John, I don't think that Robert is disputing that the Maoriori are the indigenous people of the Chatham Islands- he is reacting against the idea that they had settled New Zealand before the Maori arrived. Richard's information comes from a book written by a neo-Nazi ex-con "new age" writer. This would explain Robert's strong reaction. Let's please not rate games we haven't played, and continue the conversation at:[email protected]@.1dd065de/108

Dear Robert, the Moriori are NOT a myth, as anyone who is up-to-date with current research into NZ history could tell you. At the very least, you could remember that google is your friend:

Richard, what a load of BS! The Moriori are a MYTH created by the pakeha to undermine the Maori. What will you do next, rate Twilight Struggle poorly because the aliens from outer space aren't included? You never even played the game! The Kaimanawa wall is a natural formation, that you've never been to- because it's in the North Island, not the South! The conflicts between the tribes is EXACTLY what this game simulates- and yet you rate it poorly because of your wacko theories that you think have been ignored- all because of two words in parenthesis in the introduction. I look forward to this game, and will rate it again AFTER it comes out. I hope the GMT moderators delete your post- and then delete mine.

Uh, "uninhabited islands"? What about the Wai-ta-hanui (Moriori)? Yes, they were pacifists, but they apparently did fight at first (until they were overrun, enslaved, or just eaten by the Maori), and they are the ones said to have built the big wall (Kaimanawa Wall) on South Island. There were a LOT of them there, over 200 tribes, when the Maori arrived to find this movable feast. It's another significant factor that I think should be included as they would have still been there in significant numbers in 1250.

Maori was previously in P500 but did not reach its P500 goal in the first UGG campaign. So why is UGG launching another P500 campaign?

Maori, Command & Strategy 9 has significant changes compared to its first version Maori, Cannibals at War.

Maori, Command & Strategy 9, is card driven and area based. The 110 different cards can by played as operations or events. The old version was a good game, but the card driven version is just better. Each game is different, so the replay value has been increased.

Sample Cards:



The time: about 1250 AD.

The place: the Polynesian islands of Aotearoa, now known as New Zealand.
The clan chiefs have always struggled for control of your islands, since they were first discovered (totally uninhabited) several generations ago. But now, population pressures have added new impetus to these clashes, and the traditional divisions of North Island are ready to collapse into the chaos of war. Will you succeed in becoming New Zealand's sole chieftain? Or will you and your warriors be on the menu of your opponent's victory celebration?

Maori  is...
a game for one to four players, of clan warfare typical in Polynesia before European contact. Players build war canoes and train warriors (including the elite Royal Guard) to create a force to strike at their adversaries, while protecting or even fortifying their home village. The player is represented on the board as the Head Chieftain- if this unit is killed, the game is lost. Based on the same game system as 3W's "Tahiti", (published in 1994), "Maori, Cannibals at War" is a completely independent new game.

Each turn of the game represents two weeks of real time.
Each hexagon on the game board spans 6 statute miles.
Special rules for solitaire play are included.


From left to right:

Paramount Chief, Tohunga (shaman), Village, Militia, Warriors, Full Pa, Big Log, Moa, Forest Depleted.

Sample Counters
of the playtest Version. Final graphics will differ.
