We have arrived at an unprecedented moment in human history in which it is for the first time possible to actually bring this vision into being, within our families, our communities, our places of work and worship, our regions, our nations and across the continents. Cohado is an isiZulu word meaning the long sustainable view - it is the broken pieces coming together. Cohado is the plan and the architecture to enact UBUNTU, the Zulu understanding that we are responsible for each other's wellbeing. We understand that we are all connected – we are ONE.
We can utilize our resources, our connections, our energy, our voices and our power to usher in this age of relationship, understanding and connectedness. Of course, we cannot do this alone. We need support, we need community, we need each other. We also need flexible and powerful tools to aid in this global relief effort. Cohado is offered for this purpose. Experience this gentle power tool…
If Chess & Go are The Battles of The Bands, then Cohado is a Jazz/Orchestra/Cypher Synthesis. Most games of strategy are built on the societal notions of competition. This is built on the communal roots of collaboration, & that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

I’m very empowered by all Cohado has to offer, in terms of social enjoyment and inclusion, but on a much deeper level, human interaction and what can happen when everyone collaborates together for benefit of the whole. It is something everyone can connect with and it’s a mechanism that can be applied to any facet of life while also being a form of entertainment and joy! I’m really excited to watch how Cohado grows! Thank you so much for bringing this idea into creation! It will change the world to be a better place for all!

Cohado is an elegant game that gives people the experience of connection and cooperation. There are two guiding principles: to maximize assets in the community and to minimize waste. The pieces have an ancient, inevitable feel. I just played this game last night and am excited for the designer, Paulo Gregory, who is launching a Kickstart campaign soon to expand production and get it out there. Cohado is in the same league as the Asian game Go, or chess – simple pieces, infinite strategies and varieties, yet as easy to get started as dominoes. In addition to the cast pieces, they are developing an app and an online version. This is going to sweep the globe. Get in on it!
