Hanamikoji - Game overview
Game designer: Kota Nakayama
Hanamikoji is a quick-playing card game designed by Kota Nakayama.
Hanamikoji is the most famous geisha street in the old capital of Japan.
In Hanamikoji, players compete to get the favours of 7 geishas.
To do so, they give object cards to the geishas who in turn give their favour to the most generous player.
The player who manages to get 11 charm points (or if not possible the favours of 4 geishas) wins the game.
Players only play one of four actions on their turn: Secret, Concealment, Gift, Competition.
Once all actions have been played, the round is over and if neither player has won, another round is played.
Hanamikoji is a subtle game where deduction and bluff play their part.
