BGG Description: Welcome to the most well-known geisha street in the old capital, Hanamikoji. Geisha — the graceful women elegantly mastering in art, music, dance, and a variety of artistic performances after years of training — are greatly respected and adored. Geisha may be translated to "artist" and they dance, sing and entertain everyone.
In Hanamikoji, two players compete to earn the favors of the seven geisha masters by collecting the performance items with which they excel. With careful speculation and sometimes a few bold moves, you may earn the essential items by giving away the less critical ones. Can you outsmart your opponent and win the most favors of the geisha?
It has a great amount of tension and an incredible amount of depth for what is in the box. Because of that, I am giving Hanamikoji two huge thumbs way up. - Sam Healey, Dice Tower
Hanamikoji is beautiful gaming elegance at its finest. - Milena Guberinic
Every decision you make is critical, because one card at the wrong side of a geisha master can completely turn the game around. - Rowdy van Lieshout
