Patrick Rothfuss first introduced TAK in the second installment of the Kingkiller Chronicle, The Wise Manís Fear. However, the rules were not introduced in the book, because at the time there were none! Ernest and Rothfuss have brought TAK to life in an elegant two-player abstract strategy game reminiscent of classics like Go and mancala.
The University Edition of Tak features a smaller set of pieces (enough for a 5◊5 game) as well as a cloth bag, making Tak portable and compact.
Players attempt to make a road of their pieces connecting two opposite sides of the board. Players take turns either adding a piece to the board, or moving a stack of pieces under their control.
The University Set contains: 44 wooden Tavern Pieces, a 5x5 game board, drawstring bag and rules.
Time 10 to 20 Minutes
