Ever played a crane game? (Plush catcher arcade machine)

I did an interview with a hardcore claw machine player; you know the things, plushies in a box that you have to pick with a robotic arm.

This chap owns his own machine, practices, knows all the tips and tricks to win etc. It doesn’t sound like should be interesting, but actually is; for example even if you pick up a toy, you might not win it. The machine might be rigged. (Thankfully they aren’t selling retailer-specific claws. Yet.)
