Happy Families is a traditional British card game usually with a specially made set of picture cards, featuring illustrations of fictional families of six, most often based on occupation types. The object of the game is to collect complete families, and the game is similar to Go Fish.


The purpose of the game is to regroup the highest number of complete families possible.

The player whose turn it is asks another player for a specific card. If the asked player has the card, he gives it to the requester and the requester can then ask any player for another card. If the asked player does not have the card, it becomes his turn and he asks another player for a specific card. Play continues in this way until no families are separated among different players. The player with the most cards wins.

One of the rules states that a player cannot ask for a certain card to deceive any player if he does not have a card in the set he is asking for.
