This is a German gameboard I made for my neighbor family. The original board was too large to take in their camper. This board is hindged in the middle to make it more convenient to store. Made of 1/2” Baltic birch with edge banding. The finish is Deft matte lac. The silver lines are made with a sharpie pen. The board is 19” square. The game pieces are i/2” wooden balls.TAC – the unique combination of board game and card game – it can be called without exaggeration a small revolution in the field of tactical games. Despite simple rules each game quickly develops into an exciting challenge. The goal of two players or two teams is to be the first to bring their own balls home. But that is easier said than done, because only strong team play and forethoughted, flexible tactics pave the way to success. Perceive the plans of the opposing team and cancel them. But caution is required: it can happen that you must lose ground, although you do not want to. Finally, heavenly creatures interfere during play. A powerful warrior may step on the board and rearrange the balance of power. An angel may appear to rescue someone from great emergency – but whom?

TAC is suitable both for fast, fun games and for tense, strategic, but friendly games. Each game develops differently from the last and guarantees timeless fun.

TAC stands for Tactical. The 4 sets of holes in the 4 quardrants are the home areas. The game is quite complex but very addicting

Nice job! Now tell us what TAC stands for and/or something about the game? How is it played? Looks interesting but I can’t find much about it. Thanks.

Why is the 4 holes spacing/pattern different between the sets of two across the board from the two north/south sets along the hinge seam?

Thanks for the comments! I did an edit above to give more information on the game. (TAC stands for tactical.) I hope this is helpful. Here’s the website.
