I know this game in Serbian but I don't know what's it called in English.

It's a game where you collect cards from the table if you have a card in your hand that is a sum of some of the cards on the table. For example: if there are cards 2, 5, 3 and 6 on the table, and I have a card with number 10 in my hand, I can take the cards 2, 5 and 3 from the table together with my card with number 10, because 2 + 5 + 3 = 10. And so this game is usually best played with more than 2 players, but it can be played with even 2. The player or team with most cards wins.

What's this game? Thanks.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

There are any number of "fishing" games you could be thinking of. More than likely, the version you know is unique to your country and would be known in English by... whatever name you call it locally, transliterated if necessary. Pagat lists a Serbian fishing game Tablic.

By all means write up a set of rules and send it to Pagat. It takes him a couple months to respond, but he's thorough in his research and a really nice guy.

Its a great website!

Scopa is a traditional Italian game in this vein (which may have crossed borders).
