This is awesome. Is there any more info that you know of? Mechanics? More to the expansion? Etc.

I'm currently playtesting it with a prototype of what you can see on the image above. There's also a hardcore-variant in development, in which all the players are blindfolded. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you any more at this time...

I am also working on a variant that includes a traitor. Your loyalty card is naturally held face out.

Whilst my solo variant needs a bit of refinement, I think I have the basic format sorted out.


I suppose the absence of clue giving and deduction won't be to everyone's taste, you might even argue it's not really a game.

However, it's very strong on theme and no two plays will ever be the same.

All that fun being put apart, I'm pretty sure a game with hidden cards and partial revealed information leading to deduction is possible. Just imagine cards with some info on the sides and you are just allowed to slide one side to look at it...

I don't know if I'm being trolled or not, but supposing the OP is serious, here it is.

People are responding tongue in cheek to the original post.

Yes, the joke about the mirror being a new expansion cracked me up...

Maybe it could be possible to create a solo deductive game, as courtjus said, but it... would not be Hanabi anymore, even finding a way to use the cards.
