Hattari — a.k.a. Yabunonaka (also known by the English name “In a Grove”) — is a game of bluffing and deduction, and the player who ends up with the fewest accusation markers wins the game.
The game is played in rounds. Each round, each player receives one of the eight silhouettes (which are numbered 2-8 with one blank), while three silhouettes are placed in the center of the table as suspects and the final silhouette is dubbed the victim. (With three players, the #2 is removed from the game.) You have to determine which suspect is the culprit, either to accuse him or to lure the other players into accusing someone who’s innocent!
The game ends when any player has no colored markers available to place or any player has collected eight or more markers, whatever their color. The player holding the fewest markers wins the game.
