This article lists games that are variations on standard Hanafuda. Full rules for these games are not given here but on the game articles (if they exist).

Hanafuda tiles

Hanafuda has been produced in a tile format (like Mahjong) by various companies in Japan. These Hanafuda tiles (花札牌 hanafuda pai) are designed to be used to play standard games.

Hanafuda tiles produced by Hakuto (白東), published with the English title “Family Flower Chess”, and Japanese title 花駒 (hanakoma, literally ‘flower pawn’).

Formosa Flowers

Formosa Flowers is a board game published by Soso Studio that adapts the Hanafuda deck to Taiwanese flowers and customs, and comes with a fresh ruleset developed for the cards.

Hana-Awase: Japanese Flower MEMO

Hana-Awase is a tile-based version that uses the Hanafuda deck to play “memory”-style games. It has several levels of difficulty to suit children from ages 2 up.

The art was designed with consultation from Ebashi Takashi in order to produce art with colours consistent with traditional Japanese dye-making techniques.
