Ogoola Karuta Poetry Game is based on the traditional Japanese poetry game called Ogura Hyakunin-isshu Utakaruta.
We believe that a game that has been played for over 400 years in Japan must be really special. So, for the first time in history, we made the game in English, German and in Swedish! This ancient game will contribute to a better understanding between different cultures and will help share the beautiful poems written in different countries. Needless to say, you can learn languages by having fun playing!
So what is this game about?
This game is about listening and finding FAST what you are listening to in the cards you will pick. Grab the correct cards before the others do in order to win! Known as an intellectual martial arts game in Japan. The cards have famous poetry quotes on them but no prior knowledge is needed!
