World´s first Karuta using poetry written in English!
This game is an English version of the Japanese poetry game called Karuta, using carefully selected English, American, Irish and Scottish poetry quotations. These 100 poems were written from 1340-2015. Some of the poets included in this edition are Marlowe, Shakespeare, Herrick, Keats, Byron, Blake, Tennyson, Whitman, Houseman, HD, Moore, Frost, Eliot, Dickinson, Plath, Bishop, Heaney, Merwin, Dove and Hirshfield. This karuta does not use the translation of the original Japanese Hyakuninisshu poems.
Karuta is a game about listening and finding FAST what you are listening to in the cards you will pick. To begin, a reader is chosen or a reader app will be used to read the poetry quotes on the reading cards aloud. Players listen and search for the playing card with the second part of the quote being read aloud. Grab the correct cards FAST 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!
This complete version of the classic and modern poems written in English contains 100 reading cards, 100 playing cards and a poetry book (instructions, rules, history of the game and the 100 poetry quotes in its original form ).
A free "reader app" is available on Googleplay and Playstore if you want a reader app that takes the role of the reader of the game. The poems on the reading cards are read by actress and singer Myrra Malmberg. The iOS reader app is free. Please contact us for a promo code regarding the android app.
