Do you know the "Hanafuda", a traditional Japanese card game? Recently, due to the help of an anime film and its famous characters, Hanafuda has been drawn people's attention gradually. Maybe you've watch it, but don't know its specific rules. So I'd like to introduce the Hanafuda and its gameplay to such people.

After all, the Hanafuda is characterized by its traditional Japanese patterns from January to December, which are the natural scenery corresponding to each month, like plum blossom, sakura, rain and so on. There are 4 cards corresponding to each month.

The specific pattern combination in the Hanafuda (see the manual for details!) is called "Yaku". For each combination of "yaku", the points they represents are also different, so how to get these patterns together is the key for winning and losing!

There are a total of 48 cards in the Hanafuda, which are divided into three types: te-fuda, ba-fuda and yama-fuda, and deal randomly.

At first glance, it is difficult to play the Hanafuda, but you can read the manual before combining the card in the same month with ""yaku"", then you will get started quickly! So in this winter, be sure to play the Hanafuda with your friends or family!
