Checkers and chess are classics, but where is the modern twist? tak•tak is today's new two-player strategy board game. tak•tak has simple rules like checkers and the layered strategies of chess. The game uses the familiar grid and 'battlefield' board to allow players to "advance, stack, and attack" chips of matching colors and numbers. While learning to play is quick and easy, it takes a real strategist to win.
Our company began in 2013 with our original game called Twizmo!. Since then our creative itch has led to this even more ambitious project. tak•tak has been well received and reviewed by casual players and game critics alike. However, we are at a critical juncture where we need funds to order inventory and begin nationwide distribution. Additionally, we would use funds for a more robust marketing campaign.
We've tested the game extensively and the positive feedback has led us to believe that, with your help, tak•tak has the potential to be the next classic board game.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is our current lack of consumer awareness. More than anything, we need the public to become familiar with and recognize the game so that there will be support in the marketplace for any retail partners that put it on their shelves or online.
Production for tak*tak has already started. Your help will assist us in producing our next order and in launching an engaging marketing campaign to raise awareness so the game we love so much will become known by a wider community. We feel confident that if more people play it, then the product will sell.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
