Totika Kohatu - Woods Rocks Stacking Balance Game

Solve It! Think Out of the Box

Totika Kohatu is a traditional Maori competition played by stacking stones as high as possible on beaches, near rivers or other places with rocks.  Totika Kohatu is a tabletop wood rock stacking game that will determine, once and for all, who has the steadiest hand and nerves of steel. Knock the stack over on your turn and lose that round of play.   

Four card decks, each with over 150 questions, including Self Esteem, Life Skills and Anger for ages 8 and up plus the Early Childhood Social Emotional deck for ages 4-7.  The drawstring game bag holds all four decks, the 16 Kohatu stones plus a game dice.  Choking hazard not appropriate for under age 3.

  • Players take turns rolling the die and balancing one rock of the rolled color on top of the stack. Knock over the stack and lose that round of play. Stack the last rock and win. Win a round by successfully stacking the 16th stone.  Sounds easy until everyone realizes stacking all 16 stones is nearly impossible but believe us, it’s possible. Don’t give up. Keep practicing and build your skills. 
  • Although it looks simple at first, the difficulty of stacking all 16 rocks, stones and gems becomes apparent and players are gradually mesmerized by the surprising height of the stack, much more mindful of their movement around the table as the stack grows taller and excitement builds.
  • Totika Kohatu wood rocks are irresistible and they are going grab and hold the attention of children, teens and adults. No set up and each round is quick, 3-5 minutes without the question cards and 5-15 minutes when using question cards. Four card decks, each with over 150 questions, including Self Esteem, Life Skills and Anger for ages 8 and up plus the Early Childhood Social Emotional deck for ages 4-7.
  • Includes: The drawstring game bag holds all four decks, the 16 Kohatu stones: 4 large stones, 8 medium rocks, 4 small gems and plus a game dice.  Choking hazard not appropriate for under age 3.
