KAJANG, 5th January – A Hanafuda Workshop was recently held in College of Foundation and Diploma Studies (CFDS), Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) under PEEP Workshops, an educational series run by Soft-skills Enhancement and Learning Support (SEALS) UNITEN. Conducted by Japanese Cultural Club UNITEN (JCCU), Hanafuda Workshop marks one of the very first collaborations between JCCU and SEALS, though both clubs have previously organized workshops on Fridays to enrich students’ life with fun and helpful workshops.
The workshop started with a short explanation by Muhammad Wasseef bin Suhaimi about the rules of hanafuda, which is a traditional Japanese card game based on flowers that relies on your luck and memory. A one versus one game where the players take turns in drawing and collecting the cards, the players are required to organize the cards in various combinations which, based on the difficulty, will determine the points earned. The winner with most points at the end wins.
