Play-2-Learn Go Fish Card Games
by Franklin Rubenstein, PhD
Here’s a therapeutic twist on the classic Go Fish card game. The 12 versions presented here teach youngsters about character, responsibility, friendship, anger control, conflict resolution, feelings, stress, bullying, self-esteem, success, self-control, and manners. Each game includes two decks of 50 cards (one deck for grades K–2, the other for grades 3–5). And each card poses an open-ended question that the player must answer before he or she can request Henry Herring, Markey Mackerel, or any other fish needed for a match. Familiar and fun, Go Fish is an easy, affordable way for children to improve their social and emotional skills.

Play-2-Learn Go Fish card games play like classic Go Fish.This game helps players take charge of their impulses instead of their impulses taking charge of them. The game utilizes proven techniques for improving self-control, including pausing to think about possible consequence, delaying gratification, self-talk, and problem-solving strategies. There are two decks of 50 cards in each game - one for grades K-2 and the other for grades 3-5. The games differ 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. Each game comes with a rules sheet and facilitator guidelines.
