Tak: A Beautiful Game
We’re writing to let you know that our latest project and biggest Kickstarter ever, Tak: A Beautiful Game, is live now! Originally imagined by Patrick Rothfuss in The Wise Man’s Fear and brought to life by James Ernest, Tak is an elegant new two-player abstract strategy game in the same family as chess, go, and mancala.
Offered as part of the campaign is an affordable Tavern set at $25, the retail version at $55, and a wide variety of “Takcesssories” including a collector coin, Pairs deck, and companion book with extended lore on the game. Most recently we’ve announced a portable cloth board as well as an heirloom-quality Tak set crafted by Wyrmwood Gaming and named for Devi, one of our favorite characters from Pat’s world. As of now we’ve reached just over 1,400% of our goal, and are still adding new content to the companion book.
Tak represents over a year of hard work and testing by James and our dedicated fans. If you haven’t tried it, now is the perfect time to take a look! Thanks for being a part of the Cheapass Games family. We hope you’ll enjoy Tak!
