Nāwai i kore kupu, ka matomato te tupu!
From reo zero to kōrero hero!
Ko KAUPAPA te papa kēmu mā Aotearoa e reorua ana. KAUPAPA is the board game for a bilingual Aotearoa.
E 900 ōna kupu, mai i te rākau ki te rangatira, ā, mā KAUPAPA e tino ngahau ai te noho, e whakawhānui ai hoki tō punakupu Māori i te wā kotahi!
With 900 words spanning rākau to rangatira, KAUPAPA is your chance to have hysterical fun, use your reo and expand your Māori vocabulary at once! It is a word description game that can be played at any level - beginners can use it to learn new words, and fluent speakers can create a fast-paced, playful Māori language immersion environment.
Me pēhea te tākaro? I tētahi meneti kotahi, whakamāramahia ngā kupu katoa ka taea ki ō hoamahi. Ka tere ake te koke a tō rōpū i te papa kia nui ake ngā kupu e whakamāramahia ana. Kawea ake ngā mānuka a Māui i a koe e haere ana! Ko te rōpū ka tae tuatahi ki te papariki o TOA te toa o te kēmu.
How to play? In one minute, describe as many words as possible to your teammates. The more words you describe, the faster your team advances across the board. Rise to Māui’s challenges along the way! The first team to reach the TOA (champion) tile wins the game.
KAUPAPA for beginners: KAUPAPA can be played by anyone starting to learn te reo. If you are at the kākano (beginners) stage of learning, you can use actions, sound effects and English words to describe the word on the card. English definitions are provided on Kupu (word) cards.
