Go Fish

Match your cards

Go Fish, also called Fish, is a simple card game popular among children. It is best played by two to four players, although theoretically it can be played with up to ten.

The basic game

Five cards are dealt to each player, or seven if there are only two players.

The player whose turn it is to play asks another player for his/her cards of a particular rank. For example, "Jill, give me your fours". A player may only ask for a rank of which he/she already holds at least one card. The recipient of the request must then hand over all cards of that rank. If the call was successful, the same player has another turn. If the player who was asked has no cards of that rank, he/she says "Go fish" (or simply "Fish"), and the asking player draws the top card from the pack. The turn then passes to the player who was asked.

When one player has all four cards of a given rank, they form a book, and the cards are placed face up on the table. The game ends when all thirteen books are formed, and the player who won the most books wins.

If the player whose turn it is has no cards left in hand, the game is not over, but he/she simply draws the top card from the pack and the turn passes.
