The rules of Ki o Rahi differ slightly from region to region and this brings a unique aspect to the sport.  When travelling to another region you must become familiar with their rules in order to try and beat them at their 'own game'.  

However at some competitions the teams meet on the field to Tatū or agree on the rules to be played for that specific game.  Common areas that may be discussed at the Tatū include number of Kaitiaki, number of Taniwha players allowed in Te Roto and whether or not Ki oma players can catch the ball whilst jumping above Te Roto,
