The card game “Go Fish” isn’t named that way because it has anything to do with fish. Its name is inspired by the act of “fishing” another card out of the pile when the other player doesn’t have the card you’re looking for. But in Iceland, Go Fish is literally about fish – at least if you buy this deck.
Artist Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson created this quirky deck of cards that’s been covered with images of a diverse range of aquatic species. And the cards don’t just teach you to identify the fish, it teaches you how to prepare and cook them. You know the old saying “give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day; teach him to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime?” That’s what these cards are all about – or at least teaching him how to cook fish.
You can reel in a deck of these literal Go Fish cards over at the Reykjavik Corner Store for $14.90(USD).
