Tok Tok is a fun, fast-paced game of dexterity that many have described as a "Reverse Jenga". With over 10,000 copies sold in Korea, this hit game is now taking the USA by storm! Play from 2-7 players as you become a woodman (or woman) trying to take down some bark (+1 point each) without knocking off the center pieces (-5 points each). You get 2 chops with the axe each turn and the game continues until all the bark is gone! This is a great dexterity game for all ages.
BGG Morgan Dontanville:"10 over 10! This is a perfect dexterity game. I'm thinking about getting squirrel stickers to put on some bark to make them worth 2 points each. "
BGG Bigby Wolfe:"Great family game that also works well as a quick filler game or party game with a small group."
BGG Philippe Beaudoin:"As dexterity games go, this ranks among the best."
BGG Mike B:"Silly but very addictive dexterity filler. Like it so much I bought some more as presents and for trades."
BGG Eric Henson:"This is quite a fun little dexterity game! It's excellent for quick play, and is unique enough to draw a crowd."
Rules for the game
BGG Ender Wiggins:"Is Toc Toc Woodman for you? As others have said, this is like Jenga, but done right. It's sillier, quicker, and just better all round. Toc Toc Woodman is a dexterity game with great components and theme, and I'm glad to see it more readily available in a new addition. Don't make the mistake of thinking it's just for kids, this is a keeper for gamers and non-gamers of all ages!" Read the entire, comprehensive, picture-loaded review here.
BGG Gerald Gan:"Toc Toc Woodman is a game that's fun to look at and even more fun to play. The game is relatively easy to set-up, and very easy to explain. The colorful and toylike components appeal to children of all ages. The game can also appeal to adults looking for something very light and silly to play. Overall, this game has been a hit with my daughter and I'm glad to have it as part of our collection. If you're looking for a game to play with your child, I'd heartily recommend Toc Toc Woodman... I guarantee it won't disappoint." Read entire review here: Reviewing my Daughter's Favourite Games
BGG Conrad (kamchatka): "Hilarious, nonsensical Korean dexterity game where you're trying to hit the bark off the a tree that's made of these disks with the bark stuck into slots. (Because of course lumberjacks only really want the bark...) You get two tries (toc toc!) per turn, and a point for every piece of bark you get, and lose 5 points for every piece of the tree's core that gets knocked off. It's a really simple, hilarious closer that I can see wanting to play over and over, particularly with 2p - with more I can imagine it being (amazingly) less strategic. As it stands you sort of want to hit some stability into the core with your first toc and dislodge bark with the second, but there are times when you can only do one or the other, Jenga-like. I don't always go in for this kind of thing, but Toc Toc Woodman's a lot of fun. "
