Hanabi – named for the Japanese word for "fireworks" and consisting of the ideograms "Flower" and "Fire" – is a cooperative game in which players try to create the perfect fireworks show by placing the cards on the table in the right order.

The card deck consists of five different colors of cards, numbered 1-5 in each color. For each color, the players try to place a row in the correct order from 1-5. Sounds easy, right? Well, not quite as in this game you hold your cards so that they're visible only to other players. To assist other players in playing a card, you must give them hints regarding the numbers or the colors of their cards. Players must act as a team to avoid errors and to finish the fireworks display before they run out of cards.

Hanabi is a fantastic mind-bending co-op game for everyone Review by Jarrod
Few games make you think quite so differently as Hanabi.

In this beautiful co-op game, you try to play cards of the right colours and numbers in order to create the most spectacular fireworks display you can.

What makes Hanabi special, though, is that you hold your cards facing away from you, so you can see everyone's cards but your own. This mechanic combined with the limited information you can provide to other players makes for a fascinating co-op experience.

You're constantly trying to work out what cards you're holding, whether to discard something so the team can reclaim a token that allows information to be given, or risk playing a card when you don't quite know what colour or number that card is.

Hearing about Hanabi is one thing, but playing it is unlike anything else. It's a fun, fascinating, mind-bending experience that will get you thinking differently than any other card game. It rewires your brain as you play, and the joy of interpreting the information you've been given and the cards you can see in everyone else's hands, then playing a card that perfectly in sequence - that joy is fantastic, and shared by everyone at the table.

If this game wasn't great enough already, there are several variants in the short rulebook, and even an extra suit of cards to really mix things up.

Hanabi is a game anyone can pick up and play and a game everyone should have in their collection. (Posted on 28/05/2015)
