Karuta in English - Ogoola Karuta

Challenge your friends and your mind with a game of Ogoola Karuta

Based on the ancient Japanese karuta poetry game.

The Ogoola Karuta card 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 something really special. So, for the first time in history, we made the game in English, German and Swedish! Experience a bit of Japanese culture and the world of poetry through karuta! And trust us, you will have fun!

So what is this game about? This game is about listening and finding FAST what you are listening to, in the playing cards. Grab the correct card before your competitors in order to win! Known as an intellectual martial arts game in Japan. The cards have famous English poetry quotes on them but no prior knowledge is needed!
