How Not Your Grandma’s Go Fish Was Born
Not Your Grandma’s Go Fish was the first game in the Not Your Grandma’s Collection that our family created. My 8-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son had spent weeks playing Go Fish and had gotten bored. In order to energize things a little, I asked my daughter if she wanted to help make an even better game. She immediately said she would make the best go fish game ever in the history of the world. Yep. She has a flair for the dramatic. Well, she backed it up, and dreamt up an all new way to play - with new (much cooler) fish, tons of twists to make it way more multi-dimensional, and other elements that completely change the game play. With a little parental supervision, and some awesome game play testing with our friends from Utah, it may have just become the best go fish game ever in the history of the world! With all the changes, we couldn’t just call it “new” Go Fish, and calling it the best go fish game ever in the history of the world seemed a bit long; thus, we deemed it “Not Your Grandma’s Go Fish.” And with that name, the idea to create tons of amazing new games loosely based on classics was born.
