Hiragana Poker is simple rule game to come up with a Japanese word under 5 letters, using the five hiragana cards handed out. The person who comes up with the funniest word wins! The game captured attention in Twitter from the funny words created by random chance.

With 70 cards in total, the game has four types of cards:
1)Hiragana card: Top ten most used hiragana letters come with 2 cards each, allowing players to come up with more words easily.
2)Clear card: Place it over the hiragana card to create a dakuon (two small dots) or han-dakuon sound (small circle).
3)Circle card: The almighty card to use as a replacement for any necessary letter.
4)W card: Like LOL or haha in English, the letter "W" comes from the Japanese word "warau" which stands for laugh in Japanese.

Card size 5.7cm x 8.9cm approx. Comes in a card case for easy carrying.
