About Arcade Claw Machines
The standard arcade claw machine presents a special kind of challenge, the sort that infuriates you to the point of actually wanting to feed it more money. For some, it is the unavoidable siren song of the claw machine plush animals that drives them to spend dollar after dollar to win a toy you can buy at the store down the street. For others, the allure of the candy claw machine proves too much to resist, as it is common knowledge that "candy won" trumps both "candy earned" and "candy purchased" on the scale of effort-based deliciousness. Rather than stake out the closest arcade claw machine at the local bowling alley or amusement park, do yourself a favor and invest in one of the many fine machines you can find offered in the vast inventories of reliable sellers on eBay. Choose a small, 12-inch by 12-inch table-top machine you can fill with your favorite candy and challenge yourself to capture your treat any time your sweet tooth calls, or make a bold statement with a full-sized machine featuring directional buttons or a joystick tucked in the corner of your man cave. Just make sure you have room for a 30-inch by 36-inch square game over 6 feet tall. Given the opportunity to practice at your leisure, you can earn back that lifetime of pocket change in no time flat.
