"Whenever I can make learning something more than text books I go for it. Learning games, like Kloak, from Timberdoodle is an excellent way to make learning thinking skills more practical and lots of fun."
This artful combination of hide-and-seek and tic-tac-toe will have you and your opponent scrambling to remember where each colorful peg is hidden. The first to align two sets of the same color wins!
In Kloak, you have three choices when it comes to moving. Either slide one of the small colorful pegs to an adjacent open space, lift a kloak and place it on an adjoining peg or free area, or slide the kloak and its mystery peg to a nearby space. If you think there are three pegs of the same color in a row, unkloak them and see if you are right. If that sounds daunting, Kloak has a more accessible adaptation and versions for three participants or two teams.
Play this beautiful all-wood strategy game to improve your student’s memory and cause-and-effect thinking. Kloak is recommended for ages 8+ and includes all hardwood components.
Be the first to align 2 sets of 3 small pieces of the same color and win!
A player may either move a piece or score.
A small piece may be moved 1 space in any direction as long as that space is open. A big piece may be moved 1 space in any direction as long as that space is open OR is occupied by a small piece (the player would "kloak" the small piece).
If a big piece is "kloaking" a little piece, you have 3 options:
1. Lift the big piece and move it by itself to an adjacent open space.
2. Lift the big piece and place it over another small piece on an adjacent open space.
3. Slide both the big and small pieces onto an adjacent open space.
First method--Move a small piece so that 3 of the same color are in a row.
Second method--Lift 1-3 big pieces to “unkloak” 3 small pieces of the same color in a row.
The instruction booklet contains additional rules for 3- and 4-player games.
