Set in Japan during the late Middle ages. Acting as shoguns, players in TA‐KE attempt to consolidate their power and expand their influence in the empire. To this end, you choose people that you appoint to the emperor's court. But is the person selected well and are his skills currently useful to the shogun? Use clever tactics, plan ahead, and keep a close eye on your opponent in order to assert your position at court and thus win the game.
