Hey, Dale,

 

We also bob for apples in Brazil but I guess a more common game here would be one where, instead of a bowl / bucket of water, we would stick our face / head into a bowl of flour trying to find a prize or something that leads to a prize. By the way, that made me think of a word that I don't know if there's an equivalent in English: Gincana. Is there an English equivalent to that or do you guys use the word "competition" in that context?

 

Thanks,

Rick

 

PS: Dale, I'm looking forward to your next AmE Slang. The previous ones have helped us all a great deal! No question about it.
