Alphabet Go Fish is a fun learning tool that helps children learn to take turns, recognize similarities, learn the letters they most need to learn – lower case letters – and even begin to read! Beautiful art and sophisticated design make this a set for both parents and kids to enjoy.
How to Play:
Shuffle the cards and deal 7 cards face down to each player. Deal 5 cards to each player if there are 4 or more players. Place the remaining cards face down in a draw pile where everyone can reach them. Arrange cards by letter so that all the As are together, all the Bs are together, and so on. The player to the left of the dealer goes first and play continues clockwise. The first player asks a specific person if he or she has any cards of a specific number. For example, player one might ask player three if she has any Fs. Player one must have at least one F in his hand in order to ask for it. If player three has any Fs, she must give them all to player one. Player one may then go again and can continue playing until he does not get the card he asks for. If player three does not have any Fs, she says “Go fish!” and player one must take 1 card from the draw pile. If the picked card is the card he wanted, an F, he must show it to all players and can then go again. If it is not the card he asked for, then it is the next person’s turn. Once a player has collected 4 of a kind, he places the cards in front him. The game ends when either someone has no cards in his hand or the draw pile runs out.
