Go Fish - Fishing for Feelings Game
€21.14 ex. VAT
Kids have always loved to play the popular card game, Go Fish.
Play-2-Learn® Go Fish: Fishing for Feelings™ teaches the skills needed to successfully deal with feelings, recognise feelings in others, and identify appropriate feelings. Players practice talking about their feelings, in an open-ended and non-threatening way.
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.
