Your competitors are out to kill your fish! Can you protect yourself and swim upstream quickly enough to survive?
Everyone plays at once in this fast-paced card game. Players compete and collaborate in a cutthroat fight for survival. If you can swim to the finish, you can win! For 2 to 6 players, recommended for ages 8 and up.
How to Play:This game is not played in turns. Players may play cards onto the discard pile at any time. Players only draw cards if they invoke the Flint Flush rule explained later.
Set-Up:Oldest player deals first. Rotate dealer clockwise in subsequent games. For 3 to 6 players: Deal 7 cards to each player, face down. For 2 players: Deal 10 cards to each player, face down. Players should not look at their cards until instructed to do so by the dealer. Place the remaining cards face down on the table to form a draw pile.
Start of Play:After the dealer places the remaining cards (draw pile) in the middle of the playing area, he/she exclaims 'What the Fish!', which signals everyone to pick up and look at their cards. The fastest person to place a FISH card face up on the table (this starts the discard pile) starts the game.
