"Hanafuda" is a traditional Japanese card game.

In Koi Koi, you compete to snatch up cards that will allow you to win by forming Yaku, or card combinations, before your opponent does.
If you form a Yaku, you can aim for even more points by calling "Koi Koi" and continuing the game. I hope you'll try this simple, but fiercely competitive game of strategy.

Koi-Koi Japan is a card game and it's a variant of the Japanese card game Hanafuda. It is about collecting certain cards which together result in a combination. Depending on how many cards the combination contains and how difficult it is to get these, the individual combinations give different points. Each player starts with 30 points. Once you have a combination together you can either end the round and steal the opponent points or you can say Koi-Koi and continue. This gives you the chance to get more combinations and get more points. Like all card games, Koi-Koi is in part a gamble. If you do not get any matching cards and the opponent does, the defeat is almost certain. Only the AI, which can sometimes be quite stupid can help. The player who has the most points after 6 rounds (or 12, depending on the setting) or the player who makes it before the last round will have the points of his opponent to zero. The music is pleasant and fits beautifully to the Japanese atmosphere. The same applies to the visual style, which are also very authentic, as far as I can judge. Overall, it's a good game and I can recommend to anyone who likes card games. It is a pity, however, that there is no way to play the game in multiplayer.
