Pursuant to my earlier post which saw me searching my house for Club Nintendo registration cards, I received my Club Nintendo gift in the mail today! Say hello to 800 coins worth of Nintendo centric glory; the limited edition Club Nintendo Hanafuda cards. What are Hanafuda cards, you ask? Translated, the name means flower cards. Adorned in traditionally designed Japanese flower artwork, these cards can be used to play a variety of games.
Being from Club Nintendo, the individual cards are, of course, Mario themed in one way or another, but the characters are still represented in the traditional Japanese style.
Not bad for being a local customer. I don’t think anything will ever top the Zelda Collector’s Edition I received in 2003 (just in time for Christmas!) for registering my Gamecube and 2 games with My Nintendo (Club Nintendo’s predecessor). Now THAT was one hell of a free gift.
