Hanafuda with a friendly face

Kiki's Koi-Koi offers a classic Japanese card game with bright graphics, an intuitive interface, and just the right balance of strategy and luck to pass the time away. Oh, and it stars a fish.

Koi-Koi is a simple two-player card game played with the colorful Japanese cards known as Hanafuda. Match cards from your hand to those on the table to make sets or call "Koi-Koi" to press your luck for more points. But watch out! Your opponent may score bonus points from your risk-taking. How far are you willing to test the fates?

Is this your first time playing Koi-Koi? Kiki's got you covered. She can walk you through a full hand of play and show you the ropes. Or if you'd prefer to dive in, skip the tutorial and start up a game against Kiki herself. She'll show you which cards you can match, getting you on your feet instantly.

Or perhaps you're a seasoned pro. Well, Kiki's been training for a long time, waiting for this day to arrive. She's ready to play and can't wait for you to step up to the table. Do you have what it takes to defeat the reigning Fish League champion? (That's what Kiki calls herself, by the way.)

If you've got a friend with you, the two of you can play against each other with just one device. Pass the game back and forth and see who's the real Koi-Koi Master.

- "This app helped me to master Hanafuda. You won't be disappointed."
- "This game is by far the best way of getting into and learning the game. I've learned more in 2 rounds on this game then I have in all the other things before this."
- "A more challenging alternative to simple, mindless card games like solitaire."

Need online multiplayer

I’m new to Koi-Koi. Having played it in Yakuza and have Koi-Koi Japan (cost a couple bucks and has online multiplayer mode) on Steam. I was hooked so I was looking for a mobile version.

This game’s UI is well designed. The AI seems to be good on hard. However, there is no sound for me. I tried restarting my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling the app but still no sound. Yes, I can listen to music while playing but part of the experience is for the game’s music to pump up when you choose to Koi-Koi.

For a game like this to not have online play feels very incomplete. It does have a local 2 player mode using the one phone.

Hi there! Thanks so much for playing Kiki. Glad to hear you've liked the game so far, but sorry to hear you're having audio trouble. Would you mind emailing what device/iOS version you're using to so we can try to fix that up for you? Hope you're doing well. Have a great day!

Great way to learn!

My son has a deck of Hanafuda cards. Written Koi-Koi instructions are okay but not quite clear to a newbie. This game is awesome at showing you how to play! However, the ability to flip the phone and show what you have for sets (someone else mentioned this) doesn’t appear to be happening for me. It would be nice to have a zoomed image of what I have and maybe month suits in the help
menu or somewhere handy. Either way, I am learning how to play! Just repetitively trying will get your brain recognizing the sets. It’s very fun. I’m glad I got this game. I would love to see more Hanafuda games like this, with an awesome tutorial. Keep up the awesome work guys! I think it’s wonderful to bring this game to more people by having an app like this that teaches and makes it fun.

Hi there! Thanks for the kind words. We're glad to hear you're enjoying Kiki.

Ah, yes. We did move the set reference to a new place when 2.0 came out. It's now accessible by tapping the button with the cards/question mark on the left side of the game. But we're always looking for things to improve. So, I'll make a note and see if we can make it even better in the future!

Thanks again for playing. If you ever need anything or have any questions, email us at or check out our website. Hope you're doing well. Have a great day!

Fun Card Game

I've just recently got Nintendo hanafurda cards and the instructions that came with the deck left me with a lot of questions.

This app has been very helpful in teaching me how to play koi-koi. What struck me the most about this app is that is has a very simple but cute user interface for it. During my search for a koi-koi app, I was afraid of being stuck with something that had the quality of a flash game, but this game is exactly what I expect from a good quality app.

The game also lets you know what combos you are close to collecting and if you flip your ipad/ipod over it'll showcase the various combos you can collect in case you forget.

I have found using this app for multiplayer very useful as well, for those times when my sister and I want to play but we don't want to get the cards out. After you complete your turn, a window pops up displaying the cards you've collected/flipped over and a message saying to pass it to the other player. That way you both can't see each other's cards.
