Ed Fey, Sr. Inventions Duck Range

Ed Fey's main arcade at Playland in San Francisco was near a shooting gallery. This would give him the inspiration to make a coin-operated version. His original range had one gun and one row of traveling ducks. Later he built two player games with two guns and two rows of ducks.

In 1926 Ed Fey was listening to a world' champion boxing match. He imagined that a coin-operated fight game would make a great arcade piece.
