Play-2-Learn Go Fish: Catch and Release your Anger is designed to help children manage anger in a thoughtful and non-aggressive way. Each card will offer a scenario where someone has done something as a result of an angry situation. Each player will be given the opportunity to reflect on the scenario and discuss whether or not it was a good way to handle angry feelings. There are cards which also offer techniques to diffuse anger and to help deal with angry feelings in a more productive way.

The game plays like classic Go Fish. There are two decks of 50 cards in each game one for grades 5-8 year old children and the other for children 8-11 year old. It differs from classic go fish in that players must answer a question before they can accept a requested card.Instead of the usual number and picture cards, the cards have fun pictures of fish and fish names. For example, a player may ask, Do you have any Henry Herrings?If the player receives a Henry Herring card, the player reads the question on the card aloud and answers it.All questions are open ended.If the player did not have any Henry Herrings, the player would say, go fish, and then the first player would take a card from the ocean (extra cards in the centre of the table).A rules sheet and facilitator guidelines are included.

Suitable for children 5 to 8 years old; one game can be played in about 20 minutes. 2 – 5 participants.
