Hanabi, named for the Japanese word for 'fireworks' and consisting of the ideograms Flower and Fire, is a cooperative card game in which players try to create the perfect fireworks show by building all five fireworks (white, red, blue, yellow and green). Players build the fireworks by placing cards of each color in the right order.

The Hanabi card deck consists of five different colors of cards, numbered 1-5 in each color. For each color, the players try to build a row in the correct order from 1-5. Sounds easy, right? Well, not quite as in Hanabi you don't get to see your own cards: you have to 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.

Note: This German version of Hanabi by AbacusSpiele has been imported. It's components and card illustrations are different. There is no necessary in-game text that requires translation. An English copy of the rules will be provided.
