Redundancy = PRICELESS.

Efficiency and return of investment. These are pretty important terms for Biz-people. But I, the only class I took from the College of Business and Economics was ECO-001-Introdction to Economics, want to tweak them bit. Some Japanese guy came up with a crane game, where you dump 100 yen to challenge to crane a doll or recently, a gadget like NES.

Probably, a doll that you are about to scoop only costs 200 yen, but people do end up spending 500 yen to successfully get one. But it's fascination and fun that come along while sweating your hands off -- PRICELESS.


... and here comes new innovation. A crane game with ice cream.

The whole container is like a freezer, and it is sealed and kept -30C. Cold enough to sustain their shapes.

When it comes to difficulty, there are some levels.

If you are a beginner, you can try a tiny Pino ice cream. You think you can do better? Try a cup ice-cream or may be Haagen-Dazs.

Costs 100 yen for 1 try.
200 yens for 3 tries.

Check out my miserable try...
