Four generations of our family all live within three blocks of each other in the rural Canadian prairie town of Three Hills Alberta (yes, there actually are 3 hills).
We often get together to play games, everything from darts,  role playing DND, computer games (AOE II is still a favourite) to classic board games.
I have a difficult time with some of the classics as I find I just can’t stay engaged as I wait for my turn to come around.
When it came to games with those pesky letter tiles and playing for hours on the confines of a board, I just couldn’t do it. Thats when TAKE 3 was developed. I wanted somethign easy to learn, quick to play and simple to score. A game that you could easily fit into a short time slot but that you could also play all night if you got a competition going and the rest of the family could not stand to let me win. In fact, that was one of the first taglines – “The game you can’t wait to win.”
I do love competition and challenging the kids and grandkids to try and beat me. They love it when they win against me and thats part of the fun. The bragging rights can carry right on to the next time we have a game.
In the chart below, TAKE 3 is the fastest crossword game on the table. By adding timer based draws its up to you to decide the pace you can handle. That being said, TAKE 3 is completely adaptable and you can change up the playing style to suit any player level and still have a great time. We also have developed a list of variations for the game and an expansion pack is coming that the grandkids call “The Gambler”.
Our family is all skilled at inventing and crafting in various medium and that shows up in the making TAKE 3. The muslin game bags are stamped with handmade rubber logo stamp. Each tile (204 in a standard game) is cut by hand from sheets of recyclable styrene. The small package lends itself to being easily taken along in a coat pocket or purse.  We have also created a unique mailing system that helps to keep the shipping costs down.
TAKE 3 is live on Kickstarter until January 7, 2024 and at the time of this review, was already 90% funded. Check out the how to play video’s and list of FAQ’s for more info.
This a great game to add to your collection and one you will enjoy often, especially when you need a fast pace, quick setup game to play.
 TAKE 3 – The fastest crossword game on the table! will be live on KICKSTARTER until Sun, January 7 2024 10:35 PM PST, and has a funding goal of $2,414.
