Tak (game)

Tak is a two-player abstract strategy game designed by James Ernest and Patrick Rothfuss and published by Cheapass Games in 2016. It was introduced in Patrick Rothfuss' book The Wise Man's Fear, Day 2 of The Kingkiller Chronicle.

The objective of Tak is to be the first to connect any two opposite edges of the board with their pieces, called "stones", creating a road. To this end, players will take turns attacking and capturing their opponent's pieces while supporting their own.

Cheapass Games created a Kickstarter campaign in order to bring the game to publication. The campaign was launched on April 19, 2016 with a goal of US$50,000; it ended on May 23, 2016 with 12,187 backers and US$1,351,142 pledged. Among tabletop games, it made #23 in funding and #13 in backer count at the time.
