Tak: University Addition – Cheapass Games


Tak: University Edition by Cheapass Games

Ages 12 and up

Tak is the board game described in Patrick Rothfuss’ bestselling novel, The Wise Man’s Fear. It is told to be an elegant two-player strategy game, a refined past time for nobles. At first, it was just an imaginary game, but eventually it was brought to life. In Tak, players attempt to build a road, a string of pieces that connect opposite sides of the board. While very simple in concept, this game is deep and complex.

Tak: University Edition by Cheapass Games available at Gnome Games

The game of Tak, simple to learn but complex to master, was born from the mind of Patrick Rothfuss in the second installment of the Kingkiller Chronicle, The Wise Man’s Fear. No rules were in the book because at the time, none existed! With time, Tak was born into an elegant two-player abstract strategy game. To win, a player must use their stones to build a “road” and connect two sides of the board. Players go back and forth, creating roads and placing walls to foil their opponent. Much like chess or mancala, this beautiful game is deep and intriguing, with countless strategies to master. This university edition is smaller and more portable than ever before.
