Friday fun: Shooting games at the fair

The Wisconsin State Fair started yesterday, I’m hoping to go with my family over the weekend. There is usually at least one shooting game in the midway.

Do you play the shooting games at the fair?

  • Yes, of course!
  • Yes, who doesn’t want a cheap stuffed animal?
  • Maybe, depends on the prizes.
  • No, they’re rigged!
  • No, their sights are way off.
  • No, no one needs to know I can shoot.

Here’s an entertaining older article from the Waco Tribune-Herald about gun games at the fair:

What is your favorite game at the fair?


As the article pointed out I do stay away from the shoot out the star game. I’ve never seen anyone win at that. A small speck of red and you lose. Games at the fair are fun and that is what it’s about having fun. Just don’t fall into spending all of your money on them. That leaves none left for all the tasty treats like elephant ears, funnel cakes, and deep fried everything under the sun. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


I would have preferred just a No answer. Even as a kid I did not play the games. Heck, I don’t even do the rides. Must be a fuddy duddy!! I go to look at the animals and the tractor pulls.

I actually just purchased a game target that was in the magazine.

I purchased the 52 card target from QuickDraw. Going to be using them at an upcoming picnic for the club to play and they came yesterday, and the included a few of their normal game targets.
