TAKARO 2018

AREPA Gamers Club have partnered with Porirua City Council to create TAKARO 2018: an event during Te Wiki o te Reo Māori that is Aotearoa's first ever Te Reo Māori gaming event. 

This will be on the 15th of September at City Hub in Porirua's city centre and aims to celebrate Maori culture and the preservation of its language. 

TAKARO 2018 will have games for the entire family to play, such as Sports, Mario, Virtual Reality and a very unique Waka Fishing VR Experience.

We will also be encouraging the use of Te Reo Māori, and there will also be plenty of spot prizes up for grabs and a Big Major Prize to be announced. 

There will also be Hangi provided by Ngāti Toa. 

The best part is that all of this is FREE!!!


While Arepa is a commercial business, it also sees the importance of giving back to its community. Arepa is a strong advocate for cultural appreciation and the preservation of our cultural heritage. 

With assistance from local businesses like Harvey Normans Porirua, Ngati Toa, Polytronik's and Porirua City Council we have been able to provide this event to the community.

Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you all at TAKARO 2018!!!
