CoC beat me to what I was going to say.

But since E.Q. Taft brought it up... I actually played a version of "wheel of fish" in Norway. Our guide made a wheel out of a paper plate with a different fish written in each segment. You had to eat the fish you landed on. Most were ordinary ones like canned tuna, salmon, etc. But then there was the surströmming*. I had to eat the surströmming . To give you an idea, I found that link by Googling "stinky Swedish fish". All the results were about surströmming. The taste was really just extremely salty, but I just couldn't get past the smell.

*Which is really more Swedish than Norwegian; I think she got it in Sweden before coming to Norway.
