ShichinarabeShichinarabeShichinarabe is a Flash implementation of Sevens, a card game using a standard deck of 52 cards also known as Fans Tan or Parliament.

Cards are played out to form a layout of sequences going up and down in suit from the sevens.

All cards are dealt to the four players. Then the players place all sevens from their hands on the table before the first card is played.

Cards may be added in sequence down to the ace and up to the king. A player can place an ace on the other side of the table if a King of the same suit has already been played and vice-versa.

A player who can’t play a card passes. Up to three times per game a player may also choose to pass.

The winner is the player who empties his hand first. The game is over when you have to pass more than three times or if you are left holding a card (or more) when all the other players have emptied their hands.

Shichinarabe is in Japanese, but the game is very easy to play; the AI is good, the presentation is top-notch and if you like card games, this is a must play!

Have fun!

    Funny enough, though I don’t understand at what point players were allowed to put ace or king on their place without it being in line…

  2. CountessDeecula says:

    yeah i don’t get that bit either but i love the game, highly addictive.

  3. CountessDeecula says:

    ahh i get it, if you have the last 2 cards on that line in a particular suit, then u can put your ace down.

  4. CountessDeecula says:

    I mean last few cards

  5. anne says:

    still don’t understand when you can play the ace and the king
    i don,t think the countesses idee is exact.
    very addicting game!

  7. hootie says:

    wow i made it to day 19 w 587 points. that’s a lot to me. this game is easy and addicting.

  8. Toxic says:

    I had the same problem with the joker, couldn’t play it at any time and got stuck with it, so I lost…

  9. Toxic says:

    Got the joker to work on my second attempt at the game :-)

    Just wish I could turn the sound off…

  10. Toxic says:

    Thanx a lot for another game I’m addicted to! ;-)

    Tho I can’t seem to get past day 4…

  11. Irid says:

    Ok, I get it. When the king has been played in that line, you can play the ace, and vice versa :)

  12. LittleKatie2 says:

    lol i like this game…i’m very addicted but cant get past day 3…i’ll just have to have luck on my side i guess ^_^

  13. Toxic says:

    Finally got up to day 7! :-)

    Then I got stuck with one card and everybody finished before me…

  14. LittleKatie2 says:

    I got up to day 12 finally…then my last card was a joker and I didn’t know you couldn’t play a joker if you have no other cards! Prob my only time getting to day 12 ever lol

  15. Toxic says:

    It appears u can only play the joker if u also have the card that follows the one your using it in place of…
    Does that make sense?

  16. Toxic says:

    Day 25 with 746 points! My highest ‘level’ so far :-)
    I only lost cos I got stuck with the ace/two/three of clubs and nobody would put down the four or king, so I had to pass 3 times :-(

    Been watching it closely cos I was convinced it was cheating. The other players would have lots of cards and I’d only have a few, then suddenly they’d be finishing while I still had cards left. And I hadn’t passed once! It can’t cheat tho…

    Can it? ;-)
