Popular Edugames bought by Papawai Media February 15 2019
Papawai Media is thrilled to announce that we have bought Edugames – a fabulous family of games created in New Zealand for New Zealander’s and visitors alike. We think that the Edugames family are a perfect fit for Papawai and a natural complement for our books. We’ve even changed our name from Papawai Press to Papawai Media to reflect the addition of Edugames to our catalogue.
We are really excited to have these games in our catalogue.
Edugames was started in Devonport by 2006 by David and Margaret Allis to create, manufacture and distribute educational games in New Zealand and overseas.
Kiwi Quiz was the first exciting game they created, and has been hugely popular. Kiwi Quiz won the Teachers Choice Award in 2011 and the Children’s Choice Award in 2010 (NZ Games Association). Kiwi Quiz was soon followed by two other great educational games, Time Zone, and Brit Quiz.
These were soon followed by a travel game called Discover NZ, packed with beautiful photos of New Zealand and quiz questions for the whole family. Discover NZ has been popular in retail stores around New Zealand because its beautiful photos & small size make it the perfect car journey game or family gift. In 2011, Discover NZ was translated into Māori language (Discover NZ | Mōkihi Haere).
In 2011, Discover Wildlife was released. With its beautiful photos and hundreds of quiz questions, Discover Wildlife is a great game for families and classrooms. It’s compact size also makes it the perfect travel game.
