There are many variations to the rules of Go Fish, we opted for ones that worked for all ages and for two players. Players are dealt 6 cards each, pairs (2 cards that match) are layed down and can't be taken by their opponent. Players take turns asking for a specific card, if their opponent has it they must give it up, if they don't the asking player must draw or Go Fish. If the card asked for is drawn, the player's turn continues, if they draw another match it is laid down and the player ends their turn. Otherwise the drawn card is added to the players hand and the other player begins their turn.
