Fil-Am Ako friend, Norman de los Santos describes Baybayin Ukyabít as a radical Filipino alphasyllabary card game, where you learn to use Baybayin script characters to build simple two-syllable Tagalog words. Ukyabít is a revolutionary new and fun approach to word puzzle card games and language learning.
ukyabít – a Filipino (Tagalog) word that means; scramble, climb up laboriously.
Mix and stack cards up!
This is a radical Filipino alphasyllabary card game where you learn to use Baybayin script characters (a.k.a. Alibata) to build simple two-syllable Tagalog words.
NOTE: Players are required have a basic understanding of the Filipino language, an adequate Tagalog vocabulary (or a Filipino dictionary), and a basic knowledge of theBaybayin writing system.
This game dramatically improves your Baybayin character recognition and script reading comprehension as well as understanding Tagalog word syllabary and the ancestral Filipino’s method of writing. Ukyabít is a revolutionary new and fun approach to word puzzle card games and language learning.
This sounds like a great game to me and you can brush up on your Tagalog and Baybayin skills. Baybayin Ukyabít is available for download at The Game Crafter for only $19.99. By purchasing this game, not only do you get to learn and practice your Baybayin, you are also supporting the Anak Bathala cause. Anak Bathala is a multifaceted project that aims to promote a positive global image and awareness of the Filipino heritage and culture by sharing our unique customs, traditions, stories, and mythologies through modern, digital, and conventional media.
