how to play

This is a game adapted from the traditional game Go Fish! The object is to collect sets of four cards of the same rank, by asking other players for cards you think they may have. Whoever collects most sets wins.

  • The dealer shuffles and deals 4 cards to each player.
  • Players take turns asking one other player if he or she has a card. If they have it your turn continues; if not the turn passes to the player you asked. For example, Have you got a flower? / Yes, I have. Here you are!
  • You must have a card of the rank you asked for. Sets of 4 cards are discarded.
  • The game continues until all the cards are formed into sets, and whoever gets most sets wins.
