The Two Types of Clues

  • Fundamentally, Hanabi is all about giving clues. Different groups have different definitions of what clues should mean.
  • In our group, clues always have a specific meaning.
  • Players are only allowed to give two types of clues:
    • a Play Clue (meaning to play the focused card)
    • a Save Clue (meaning to save the focused card for later)
  • If players cannot give a valid Play Clue or a valid Save Clue, then they must discard.
  • Let's go through Play Clues and Save Clues individually.
