Game: "Sucker Fish" (upfront challenge)

Quick upfront game to start off your night or  your next event!

- 2 Fish Bowl or if don't have a fish bowl 2 glass mixing bowl will work
- 2 straws
- 2 plates
- 2-3 cans of sardines or anchovies

Fill the bowl all the way to the top with water dump equal amount of whole fish into the bowl.  On "Go" the 2 players using only their straws will have to suction/ suck as many fish as they can out the the bowl and drop them onto a plate.  The first person to finish or the person with the most fish at the end of the assigned time (1:00?) wins!  No stabbing allowed.

Slightly gross, as people will end up sucking up disgusting water in the process.  Quick ran-dumb fun!  If you feel like getting all spiritual about it, tie it into a lesson on "being fishers of men" or another fish related lesson!
