Best hanafuda/koi koi app available.

I've been a fan of hanafuda cards and koi koi for years and this is the best app available for the game. The game itself isn't western so most of the terms are in Japanese, therefore saying that "it isn't in English" isn't a legitimate critique.

This app makes learning the different matches easy by automatically grouping them together when claimed as well as by telling you which cards in your hand have available matches. Of course mastering the game takes more than the app can teach, but by doing that it can instill a great sense of accomplishment when you finally overcome the different CPU difficulties.

Hanafuda fun

A simple and fun way to play hanafuda even if you are a beginner. With the ability to have the game help you fined which matches you can make and auto drag them together in groups for point count you can learn from scratch and begin to understand the game even with no back ground.

The only problem I seem to have is when I play online and my opponent or I lose signal. However the points are returned to you and if you win then u also get a small bonus.

Addicted, but was happier before recent update

My Japanese mother-in-law got me hooked on this card game, and I was elated to find this app! However, I do not read Japanese, and the recent update changed many of the formerly English labels to Japanese. Also, all of the ads that pop up are now in Japanese, which can make it difficult to know where to click to cancel them. Other than that, it's still awesome!
