“Chess is the sleeping giant of the sports/entertainment world… In the U.S., more people play chess than tennis and golf, combined!”

Steve Martin, CEO of M&C Saatchi Sports – Aug, 2012 

THE CHESS MARKET TODAY

Even though Chess is a giant game with HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS  of paying spectators, it’s universally recognised as the worlds worst spectator sport… It doesn’t make it’s players the money they deserve, even though it’s the most popular game in the world…

Chess’s top players should be cleaning up, just like in Tennis, Golf and Football. It should be a true spectator sport with a line up of characters capturing it’s spectators imaginations… but it promotors weren’t able to get it to those levels and they probably never will.

ENTER TARKCOIN & TARKA

TarkCoin fixes the first big issue for Chess players… It’s a financial reward for everyone playing Tarka or Chess and it’s structured to be incredibly high yielding when played professionally.

… And Tarka fixes the other one… It’s the arrival of the most important missing link in Chess… It’s a true spectator sport, Chess 2.0… bigger, bolder and downright thrilling. Not just exciting to watch, it’s  incredibly fun to play.

A driven creator and business manager with a sound understanding in multifaceted marketing and a deep passion for PlayTarka. Eric has owned and managed companies in many industries over the years. From Youngheart Productions, (the company that created the film Ferngully) to Arts Village (an international award winning tourism development in Fiji) where he took over an abandoned business and grew it  into a profitable multi million dollar  business in 2.5 years.

He has built several businesses from the ground up and aims for PlayTarka to be the shinning jewel in an already accomplished career. He has assembled an exceptional team around this project and is providing them with the guidance and inspiration needed for Tarka to be a huge success.

Veronika Ershova

Co-Founder & Creative Director

Veronika started her working career as a financial adviser and investment manager, she met with huge success in the field and regularly provided her clients with returns in excess of 150% per annum, but she craved for something more, a creative outlet to satisfy the artist within.

One day she quit as a financial adviser and became a photographer/videographer (she shoots all our still and video). She then travelled the world with 2 children in tow and created stunning imagery for an ever growing client list. When she saw Tarka, not only did she see the beauty of the game, but also the chance to for herself to marry the artist and business women within and become a huge asset for us. She is now a key member of our team and deeply committed to the success of Tarka.

Dave Mills

Co-Founder,  Creator of Tarka, Teacher

David is our game inventor. He has put 20 years of love and effort into perfecting a game that truly is an evolution of Chess. Many people will tell you that chess could never be improved, and up until now it really has been the truth, but Dave’s invention has changed this and everyone who has ever played the game will testify to this game being a giant leap forward.

Dave is a humble man, even a bit shy (part of the reason he took 20 years to release this extraordinary game) he does not claim to be an exceptional player, but rather takes the role of teacher and mentor deeply to heart. He has a genuine desire to see the people who take up Tarka have a lot of fun playing the game and he believes with absolute certainty that, just as Chess improves your strategic thinking, Tarka amplifies this effect, as the evolution of that game.

For Magnus, Tarka is a culmination of all of us and then something else… Something more!
