Synonyms of "Partake" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between partake in and take part in ?
A: In some contexts the meaning is the same, along with "participate in." However, I think "partake" in this meaning refers to more abstract concepts or experiences. "To partake in the fun." "To partake of the good life." "To partake in the mischief." It would sound awkward to say, for example, "I will partake in the basketball game," "I will partake of the meeting."

"Partake" is much less common than "take part" and "participate."

"Partake in/of" can also mean "to share a portion of."
"Each of us is buying a lottery ticket, and if any one of us wins, we'll each partake of the money." ("Participate" and "take part" don't work here.)
"My colleagues invited me to partake in their dinner." ("Participate" and "take part" work here, but the meaning is a little different, "to attend their dinner." "Partake in their dinner" means specifically "to eat some of their dinner.")

This is a difficult one, with small nuances of meaning and usage.
