Nintendo Kabufuda Deck

Kabufuda (“nine-cards”) are Japanese playing cards used for gambling games such as Oicho-Kabu. A Kabufuda deck contains 40 cards, with designs representing the numbers 1 through 10. There are four cards for each number.

The object of all kabufuda card games is to get a total closest to nine. Oicho-Kabu is a traditional Japanese gambling game similar to baccarat. The goal of the game is to reach a total closest to 9 without going over. As in baccarat, the last digit of any total over 10 makes your hand: a 15 counts as 5, a 12 as 2, and a 20 as 0.

The name of the Japanese mafia, Yakuza, originates from this game. The worst Oicho-Kabu hand is 8-9-3, or “ya-ku-sa”. This gives a sum total of 20, or 0 points.

The Nintendo Kabufuda Deck available here is the classic Japanese deck.

I am away on holiday from Thursday 28th July until Saturday 20th August so I will be unable to process any orders until 21st August 2016.

You may still order mahjong sets, hanafuda decks and so on, but please allow for considerable delays as nothing will be shipped until 22nd August at the EARLIEST.

Here's wishing you all a great summer.
