Flower Battle(in 2020) originates from Hwatu and Hanafuda. Hwatu is Korean version of Hanafuda, introduced to Korea from Japan early in 1900's. Hanafuda(early in the 19th century) was transformed from Karuta(late in the 17th century), which originated from Hombre, Spain/Portuguese version of European playing cards, Portuguese missionaries/traders brought with them into Japan in the mid-16 century. And, European playing cards(in the 14th century) were in fact, through Persia, from China, many believe.

Rules of Flower Battle come from Gostop, a game of Hwatu, with clear definition of each rule in English and new wordings for some of the rules. Gostop originated from Japanese Koi Koi but evolved in Korea to a different level with unique rules and irresistible fun.
Design of Flower Battle was completed by a professional book illustrator based on Hanafuda, Hwatu and actual natural flowers, trees and animals.

Flower Battle is all about collecting flowers of 12 months. Although the game is easy to learn, a bit of strategy is needed to win. You scan your Hand cards and Ground cards to plan how to score points, while keeping an eye on other players' moves to adjust your strategy.
