    I don't think this counts as a real video game so I put it here. Anyone played this arcade game? At start 3 blocks move back and forth, and you have to stop them so that each block is supported by one below it. If you stop and there's no block below, you lose that block and have less blocks moving around, thus making it less likely to win. However there are points where you're forced to lose a block even if you got it perfect before. There are minor and major prizes, the minor prizes being some dollar store type stuff and the major being Nintendo DS's and iPods

    I can usually get to the second to last set but I hear it's rigged so that there has to be a certain number of plays before someone wins. Still, it's fun but it sucks up quite a bit of your tokens

    It is possible to win and they have videos but I think it's a bit unfair

    Yup...it's rigged to be extraordinarily difficult to get it to give out a major prize more than once every 300 or so plays. Good luck, though- that doesn't stop you from being player 300. Of course, I'm sure this varies according to the operator of the machine, who can probably set it to pay out more or less often.
