Card Games : Go Fish

Easy game for under tens but they may need somewhere to "hold" their cards so they can see them all - we put them face up on the table and use a book as a shield to stop cheating!
Number of players: 2 or more
The object of the game is to collect sets of four of each value of card.  The winner is the player with the most complete sets of four.
Use the whole pack of cards.  Deal four cards to each player.  The rest of the cards are placed face down in the middle.
Each player looks at their cards throughout the game without showing them to the other players.
The first player looks at his cards and chooses a value of a card that is the same as one in their hand.  They then choose another player (not necessarily the next immediate player) and ask if they have any cards of that value.  If that player has any cards of that value they hand all of them over and the first player gets another go. If they have no cards of that value they say "Go Fish!" and the first player takes a new card from the pile.  It is then the next players go.
When a player collects four cards of a particular value they remove them from their hand and place on the table next to them.
The game is over when all the cards have been removed from the pile.  The winner is the player with the most sets of four cards.
