KATATU WINS Board Game of the Year 2012!
KATATU, the new game from Curtlin Toys and Games, has just won the prestigious '2012 Toy Awards' BOARD GAME OF THE YEAR from Creative Child Magazine.
The game is very easy to learn and similar to 'Tic-Tac-Toe' but is preticated on forming a 'KATATU MILL' (achieving 'three(s) in a row' ) and then capturing one of your opponents pieces upon doing so. The game features 12 magnetic Bees and Grasshoppers (cute bugs) as playing pieces and is played on a flat colorful 'Pyramid' looking game board. KATATU also features a 'Bug Bag' to store your magnetic playing pieces (when not in play) making the game easy to pack and therefore portable and can be virtually played anywhere.
Variations of KATATU has been taught as a means to enlighten and teach children for many centuries and is rich in history as an eduactional tool. Paul also makes point that the game award was voted on by parents, teachers and educatiors that take gaming and learning as serious business and this game has never really traveled to Western cultures here in America until now. Ask for it at your local toy and hobby stores.
