fish - play ``Go Fish'' SYNOPSIS
/usr/games/fish DESCRIPTION
Fish plays the game of "Go Fish", a childrens' card game. The Object is to accumulate `books' of 4 cards with the same face value. The players alternate turns; each turn begins with one player selecting a card from his hand, and asking the other player for all cards of that face value. If the other player has one or more cards of that face value in his hand, he gives them to the first player, and the first player makes another request. Eventually, the first player asks for a card which is not in the second player's hand: he replies `GO FISH!' The first player then draws a card from the `pool' of undealt cards. If this is the card he had last requested, he draws again. When a book is made, either through drawing or requesting, the cards are laid down and no further action takes place with that face value. To play the computer, simply make guesses by typing a, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, j, q, or k when asked. Hitting return gives you infor- mation about the size of my hand and the pool, and tells you about my books. Saying `p' as a first guess puts you into `pro' level; The default is pretty dumb. 4th Berkeley Distribution May 20, 1985 FISH(6)

go-fish -- play ``Go Fish'' SYNOPSIS
go-fish [-p] DESCRIPTION
go-fish is the game ``Go Fish'', a traditional children's card game. The computer deals the player and itself seven cards, and places the rest of the deck face-down (figuratively). The object of the game is to collect ``books'', or all of the members of a single rank. For example, collecting four 2's would give the player a ``book of 2's''. The options are as follows: -p Professional mode. The computer makes a random decision as to who gets to start the game, and then the computer and player take turns asking each other for cards of a specified rank. If the asked player has any cards of the requested rank, they give them up to the asking player. A player must have at least one of the cards of the rank they request in their hand. When a player asks for a rank of which the other player has no cards, the asker is told to ``Go Fish!''. Then, the asker draws a card from the non-dealt cards. If they draw the card they asked for, they con- tinue their turn, asking for more ranks from the other player. Otherwise, the other player gets a turn. When a player completes a book, either by getting cards from the other player or drawing from the deck, they set those cards aside and the rank is no longer in play. The game ends when either player no longer has any cards in their hand. The player with the most books wins. go-fish provides instructions as to what input it accepts. BUGS
The computer cheats only rarely. BSD
