The Kakapo: Buddy & Party is a cooperative game that combines trick-taking and puzzles. Players become members of "KAKAPO," a special organization of bird conservation groups and all members work together to clear the given mission. If you can surround the target bird with this, the mission will be successful. However, the selection and placement of puzzle pieces may not always go as planned because the birds are very sensitive to human voices, so conversational communication is limited in this game.
Players are unable to exchange information about each other's cards or which puzzle pieces to select, and must accomplish the common goal of completing the mission.
