Late December 2013, after long days and nights spent in his workshop, Danish carpenter Mikkel Bertelsen had something truly unique in his hands- a wooden tabletop game with magnets which one steers under the board. Just in time for the holidays, he made a few copies of the game as Christmas presents for some of his friends.
Soon after, the word spread through the country and orders from individuals, cafes, bars, and offices started to pour in. The following year, Mikkel built more than 3,000 copies of the game by hand in his garage. KLASK has been a smash success ever since!
KLASK has a worldwide following with official tournaments being held at 16 different countries leading to the World Championship tournament in Helsinki, Finland. Along with official tournaments; bars, breweries, game stores and clubs across the world have started running their own KLASK events.
From a small workshop in Denmark to worldwide distribution, KLASK has become an award-winning global phenomenon.
