Go Fish Fitness
Go Fish Fitness is a card game for kids based around the classic rules of "Go Fish" with an added fitness component to encourage them to get up, jump around, and incorporate physical exercise in a fun and competitive way. Players compete to make a match and force everyone else to perform the activity shown on the cards.
Each card in this standard 52-card 4 suit deck features adorable and beautifully illustrated animals performing simple exercises for children to act out. For added goofiness, encourage them to pretend to act and make sounds like the animals shown while doing the exercise to the best of their ability.

Go Fish Fitness Product Details
Go Fish Fitness uses the standard rules for a game of Go Fish or any variant you choose. When a player makes a pair by asking for a card from another player or successfully drawing the desired card from the Pond, all other players at the table must get up and perform the exercise described on the card. The number of repetitions or duration of the exercise is the number on the card (Ex. 10 Jumping Jacks, or a 5-second Plank). Encourage players to act and make sounds like the animals shown, and allow younger players or players with limited mobility to perform within their range of ability.
Standard Go Fish Fitness Rules
Each player is dealt 5 cards with the remainder scattered in the middle randomly (the "Pond"). A player takes their turn by asking another player for a card of a specific value that they already have at least one of (Ex. If Alice has a three, she may ask "Bob, do you have any threes?"). The other player must hand over any cards of that number that they have. If they do not have any they tell the asking player to "Go Fish" who then must draw a card from the Pond and place it in their hand. The asking player places any pairs they have on the table. If a pair matches the requested card all other players must now do the exercise and the player takes another turn. If a player runs out of cards they may draw five more from the Pond. Once all pairs have been found the player with the most pairs wins.
Go Fish Fitness comes with 54 cards. The deck is based on a standard 52-card deck where numbers have been substituted for traditional face cards with 11=J, 12=Q, 13=K. The two additional cards are the Ladybug and the Rules (Jokers). The suits have been modified with Squares/Stars representing Clubs/Spades respectively.
The artwork and coloration of the card suits (Orange, Green, Blue, and Pink) was selected to be color-blindness friendly being designed around a conservative 7-color palette described by Bang Wong in Nature Methods research journal.
Go Fish Fitness is available in both English and French.
