ABOUT THIS GAME

You Wish, much like Go Fish, is a matching and collecting card game. Mix in a few action cards like skip, ask again and draw two to name a few and you've got an interesting game. Uniquely illustrated with hand drawn magical creatures, you'll be impressed at the nicely done cards that come with the card game. If you can collect the most sets of characters, then you'll win the game.

You Wish has a couple different options for playing which makes this game great for just about anyone. It is portable and can easily be taken with you and won't take long to play. Playing with up to eight players can be a lot of fun and an option to play with just two is included in the game rules. See what we thought of the game below and grab a copy of You Wish today.

Board Game Capital's Review (2020-09-13):
You Wish You Wish is a fun, simple card game that anyone can play. It uses familiar game rules and mimics that of Go Fish and Uno to name a few. Players are attempting to collect the most sets of cards. Action cards like skip, ask again, draw two and some others make the game a little more interesting. The twist on the regular game of Go Fish that we liked that You Wish included is you give all the cards you have of what is being asked. Just because someone hands over two cards still doesn’t mean they’ve collected all four. If you have the last remaining card, you can sneak in and steal the other three. We really enjoyed this.

We mentioned this above but this is a simple card game. Not one that takes a long time to learn or one that takes a lot of strategy. The cards are illustrated in a very unique, hand drawn, magically mystical style. Similar to poker cards, a smaller illustration in the corner of the card of what the card is makes it nice to see in your hand (and you might get a lot of cards in your hand). The action cards look a little different than the rest of the deck. We thought they didn’t quite match up and seem a little rushed (some with words only). While they are simple and do their job, following the mystical theme a little more might have been a bit nicer. They also don't have a corner icon so they get lost in your hand.

You WishThe rules are easy to understand but have no illustrations. The rules are easy enough that you really don’t need pictures but seeing them always helps visualize more. It also breaks up the sea of words. The rules are also on a nice folded glossy piece of paper that actually fits in the tuck box. We felt a little book would have been better but not a huge deal. Honestly, this is a very nit-picky thing but we thought we’d throw it out there. The FAQ section was nice.

We liked the game. It’s fun asking for some of the cards in the deck like Cyclops, Fairies, Genies and Leprechauns. Younger kids can even play a fun game of memory with this game. You can also take out the action cards and play a normal game of Go Fish (You Wish). There are a few options on how to play which we also liked and makes this little card game quite versatile. In all, if you’re after a simple card game and you like Go Fish (but feel a little silly playing such a childish game) You Wish is a step up and will fill that desire.
