- How Hanabi Works
- Hanabi is a cooperative card game based on logic and deduction. There is a deck of 50 cards
- comprising of 5 colors and numbers 1 through 5. The goal is to play out 1 through 5 for each
- color in order. The twist is that each player can see everyone else's cards but not their own.
- On each player's turn, they can choose to do one of three things:
- 1) Play a card
- A player can pick a card from their hand and attempt to play it. They do not need to know
- exactly what the card is. If it's the next card for any of the five colors, it gets
- played onto that pile. If the card is not playable, then it goes to the discard pile as
- if it were discarded, but the team does not get a clue and gets a strike. If the team
- gets 3 strikes, they immediately lose and score 0 points. Additionally, successfully
- playing a 5 gives the team an additional clue.
- 2) Discard a card
- A player can pick a card from their hand and discard it. The card goes to the discard pile
- and the team gets an additional clue. You cannot discard if the team is at 8 clues.
- 3) Give a clue
- A player can spend a clue to give information to another player. They choose a player and
- either a number or a color, and then tell that player about all cards of that number or color.
- A clue that matches no cards is not allowed.
- For example, if a player's hand is Red 1, Red 3, Blue 3, Green 4, then the valid clues are
- * The first two cards are red.
- * The third card is blue.
- * The fourth card is green.
- * The first card is a 1.
- * The middle two cards are 3s.
- * The fourth card is a 4.
- The team starts with 8 clues.
- The Deck
- The basic deck consists of 50 cards. There are 5 colors, and each color has three 1s, two 2s,
- two 3s, two 4s, and one 5. Notice that if you discard all of the copies of a card then you
- can no longer score the perfect 25.
- The End of the Game
- The end of the game is triggered when the last card of the deck is drawn. Once that occurs,
- each player including the player who drew the last card gets one more turn. So the bottom
- card of the deck is able to be played, but nothing is able to be played on top of it.
- If the team gets to the end of the game successfully, they get one point for each card
- that they successfully played. Generally newer players will take some time before they
- reach the top scores, while experienced players will be aiming for the perfect score.
- There are a few variations that change the difficulty of the game.
- * A 60 card deck with 6 colors instead of 5. This generally makes the game a bit easier.
- * A 55 card deck with 6 colors where the new color has only one copy of each card. This
- is a quite difficult variation and more luck dependent as well.
- * A 60 card deck with a sixth "rainbow" suit that is played separately but clued as all
- colors. This is harder than the base game, but not any more luck dependent.
