    No, but I think there was some article on Yahoo today about how to beat the machine. Didn't read it though.

    Little Chicken is great at that. Give her 2 or 3 bucks and Buffalo Wild Wings and she comes back with a shitty stuffed toy worth 15 cents every time. :party:

    They are rigged to grab softly and jerk hard so they drop what ever you grab.

    One of the discovery shows did a piece on the claw machines. There is a vacuum release that kicks in that allows the claws to slide open xx out of xxx times. Best way to win is to watch a bunch of people lose then start to play.

    I drove by Busch stadium in St. Louis yesterday and thought about stopping and urinating on it.

    There are a couple bars/restaurants down here that have lobster tanks with the claw. If you can grab a lobster they will cook it for you for free. 3 bucks per try.

    My kids, now in their 20's, never really got into them; nor did I.

    I do like watching people play them though; especially when you see someone who is good at winning stuff.
