    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Hanafuda cards are a set of Japanese playing cards that, like western playing cards, are used to play a variety of games. A standard deck contains forty-eight cards divided into twelve suits, with four cards each to a suit. In relation to video games, the company Nintendo was originally founded in 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi as a hanafuda card manufacturer. Nintendo's primary business remained in hanafuda cards until Fusajiro's descendent Hiroshi Yamauchi looked to expand the company's interests and transitioned Nintendo into a video game company.
