GIFT IDEA – TWISTED FISH

About Twisted Fish

The old game of go fish just got a very challenging twist. It isn?t child?s play any more! Twisted Fish takes a traditional standby and casts it into the 21st century. 13 unique Fish characters in five different colors, plus 8 unique ?Zingers? that allow you to break the rules, makes ?Twisted Fish? a unique game experience. The real challenge takes place when asking for the fish cards you are collecting?Now you have to be specific about the type of fish and color you are seeking. ?Twisted Fish? challenges you to remember every question asked at the table. It is challenging and fun right down to the very last card!

Uncle Luc visited this weekend so naturally hubby and I decided to have some fun and play some games with him. It was a blast. Since I had been sent the card game Twisted Fish, it was one of the first things we put on the table. It is a variation of the old Go Fish, except players make groups of five instead of pairs. Best of all it only costs only $10.00.

Rules are simple and up to six (ages 10 and up) can play. Winning requires concentration, memory, and a tad of bluffing. To mix things up, the deck includes zinger cards for lure net, no fishing, divine intervention, joker, glass bottom boat, dead scuba diver, the game warden, and 2-fisted fisherman. What I liked best was the artwork straight from Hollywood. Every fish is true comic art designed to bring smiles and giggles. Barracuda, Barnacle Blowfish, Card Shark, Clownfish, Crab, Dogfish, Eel, Flying Fish, Hammerhead, Jellyfish, Shrimp, Starfish, Whale, are great play and play on words.

Twisted Fish is available online from McNeil Designs for $10.00 plus shipping, as well as in select stores across the nation.

  1. Glass Bottom Boat – Play anytime. Pick an opponent, pull one random card from his hand, look at it, and give it back. (It is considered bad manners to tell anyone what card was disclosed.)

  2. The zinger cards sound fun! Here is what one the cards does ~ The Lure — Play this card at the beginning of a turn. The player can ask for a specific type of card that he may or may not have in hand. For example: “Susan, do you have a Green Dogfish?” – Player may or may not have any Dogfish in his hand.

  3. The zinger card allows players to flout the rules, steal their opponent’s cards, and even look at another player’s cards.

  4. Two Fisted Fisherman — “Go Again.”- Play after asking for a card that an opponent doesn’t have, but before going to the Fish Pond. The player immediately gets to ask for any card from the same player or any other player

  5. Zinger Card: The Lure — Play this card at the beginning of a turn. The player can ask for a specific type of card that he may or may not have in hand. For example: “Susan, do you have a Green Dogfish?” – Player may or may not have any Dogfish in his hand.

    Thank you for the chance to win!
