Hanabi – named for the Japanese word for "fireworks" and consisting of the ideograms "Flower" and "Fire" – is a cooperative game in which players try to create the perfect fireworks show by placing the cards on the table in the right order.
The card deck consists of five different colors of cards, numbered 1-5 in each color. For each color, the players try to place a row in the correct order from 1-5. Sounds easy, right? Well, not quite as in this game you hold your cards so that they're visible only to other players. To assist other players in playing a card, you must give them hints regarding the numbers or the colors of their cards. Players must act as a team to avoid errors and to finish the fireworks display before they run out of cards.

My sister and her family play all kinds of games, all of them each person against the rest of the family members. Except Hanabi. What a break from the beating we take from my sister's middle child, who usually wins every game with ease. However, with Hanabi we're a team, all of us players trying our best to help each other with the right "hint" so that each person can put down or discard the most appropriate card. I haven't yet been a group that has given hints good enough to complete the piles, thus winning, yet I love the process and trying to fight the muscle memory to look at the card we draw after a play or discard.
