Before we start on the drinking version of Go Fish, I think it is a good idea to run though the basics of the original game. Just in case you missed out on this one when you were a kid.

How to play the original Game – Go Fish

  • Choose your dealer.
  • For 2 people; the dealer will deal out 7 cards to each player
  • For 3 or more people; the dealer will deal 5 cards to each player
  • Place remaining cards face down in the center of the table.
  • All players pick up their cards, and hide them from the other player(s).
  • The Player to the left of the dealer is first to play. We will call him/her Player 2
  • Player 2 will pick any player (or opponent) and ask if they have a certain card.
  • For example – ‘Have you got an Eight.’
  • For player 2 to ask for a card; they must already hold at least 1 of the same number in their hand. In this example, they would need to be holding an Eight
  • If the player has One or more Eight in their hand they must hand them all over to player 2.
  • If player 2 receives at least One Eight from the player he has asked he gets to play again.
  • Player 2 then asks a different player (or his opponent) for the same or different number.
  • If that player doesn’t have that card, he shouts, ‘GO FISH’
  • Player 2 will end his turn and pick up a card from the center deck.
  • The turn now moves to Player 3.
  • Player 3 has (for example) 3 Seven’s in his hand. He chooses a player and asks for a Seven. The player has a seven and hands it over.
  • Player 3 now has 4 sevens, giving him 4 OF A KIND.
  • He takes them out of his hand and puts them face down.

Winning the Game

  • The game continues until all cards are gone.
  • The winner is the player with the most ‘4 of a kind’ or ‘Books’.

Rules to follow

  • During the game if a player has 4 of a kind, they immediately remove them from their hand and lay them face down
  • If a player runs out of cards they will draw 5 new cards from the center deck
  • If the center deck has less than 5 cards the player will take whatever is remaining.
  • When there are no longer any cards in the center, the play will continue until all cards are laid down in 4 of a kind.
  • When someone shouts, ‘GO FISH’ and there are no cards to pick up, play just moves to the next player.
  • When a player runs out of their cards, they will just wait until the game ends

OK, so now you have the basic rules …. we are ready for the fun part…
