There are Two Versions of Play in each Go Fish Game:
A. Go Fish
B. Collect the Cards
In Go Fish, players try to get "four of a kind" by finding all four cards in one category. In playing this game, players learn association and chronology. Players try to collect all four-of-a-kind cards from the following categories. The player who captures most sets wins.
In Collect the Cards, players try to guess the card based on three hints that are found on each card. This game helps students memorize important facts and teaches inductive thinking skills.
The booklet provides the teacher with a wide variety of games to teach Ancient history to kids in a one-on-one setting, in a family with kids of different ages, or in classrooms with 40 students. It includes short history explanations for all 48 American History Go Fish Games.
The card game has the following 12 categories:

Linda Hobar, Author of
Mystery of History series
... I am a sucker for games and I found some that I think are extraordinary... They are patterned after the vintage games of Concentration and Go Fish. I like these for the artistry, the simplicity and familiarity of the games, the historical value and perspective, and the reasonable price. Students using my series will easily identify most of Mr. De Gree's illustrated objects and places like Stonehenge, King Tut's golden mask, the Great Wall of China, and a Roman aqueduct. The "cards" for the Concentration/Memory Game are actually thick cardboard tiles, which are durable and easier for little ones to manipulate. The Go Fish card set gives you other game ideas that will be fun for all ages.
I could go on and on, because like I said, I'm a sucker for games and it's not easy to find quality ones for world history that even younger students can enjoy. I think the Classical Historian has done a great job. You may want to spice up your studies now, or save these for Christmas. Either way, I think they're great for review and the pure pleasure of having fun.
