In Hawaiian, Holoholo means to travel. Our Holoholo Papamū is perfect for taking anywhere, anytime, to play a game of Kōnane. We have created this innovative design to play Kōnane right with over ten years of research, eliminating common mistakes on wooden boards. The black and white holes are marked so students can play right all the time.

Everything you'll need is in our `ili bag. The marbles and rule card makes it convenient to tuck in your bag or glove compartment of your car. If it's a little breezy outside, there is plenty of room for four to six 3/4 sized washers. The Holoholo Papamū also comes in five fun colors for everyone in your family.

Growing up in Hawai'i, going to the beach was a constant activity. I remember spending all day at the beach. I remember my Dad pounding these phrases into my head. "Never turn your back to the ocean" and "take only what you need." These phrases are suitable for describing Kōnane. Never turn your back; it means to respect the game and your opponent and to pay attention. Taking only what you need is a critical lesson in Kōnane. If you take that second piece just because it's there, you are not playing Kōnane and putting yourself at a significant disadvantage. But if you are taking that second piece because it's part of your strategy, you are playing well.
