E3. Here's a description of a card game from Wikipedia. Name the game (the name is the same as the blanked-out word in the second para):

Using a standard 52-card deck, five cards are dealt to each player, or seven if there are four or fewer. The remaining card pack is shared between the players, usually sprawled out in a non-orderly pile referenced as the "ocean" or "pool".

The player whose turn it is to play asks another player for his or her cards of a particular rank. For example, "Bim, do you have any threes?" The player who is asking must have at least one card of the rank he asked for in his hand. The recipient of the request must then hand over a card of that rank, if he has any. If the recipient of the request has none, he tells the player to "go _____," and the player draws a card from the pool and ends his turn. If the player receives the card he wanted (through either means), he may take another turn. If the player is now holding a pair of one rank, he may place the cards face up in front of himself.

Winning: When one player runs out of cards, or the pool is empty, the game ends. The player with the most piles in front of him or her wins.

A. Fish. The game is also called 'Go Fish' or other variants of this theme. 


  1. Go Fish or Go fishing

  2. Fish?? As in "go fish" or "go fishing".

  3. Easiest one so far, 'Go Fish!'.


  4. And here we have Jesus Christ Superstar, yet another musical. I'm not sure if I should get points for this one, cos I had googled and read about Webber back when I realised I wasn't going to get the Master Answer myself.

  5. Go Fish
