"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
Tak is a two-player abstract strategy game dreamed up by designer Pat Rothfuss in "The Wise Man's Fear" and made real by James Ernest. In Tak, players try to make a road of their pieces connecting two opposite sides of the board.
