“I will tell you a riddle.”
“What is it?”
If you can’t get the answer to your partner’s riddle, you have to ‘buy’ it (kea e reka).
This means that you have to give your partner a riddle, and if they cannot answer your riddle correctly, they have to tell you the answer to theirs.
If they can answer yours correctly, you give them another one until they can’t guess your riddle.
Then at last, you finally get the answer to their riddle.
