September 23rd is Nintendo's 127th birthday! So, sorry not sorry, for this filler post about a Hanafuda party, and how I plan to celebrate! Will you be celebrating?
So I'm all for celebrating everything you can. So it being the 127th birthday for Nintendo means I absolutely have to do something!
So, every party needs some drinks, some food and some entertainment. So here is what my part is going to look like!
So I'm currently residing in Cleveland, Ohio and we're home to a pretty decent Brewery, Great Lakes Brewery has been a beer staple since before I can remember and also has a perfect option for the beer drinkers who play Hanafuda, and that's Commodore Perry, an easy drinking, affordable IPA.
Commodore Perry is know as playing a key role in opening Japan to the West. While it was Francis Xavier who brought portuguese playing cards to Japan, Commodore Perry helped make it so everyone around the world could play what came of it. So what better way to celebrate. Some other options I'm considering are some Japanese beers, Including; Hitachino and Ichiban
I know Hanafuda games will be the main entertainment (or other Nintendo games!) but I'll also be partaking in a few movies. I've got a family friendly option as well as crime/thriller.
Along with movies of course be sure to play lots of Hanafuda games! If you don't have a deck, my print and play should be floating around on boardgamegeek.com or try and get your hands on a copy of Nintendo Club House games for the Nintendo DS, then you can celebrate both Hanafuda and Nintendo Gaming, with this compilation of games that includes Koi-Koi, this is actually how I learned to play Koi-Koi originally! Or head over to BoardGameArena.com and play people around the world in Koi-Koi (using my designs!).
I hope you have a fun Sept. 23rd, whether you're celebrating or not! Next week I'll be continuing my posts on the months with our second month of February! Please keep the surveys coming from the last post, I've received so many! It's really helping me get an idea of what you hopet o get out of this kickstarter!
