Leave it to gizmodo the screw things up. I knew as soon as I saw sponsorship, it was all over. So sad they allow this. The Santa Claw is dead.
Sorry, but I totally disagree. I think if you're playing the "claw" to seriously win a ball or something else, seriously, you're taking the whole thing way too, well, seriously.
I see what you're saying Robb, but when you repeatedly see the claw successfully pick up a wrapped box only to have a guy holding a beer reach in and swat it out before it can be dropped in the chute, and then give the middle finger to the camera, you can't help but feel frustrated. If they're staging this as a contest for publicity, and sending out actual prizes, they shouldn't allow people to interfere like that.
I agree with you that the person doing that IS obnoxious, and it shouldn't be allowed, but if it bothers you that much, stop playing the game. It's as simple as that.
I've played like 8 times this week and I had one game where my video didn't work and one game where that guy got in the way of my winnings...but you know what? I managed to have FUN with it every time.
Yes, I was bummed when that guy the other night knocked the ball I was about to win out of the way, but did it REALLY bother me? No, instead I went for the guy and tried to grab him!
You are in control of the world's largest claw....you have the upper hand! ATTACK THE DUDES!!!!!!
