Fishing games always go down well at parties and games evenings. This fishing game is quite easy to make. The fish hooks and fish mouths are made from paper clips. You could also make fish in two colors or make several different sea creatures, such as fish and starfish. Then players can see how many of each they can ‘catch’ in a given time. Another game might be to give each fish a value, adding the values at the end of the game to see which ‘catch’ is worth the most. This would introduce gamesmanship as each player goes for the highest value catch.
