Does everyone remember how to play Go Fish? It’s the sort of entry-level card game, easy to pick up, and you have a hand of seven, which can be held by the smallest of fingers.
I love cards, and this was the first game I taught my kids (I should add that I don’t ever play for money – sometimes matches!). I can still remember my little one, learning to play.
When asked ‘All your Kings, please,’ despite having been reminded of the rules of the game their response would always be the same.
‘I don’t even have any Kings!’
Then we would roll our eyes, and say, ‘So what do you say?’
And then we’d be treated to a triumphant ‘Go Fish!’
Now, when we play, I will take up the refrain.
‘I don’t even have any Kings…Go Fish!’
