1 Min Read

Go Fish is a fun and simple card game perfect for all ages. Here’s a quick guide on how to play and some strategies.


  • Deal 5 cards to each player (7 if only 2 players). The rest form the draw pile.
  • Players take turns asking each other for specific cards they need to complete sets of four.
  • If asked, you must give the requested card if you have it; otherwise, say “Go Fish,” and the asker draws from the pile.
  • Complete sets are placed face-up. The game continues until all sets are collected or the draw pile is empty.


  • Memory: Remember which cards opponents have asked for.
  • Bluffing: Try to mislead opponents by asking for cards you don’t need.
  • Set Priority: Focus on completing one set at a time for efficiency.
