I really like Hanabi. Its biggest flaw is that it is impossible to find a copy of it anywhere.

This flaw is correctable if you own the forgettable game Five Crowns. A Five Crowns deck can be used as a proxy for Hanabi, until you manage to find an official copy.

You can use the face cards of each suit in place of the Aces, then use 3-6 for the next cards in sequence: (J,Q,K)-(3,3)-(4,4)-(5,5)-(6).

For clue-giving, (J,Q,K) are all considered the same rank ("face" or "base"). You can use colors or suits interchangeably (black/spades, blue/diamonds, red/hearts, green/clubs, yellow/stars).

By using a sharpie to mark five of the jokers "face", "3", "4", "5", and "6", you can play the Avalanche of Colors variant.

Cheers,
PP
