Geisha Experience: Kompira Fune Fune

Geisha Experience Konpira Fune Fune

This is a game played along with a song of the same name.

Two players alternately tap the target on the table and their other hand to the rhythm of the song.

However, if your opponent picks up the target, you must touch the table with a closed fist, without breaking the rhythm.

You may also pick up the target to fool your opponent, up to three times in a row.

You lose the game if you fail to tap properly, with an open hand on the target or fist on the table.
