SHOCK TO YOUR SYSTEM
buzz
Consider the Lightning Reaction Game:
Start by removing a futuristic joy stick from the base. Hit the center dome and a red light will start flashing, suspenseful music will be playing and then get ready to be a Quick Draw McGraw.

Why?

When the dome turns green you need to press your joy sticks red button. The last player to do so will get SHOCKED!!
Judging from the hackneyed prose, I'd say the ad copywriter has played a few too many losing rounds of this game.

Where was this shiny model ten years ago, when we could have used it for a few supercharged rounds of Three-Man? Alcohol and shock therapy--now that's a college experience.
