I'm surprised I have GG to throw around on frivolous stuff like this.

So I just got Hanabi from Amazon yesterday and was excited because I've been out of the BGG loop for a while and didn't even realize it had won the SdJ.

I open it up and realize there are no instructions in the box. Nice!

Then R&R's website is terrible.. you fill out their contact form and get no response that they received the correspondence and are even working on it. I called them today and got put on hold for 5+ minutes and finally gave up.

Then I look at the cards and see how terrible the quality is. Yikes... R&R you are no impressing me.

Same thing happened to me, but R&R responded really quickly. They'll get in touch soon.

Go to Amazon.de and buy the German edition. Much better cards and the colors and shapes are vastly easier to distinguish between when playing. You can find English instructions her on BGG.

Use Google Chrome browser and you can easily translate the page from German to English to make ordering simple.

Enjoy!

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Just print the PDF from here. What's the big deal?

I paid $11 for a card game (with crappy cards). I want the instructions.

R&R did get back to me and they'll send out the instructions.

I saw another post with someone getting the game with no tokens. They obviously have some quality control problems.

The "crappy cards" comment is clearly subjective. My R&R cards are great, and I love the full bleed over a white border.

R&R is the only copy I would buy.

That's expensive. Last year I grabbed a few copies in Essen for about €5. I don't think that the price in Germany has risen since then.
