Dai Fugō (大富豪 - "very rich man"), which was formerly more often known as Dai Hinmin (大貧民 - "very poor man") is a Japanese card game of the "climbing" group. As in all these games, the aim is to get rid of all one's cards before the other players by playing them singly or in combination. It seems likely that the game was introduced from China in the 1970's. It became popular throughout Japan in the 1980's and 1990's, and during this time numerous additional rules and variations were introduced. It seems likely that some early version of Dai Hinmin was the direct ancestor of President, which became popular in the West a few years later.
