Hook a Duck for Hire


Hook-a-duck is one of our Traditional fairground stall games for hire. A number of rubber ducks are floated in a water trough. The ducks have metal rings fastened to their heads. Although the ducks appear identical, a chosen few bear a hidden mark on their base. Ducks with hidden marks are considered winning ducks, and those without are considered losing ducks.


The contestant is required to capture ducks using a pole with a hook at one end. Each captured duck is examined to reveal whether it is a winning duck or a losing duck.


The contestant is typically given three attempts per game. The number of winning ducks captured during the game corresponds to a prize: Three winning ducks is equivalent to a top prize; two winning ducks to a middle prize; and one winning duck to a low prize.


Best for outdoors due to water fun!
