I decided to brave the manure, mullets and *-on-a-stick this weekend and swung by the state fair. It seems like every time I go there are a couple people walking around all day with enormous stuffed animals, presumably won through some feat of basketball tossing or ring flinging. Enormous. Impossible to win enormous. Paid carnival employees walking around with giant stuffed bears tricking innocent folks into thinking it’s actually possible to win enormous. Like, such as, the Iraq.

Anyone who’s attempted the balloon dart throw or the coin toss knows how rigged these games are.

What if you knew a few tricks that could increase your odds? For those of you who’d think about climbing back on that Jacob’s Ladder and giving it another try, here’s a guide to beating a few of the more popular carnival games.
