Needed: 52 card deck; 2 or more players

Deal: Players are dealt 5 cards, 1 card at a time.  If playing with only 2 players, deal 7 cards to each player.  The remaining deck is placed into the middle.

Objective:  The objective of the game is to create 4-of-a-kinds in card rank.

Game Play: The player left of the dealer is first to play.  The player will pick another player, and ask if he/she has a certain card rank.  In order to ask for a card, you must hold at least 1 card in the same rank.  When a player receives at least 1 card from the player asked, that player gets to go again.  If a player does not have any of the cards asked for, he/she responds “go fish”.  Go fish means the asking player will draw a card from the center deck.  Play continues clockwise until all the cards have been laid down into 4 –of-a-kinds.

If a player draws a card that gives him/her a 4-of-a-kind, the cards are immediately laid down.  If during the round a player runs out of cards, the player will draw 5 new cards from the middle deck.  If the middle deck has less than 5 cards, the player will draw the remaining cards.

When the middle deck runs out of cards, play continues until all cards have been laid down.  When “go fish” is announced, play just moves to the next player.   If a player runs out of cards when the middle deck is out, he/she is done playing for the game, and waits until play ends.

Winning:  At the end of the game each player counts his/her 4-of-a-kinds, and the player with the most wins the game.
