Oichu-Kabu was one of the more popular card games in Rokugan, most of which were adopted from gaijin games introduced during the period prior to the Battle of White Stag. After that confrontation, foreign playing cards were banned but new types of card decks were created. The most common of these were the kabufuda deck, which used numeric suits, and the hanafuda deck, wich used flower suits. Oichu-kabu could use either deck of cards, although kabufuda games were by far the most common. [1]

Rules Edit

If played with numeric suits each player was dealt one card at the start of a hand, and the players took turns calling for more cards to be dealt to them until they chose to stop or must stop under the rules. The goal of the game was to accumulate cards with a total series number value of 9 without going over. If played with flower suits the deck size and different numbering scheme changed the calculations of the game by increasing the number of low-value cards. [1]
