How to play?
- On his or her turn, a player can ask another player (of his or her choice) for a card value.
Do you have a 5?
Warning. You can only ask for a value you already have.
To ask for a 5, I must have at least a 5 in my hand.
- If the opponent has the requested value, he gives all the cards of this value to the requester.
- If the opponent does not have the value requested, he says “go fish”.
The claimant draws a card.
- If the card drawn is in the value requested, he reveals it and plays again.
- If the card drawn is not in the required value, he keeps the card and passes the hand.
- Once you have a square of cards, place them face up in front of you.
- When a player runs out of cards, he immediately draws 5 cards.
- If the deck is empty, the game continues.
