The Toys Bulletin staff may have play tested the game of tak•tak more than any other in recent memory. We did so because each time we played, we saw additional strategies and moves that had escaped us during previous games. We also played it a lot because we simply enjoyed the challenge.
The game arrives in a sturdy box containing 24 plastic chips (12 black and 12 white), and a game board measuring approximately 10½” W x 12½” L. The playing surface features a 6 x 7 grid of 42 squares where the game is played. Each of the chips (about 1½” square) is numbered with either a 10, 20, 30 or 40 in one of 3 colors, blue, green or yellow.
