Tak Kickstarter delivers

So, a couple of weeks ago, I got the one thing that wargamers dread more than the Royal Mail Red Card of Frustration. The Royal Mail Grey Card Of Gouging You £8 As A "Handling Fee" For Customs Charges. So, I gritted my teeth, paid up, and waited.

Wait a second, this doesn't look like miniatures!

No, it is in fact "Tak", a board game that Patrick Rothfuss made up in his Kingkiller Chronicles series of books. An enterprising gentleman then came up with Actual Rules and then there was a Kickstarter.

I also threw in a few quid for another card game called Pairs, because why not? Quick games we can play while travelling are always a good investment.

I went for a travellers set, because I'm going to a LARP called Empire now, and this will fit in wonderfully. The cloth mat was an extra, and if you look closely, you'll see a coin to the right of the picture that can be used as an imaginary "centre square" on a table if you're lacking a board.

This was wonderfully timed, because it meant I could take it to a small player social event that was happening this last weekend. This post was written a while ago and set on a timer, because I am probably sleeping right about now.

    Well in that case sweet dreams
