Go Fish - Catch Good Character Game

Original price

€21.14 ex. VAT

Kids have always loved to play the popular card game, Go Fish.  

Play-2-Learn® Go Fish: Catch Good Charactercovers a range of character dimensions, including honesty, caring, responsibility, fairness, and generosity, among others.  The questions are designed to encourage players to give examples from their own experience about behaviour that demonstrates good character and to help players understand the meaning of common character traits.

The game plays like classic Go Fish. There are two decks of 50 cards in each game – one for ages 5-8 and the other for 8-11. It differs from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card.  Instead of the usual number and picture cards, the cards have fun pictures of fish and fish names. For example, a player may ask, “Do you have any Henry Herrings?”  If the player receives a Henry Herring card, the player reads the question on the card aloud and answers it.  All questions are open ended.  If the player did not have any Henry Herrings, the player would say, “go fish,” and then the first player would take a card from the “ocean” (extra cards in the centre of the table).  A rules sheet and facilitator guidelines are included.

Suitable for 5-11 yrs.

Time required:  about 20 minutes

Players: 2 – 5
