Hanabi - named for the Japanese word for "fireworks" - 花火 - consisting of the ideograms "Fire" and "Flower" respectively - is a cooperative game in which players try to create the perfect fireworks show. Trouble is, it's dark out, so you can't really see what you are working with! Each player holds their cards so that only the other players can see them. They must give each other vital information and remember all the information in order to choose which cards to play. Helping each other play the right cards at the right time is the key to creating an unforgettable show and avoiding being booed by the audience!
Hanabi is a card game designed by Antoine Bauza - the popular designer of the award-winning 7 Wonders.
