Japanese Arcade Games

Japanese kids love arcade and video games and they have a huge variety to choose here from when looking for diversion. We recently spotted an unusual one...

You know those games with the metal grabber hands in the large glass tank? In the states, the big hand usually grabs from a pile of colorful and fluffy stuffed animals to the child's delight.

But here, we found one that grabs nothing other than-- Ritz Crackers!

Don't get me wrong, I love ritz crackers too... but it's a strange prize, right?

To answer your question about new challenges-- Yes, we tried to win the ritz crackers, but No, we were not successful.

I could just go buy some today at the commissary if I want them so badly, but that seems like a cop out now. I must win them by expertly moving the metal forklift hand!

That is too funny! Are Ritz cracker hard to find and a delicacy there?

That's what I thought at first too, but you can find them in the supermarkets...
