This fun pool game is similar to the game H-O-R-S-E, but its aquatic. We’d call it S-E-A-H-O-R-S-E, but that game would be unbearably long. The only highly expensive prerequisite for F-I-S-H game is a pool. You can purchase a basketball and a hoop with a net for somewhere between $45 to $150. The length of the game will depend on how many kids are playing, but expect it to last at least 10 minutes. It’s a good game for ages 6+.

Material Needed:

  1. a pool
  2. a basketball
  3. a hoop with a net near the edge of the pool or in the pool


Just like H-O-R-S-E, you should start with the birthday kid making a shot and getting the ball through the hoop. If anyone misses the shot, then that kid gets a letter. A child is out of the game when they get all four letters.

If the original shooter misses the shot, then they go to the back of the line. The child next in line should create the next shot for everyone to try to match. Repeat until you have a clear winner.
