How To Beat Carnival Games
Would you believe that some carnivals go out of there way to make it harder for you win their fabulous prizes? Really, it’s true, they do! I don’t know of any carnivals in particular but if you happen to find yourself near a carnival midway sometime in the near future and some Jack Wagon with a bullhorn insults your family tree because you won’t spend a buck or two trying to win a Justin Bieber shaving mirror well take heart. I have some tips that just might tip the scale of winning in your general direction. We’ve got tips on ring toss, climbing the rope ladder, the balloon darts, the shooting games and many more of your carnival favorites. There are no guarantees just like there is no impropriety implied in this narrative toward any particular carnival company, its games or hard working employees.
The balloons are under-inflated, and the dart tips are dull. Forget accuracy and throw the dart as hard as you can. Most people aim for the middle, so the game operators will often hide the “good prize” tags behind balloons on the outside edges.
I usually just save my money for the delicious carnival food. I love a big smoked turkey leg, a corndog with mustard and a funnel cake with enough white powder sprinkled on it to make Charlie Sheen take notice. Have fun if you see any carnivals around the area any time soon! (wink)
