Japanese Fish Scooping GameExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 — 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM EDT

Are you ready to accept the challenge of Goldfish Scooping and maybe take home a new friend?

Goldfish scooping is coming to the University of Waterloo.

Goldfish scooping (金魚すくい, 金魚掬い Kingyo-sukui) is a
traditional Japanese game in which a player scoops goldfish with a special scooper. It is also called, "Scooping Goldfish", "Dipping for Goldfish" or "Snatching Goldfish". "Kingyo" means goldfish in Japanese and "sukui" means scooping.

The rules:

Each person plays individually. The basic rule of the game is that the player must use a paper scooper called a "poi" to scoop goldfish out of a pool and into a bowl. The poi can tear easily and therefore players must play with care and speed.  A player can continue the playing the game with a torn poi but when the poi is completely broken or incapable of scooping properly, the game is over.

The Federation of Students is hosting Goldfish Scooping on May 13, 2015 for Waterloo students who are up to the challenge - some lucky winners may go home with a goldfish!
