Tak is a two-player abstract strategy game dreamed up by Pat Rothfuss in “The Wise Man’s Fear” and made reality by James Ernest. In Tak, players attempt to make a road of their pieces connecting two opposite sides of the board.

“My next several hours were spent learning how to play Tak. Even if I had not been nearly mad with idleness, I would have enjoyed it. Tak is the best sort of game: simple in its rules, complex in its strategy. Bredon beat me handily in all five games we played, but I am proud to say that he never beat me the same way twice.”

-Kvothe, The Wise Man’s Fear


The University Edition is a portable version of the game Tak and contains pieces for a 5×5 game in a cloth bag and a 5×5 board.
