faced down.
2. Player A asks player B for the past tense card or Present tense form of
one of his/hers cards. (e.g. If player A has the card ‘Go’ then he can
ask the card ‘Went’ from the other player) The player must state the
opposite of the tense he has.
3. If player B has the card they must give it to player A. If not, then player
B says, ‘Go Fish!’ and player A has to draw a card from the pile.

in front of him and gets one point.
5. The game continues back and forth until all cards have run out.
