Canon Papercraft - Fan-Tossing Game Paper Toy Download


Canon Papercraft - Fan-Tossing Game Paper Toy DownloadThis paper toy is designed by canon papercraft. This is an original game based on the traditional Japanese fan tossing game, "tosenkyo." Tosenkyo (also called Toshinkyo) is a traditional Japanese fan-tossing game where players try to knock a target off a wooden stand by tossing an open folding fan.

The game originated in the 18th Century after a gambler was trying to take a nap and a butterfly bothered him. He tossed his fan at the annoying butterfly but missed several times. His failure though gave him an idea for a new game which was called Tosenkyo.

It was at first more of a rowdy game for sake drinking parties with more than a little gambling going on. Later the game was refined and became more of sophisticated parlor game.

Scoring is based on how the fan and target land and can range from 1-50 points. The name of the points are called after sections of The Tale of the Genji, an 11th Century literary classic.
