Mario Hanafuda (Red)
Hanafuda cards featuring Super Mario characters.
Hanafuda, which means “flower cards”, is a traditional Japanese card game that dates back to the 1500s. It is said
that the modern design of the card set was created in the mid-1700s. Nintendo started out as a manufacturer of
hanafuda cards in 1889.
The 48 cards are split into 12 suits of four cards representing the 12 calendar months. Each suit is decorated with a flower or plant that blooms in that month, as well as other Mario-themed scenes.
