Plain and simple, Yaks is an opportunity to be ridiculous with your friends. We’ve been part of many group game nights and wanted to bring something a bit louder, a lot more subjective, and totally personalized to the table. Yaks tests your wit and vocabulary like no other game before. Each round provides just 4 letters for you to create an acronym or phrase in 60 short seconds. We think you’ll be surprised at what comes out of your mouth (more often than not.)
The rules are simple: a player rolls the four dice and then arranges them in any order. The rest of the table crafts their best and funniest Acronym that they can create. The dice roller gets to choose the winner for that round. A Yak is claimed and the diced are passed to the next player who becomes the next judge. Subjective and Simple.
Yaks "Alpha" Dice are molded from resin and each letter has been engraved to last a lifetime. The four dice are different from one another with some letters repeating and other eliminated creating maximum chances to utilize works that start more words than others.
FULLY CUSTOMIZED DICE - They all have a different configuration
The Yaks are durable PVC. The markers are also PVC with black ink that will last hundreds of hours should they be used and stored (top on tightly) correctly. The Timer is PVC with glass and sand hourglass timer inside. The Box and Dry Erase Boards are made from long lasting 350 GSM 1.2mm CCN Grey Board. (We don't exactly know what this means but it's industry standard and one of the more expensive options.)
THE WILD YAK DECK (52 Cards - $6) Every time you roll a Wild Yak Head you have a world of options. During play-testing we found quite a few players that were indecisive so we crafted a deck of our favorite words to help you out.
Bonus: The Wild Yak Deck also doubles as a standard deck of playing cards in case you need to play WAR or Poker as a tie breaker.
OFFICIAL YAKS T-SHIRT ($15) will be available in Charcoal. When ordering please note that the shirt might shrink a bit when deciding what size you'd like.
* Add-Ons will be available to order at the conclusion of the campaign.

Risks and challenges
We have spent months and months preparing this Kickstarter and have little doubt that we'll deliver a fun and finished game similar, but better, than the prototype seen here.
With all international orders we will reach out through email with any risk and challenges our partner shipper expresses. That said, we are partnering with Quartermaster Logistics who has shipped thousands of games across the globe and has the experience necessary to complete this task.
That said, an act of God could certainly halt all production and should that happen we will be open and honest through every step of the process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
