Go Whitebait Card Game


Out of stock

Amber McEwan has taken her passion for New Zealand's native freshwater fauna in a new direction; creating an fun and educational card game. Making up a standard pack; her Go Whitebait cards are not only beautifully illustrated; but can be used just like a normal pack of cards.

How to play...
How to play Go Whitebait

Each player is dealt 7 cards; which they hold in a closed hand. The rest of the cards are placed in a stack in the middle facing down.

The youngest player starts; then turns proceed in a clockwise direction.

Each turn starts with a question to a player of their choice: e.g. “do you have a forest pool?”

If the player does have that card; they must give hand it over; at which point the person whose turn it is can lay down any pairs they choose. The turn then moves on.
If the player does not have that card; they say “go whitebait!”; and the person whose turn it is picks up a card from the pile. The turn then moves on.
The only time a player can lay down pairs is during their turn; after they have asked their question. Jokers can take the place of any card. The game is won when a player has all 5 pairs laid down in front of them.

Other ways to play: the cards can also be used as a memory match game; and because they have the standard suits of a normal pack of cards you can play any other card game with these; if you ever get tired of Go Whitebait!
