Hanafuda by ZAT SOFT

These beautiful cards were created in 1983 using only characters, without bitmap graphics. This was because the Sharp MZ-700, like many home computers of its era, couldn’t do bitmap graphics.


Here is a download of the Playscii art files for the above cards: Sharp MZ-700 Hanafuda.zip

Also included are a set of blank cards so you can try creating something yourself.

I encourage you to at least try as you’ll encounter some of the genius design decisions made by the original creator!
