Nāwai i kore kupu, ka matomato te tupu!

Ko KAUPAPA te papa kēmu mā Aotearoa e reorua ana.
From reo zero to kōrero hero!
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.

Kei roto: 1 te Papa Kēmu • 150 ngā kāri Kupu • 12 ngā kāri Māui • 3 ngā kāri Tūtohu • 3 ngā waka Rōpū • 1 te Tohuwā • 1 te pukatohu Kēmu • 1 te Kapa

Mean kēmu

Easy to play and easy to adapt for different level learners. When it's my youngest guessing, we speak with only a few Māori words, but for my eldest, we do the whole thing in Te Reo.

Ratana-Skipper Whanau experience

We absolutely love this Kaupapa Maori Board-game, it is going to be so helpful for me and my whanau in our te Reo and Matauranga Māori journey of learning. Love seeing the revitalisation of our culture with all these wonderful and ingenious products coming out.
