Players listen and search for the playing card with the second part of the quote being read aloud.Grab the correct cards FAST before the others do in order to win! Known as an intellectual martial arts game in Japan. The cards have famous poetry quotes on them but no prior knowledge is needed!

This edition is not a translation of the original Japanese Hyakuninisshu poems. However, the original Japanese cards from Shogundo are printed on the backside as a design so you can play the game in Japanese if you can read and understand Japanese.
