Kabufuda deck

Kabufuda (株札) are Japanese playing cards used for gambling games such as Oicho-Kabu and Tehonbiki.

Kabufuda cards, like the related hanafuda ("flower cards") are smaller and stiffer than Western playing cards. A deck contains 40 cards, with designs representing the numbers 1 through 10. There are four cards for each number.

The object of most kabufuda games is to get a total closest to nine. In Tehonbiki, the player tries to guess which number from 1 to 6 the dealer has selected.[1]
