Jump to: navigation, search

Hawaiian-style Koi-Koi — also known as Sakura or Higo-Bana — is played using Hanafuda cards (playing cards of Japanese origin) and can be played with individual players or between teams with two to seven people. The rules of this variant, which is played in Hawaii, are slightly different from traditional Koi-Koi.

How to win[edit]

  • Outscore the other player(s)/team(s) by taking:
    • More individual point cards than your opponent(s);
    • More yaku sets than your opponent(s).

Dealing the cards[edit]

Number of players Cards in hand Cards face up
2 10 8
3 7 6
4 5 8
5 4 8
6 3 12
7 3 6

Note: when dealing, deal half of the face up cards first, then half of the “Cards in hand” to each player, then finish dealing the rest of the face up cards and in-hand cards. This will help randomize the “hard-to-shuffle” deck.

Scoring[edit]

Based on the cards you’ve claimed:

  • Award yourself 5-20 points for each point card that you’ve captured, based on the values in the next section

Adjusted by the cards your opponents have claimed:

  • Deduct 50 points from your total score for each yaku that they captured
