NAME
       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 information 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.
