A friend was telling me about the “Duck Game” that was played at the Lao Wat Phou festival. It’s a simple game that the whole family can play. All you need is a pond with some ducks, and two players or more. There was a concert happening at the Wat Phou festival at the announcer commentated the participants playing the duck game. The contestants had to go to the pond of ducks and grab one. Whoever grabbed a duck won the game. You couldn’t use a slingshot or anything to kill the ducks, you had to try and sneak up behind them. Several people gave the game a go but nobody won. In Sydney the new gladiators TV game show is being heavily promoted. I think I would rather watch an hour of the duck game being played.
