Before you play Players make two cards for each word on the verb list. How to play 1. Player 1 shuffles the cards and deals seven cards to each player. The dealer places the rest of the cards facedown in a draw pile.
2. Player 2 asks another player for a card that goes with a card

Player 2 already has. For example, if Player 2 has take, he or she could ask for took or taken.
3. If the other player has the card, he or she must give it to Player 2.

Fish! Player 2 draws a card from the pile. Then the next player takes a turn.

with all three verb forms. The game is over when there are no more cards in the draw pile.
