Tak: A Beautiful Game (2nd Edition)

Worldbuilders Market

“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

Introduced in The Wise Man’s Fear, Tak: A Beautiful Game is a 2-player strategy game invented by James Ernest of Cheapass Games and Patrick Rothfuss that is reminiscent of classics like Go and mancala.

Enhance your existing collection with a Wolf and Hawk Capstone Set or Daisies and Stone Board.

You can see our entire lineup of Tak games and accessories in our Tak: A Beautiful Game collection.

Patrick Rothfuss was born in Madison, Wisconsin to awesome parents. After nine years at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, he accidentally had enough credits to graduate with an English degree. Patrick then went to grad school. He’d rather not talk about it. In March 2007, The Name of the Wind was published and met with surprising success. In the years since, it has been translated into 30 languages, won all manner of awards, and become a bestseller in several countries. After a great deal of work and a few raised eyebrows from his patient editor, Wise Man’s Fear came out in March 2011, immediately hitting #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. When not working on the third book of the series, Pat plays with his kiddos, makes mead, and runs Worldbuilders, a geek-centered charity that has raised more than a million dollars for Heifer International.
