new beauty, it’s time to get down to business.

Klask Upgrades
Klask upgrade time!

All you need to do now is crack open that fresh can of carnauba wax (give it a big whiff, I know you’ll want to) and apply a little to your microfiber cloth. Begin polishing your Klask board with the wax. The wax will protect your board from scratches and make the strikers slide much more easily around the board.

You can apply as few or as many coats as you want. I went with three coats, which seemed to provide the best protection and slickness. If you apply too many coats, the wax may start to build up and affect the performance over time.

You’ll want to give each coat a little time to dry and soak in. In between coats, you can work on those PTFE Stickers. All you need to do is place them over the magnets on the striker and handle. If your stickers are too big, just trim them down to size with scissors or an X-Acto knife.

Once you’ve done all that, you’ll be amazed at how smoothly your copy of Klask plays. You’ll minimize the scratches on your board, and it will feel like an entirely different class of game as your magnets slide across the board like magic. You will need to occasionally re-wax your board as playing will wear down your polish and protection.

An additional upgrade to take your Klask board to the next level:

One other problem you may encounter when playing Klask is a wobbly or unlevel board. An easy way to fix this is to get some small furniture wedges if you want a quick fix that you can just throw into the box. This solves the wobbliness but can make the board unlevel.

If you have the time and capability, you can make it so that you have a level and sturdy Klask board anywhere you go by installing some leveling feet on your board. They are adjustable, so you should be able to make your Klask board level and sturdy on even the jankiest table.

You could even go a step further and attach a mini level with the feet, so you don’t have to guesstimate.
