About Hanafuda Flash

Hanafuda Flash is a flash version of the traditional Japanese card game Hanafuda, as the name suggests. Two players throw and take cards to/from each other in this card game to form a set of cards from a "suit." There are several suits, each with its own set of points based on the cards you've collected. This game will take some practice to master, but once you do, you'll find that it's a lot of fun because of how quickly it starts and ends.

 It is a solitaire game and is mainly played by women in Japan. Hanafuda is also known as ‘wailele’ in Hawaii and the ‘piatnik’ in the Czech Republic and Poland. Recently, it has gained popularity in the West and especially in the US, as it is a fun and easy card game that can be played by anyone regardless of their skill level.

It is a simple deck of 52 cards, but it is one of the most popular card games in Japan. The name “hanafuda” means “flower cards” in Japanese. Hanafuda is usually played by two people, with a deck of 52 cards. The goal is to be the first to run out of cards, so that only your partner remains. It is a simple strategy game, but one that requires a lot of concentration. There are many versions of Hanafuda, and you can learn about as many of them as you want. 

How to play the game

In the bottom row, you have eight cards. On your turn, you should discard one of them such that the card you choose and one of the eight cards in the middle area are matched. If there are no matches, the card you choose will stay in the center.

The matched cards lead to your card, which is situated in the bottom right corner. When you get any kind of Yaku, you win. You can announce "Koi Koi" at this moment to continue going further and aiming for more Yaku for more points.
