I'm having a bugger of a time getting this game, and having played it finally at bgg.con has only made me want this more. I'm thinking about ordering an imitation deck off artscow, but was wondering if there are any other games that have suitable decks for this game.

Surely there are a ton of cheap kids games or other common card games that have 5 suits, with numbers 1-5? I guess the hard part will be finding them with 3 copies of 1's, but I wouldn't mind buying a few copies if it's cheap.

3 Rage or Sticheln decks. These can also be used to play a ton of other games.

Alternatively, get 6 poker decks from a dollar store and mark up one of the suits in 3 of the decks as Kites or Valentines. See the "Do It Yourself" section of the following article: http://www.thegamesjournal.com/articles/GameSystems2.shtml

I'm in the same boat. I was looking at Coloretto. Would that do it? You would have to add numbers.

Correction: Coloretto only has nine cards of each colour, Hananbi needs ten.

That would definitely work, and Is a good idea. It has 6+ colors, you'd just have to add numbers.

I was thinking of getting some of those rub on stencil numbers.

I'd buy the original but I can't find anyone in Australia who sells it, and postage from overseas is more than the game.

You can order it from GameSurplus. It's back ordered, but inexpensive, low shipping if you buy just that. You'll get it eventually. That's where I got my new version.

that's where I got my copy as well...the cocktail games version and it came with english rules printed for you (albeit horribly printed!) I guess the new version comes with a full 10 cards in multi-color, which makes me want it for that alone!

Another replacement option is a double set of Lost Cities. Yes, that may appear weird but some geeks (present company included) have two sets so as to play with four players. Anyway, just use the investment cards as Ones and you're all set. And yes, you'll need tokens/chips to achieve further authenticity or lack thereof.

edit: didn't realize someone else had suggested this idea in an earlier thread. my bad.

The Bucket King -- except that you'd have to use 2-6, 3-7, or 4-8. If you use 1-5, there aren't enough 1's.

I was playing Abyss with my wife today and we realized that you can use the Exploration deck to play Hanabi. There are exactly 5 races of Allies, each of them with its unique colour, and there are more than enough numbered Ally cards to play Hanabi (three 1s, two 2s, two 3s, two 4s, and one 5). In fact, after finishing our play of Abyss, we played a game of Hanabi with the Exploration cards, and it worked just fine!
