One of the all-time kid classics, Go Fish is a two-person game that can be played by kids of all ages. The object of Go Fish is to collect groups of four cards by value. You get your cards from your opponent by simply asking them to "give me all your Aces," for instance. In order to ask for the cards, you must already hold at least one. And if you have the requested cards, you need to give them up. If you ask and get some cards, then you repeat your turn. If you strike out, your opponent tells you to "go fish," and you must draw from the top of the deck. When you get a set of four, lay the set down and resume the game. Play continues until the winner runs out of cards.
