This is a British drinking game called fuzzy duck. It's a good word type
game which becomes much harder when pissed. The rules are quite
straightforward , the players sit round a table or in a circle on the
floor. Each participant has a drink in front of them, we like to do this
using small glasses each with a very strong shot in it.
The play commences as follows:
one player is nominated to start.
They either say "FUZZY DUCK" or "DUCKY FUZZ" the choice is theirs.
If the first player said "FUZZY DUCK" then the player on their left
can either say "FUZZY DUCK" or "DOES HE".
If the first player said "DUCKY FUZZ" then the player on their
right can either say "DUCKY FUZZ" or "DOES HE".
If the second player in either direction repeats the first player
then the play passes on to the next person round the table. They
can say "FUZZY DUCK"/"DUCKY FUZZ" following the second player or
The phrase "DOES HE" reverses the play around the group ie
switches clockwise for anti-clockwise or vice-versa. It also
has the effect of changing the phrase so "DUCKY FUZZ" becomes
"FUZZY DUCK" and vice-versa.
Two people can say "DOES HE" one after another, this has the effect
that the play carries on in the same direction as before and with
the same phrase.
There are only two more rules, you cannot say the same phrase twice
in one session. If you said "DUCKY FUZZ" last time and the order
of play means that you should say "DUCKY FUZZ" again you must say
"DOES HE" so reversing the direction of play and the phrase.
If anyone makes any form of mistake in pronunciation or in the
order of play,ie saying the same phrase twice, then a forfeit
must be payed. Normally this consists of downing your shot in one,
any mistakes in carrying out the forfeit can lead to further
O.K it sounds complicated but it isn't to bad if you try it. Below is a
simulated game between five people (number 1 to 5 in a clockwise
direction), player 1 starts.
Player 1. "FUZZY DUCK"
2. "FUZZY DUCK"
3. "FUZZY DUCK"
4. "DOES HE"
3. "DUCKY FUZZ"
2. "DOES HE"
3. "FUZZY DUCK"
4. "FUZZY DUCK"
5. "FUZZY DUCK"
1. "FUZZY DUCK".....Player one is at fault for saying the same
phrase twice. They should have said "DOES HE".
The game works best if you start a session slowly and gradually build up
speed. A session lasts until someone makes a mistake. A small tip watch
your pronunciation "DUCKY FUZZ" can quite easily become "F**K HE DOES"
and "FUZZY DUCK" becomes "DOES HE F**K".
