This one is a bit abstract.

I’m honestly trying to get into the habit of wirtiing posts again.  I didn’t prep anything to add to the adventure post from last time but I will i swear.   Though in gaming i have been sort of obsessed with abstract strategy games like Tak, Onitama and Santorini.  Tak I is based on a game spoken about in the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. and its freakin amazing.   You can pick up a set or just grab the rules and star playing with whatever is lying around. Tak Free Edition  Onitama is a martial arts styled game about a battle between two masters and their disciples.  Its quick but still has great depth because of the variety and style of moves the pieces can make.  Santorini is one i Just heard about whit workers and levels and a great mechanic but i have yet to try it out.   I’ve been kind of obsessed with these because like many abstract games you can really just get the rules and start playing with whatever.  You don’t need any specialty pieces you can play with checkers, tokens, nuts, meeples, or coins. and you can setup a board wherever with whatever you have. All three games I mentioned are all played on a 5 x 5 grid. (well tak can be 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 … etc.)  So check them out and play build sets or boards and play wherever or whenever you can.
