Go Fish is a card game played with a standard 52-card deck. Five cards are dealt to each player if there are three to six players. With only two players, seven cards are dealt to each. All remaining cards are placed face down in a stock pile. Players take turn to be the dealer.
On your turn, ask a player for a specific card rank. You must already hold at least one card of the requested rank. If the player you ask has any cards of the requested rank, he/she must give all of their cards of that rank to you. If you get one or more cards from the player you ask, you get another turn to play. If the person you ask has no relevant cards, they say, "Go fish." You then draw the top card from the stock pile. If you happen to draw a card of the rank asked for, show it to the other players and you get another turn to play. However, if you draw a card that's not the rank you asked for, it becomes the next player's turn. You keep the drawn card, whatever rank it is.
When you collect a set of four cards of the same rank, immediately show the set to the other players and place the four cards face down in front of you.
The game continues until a player has no cards left in their hand or the draw pile runs out. The winner is the player who then has the most sets of four.
