Title: Container-popping game

Abstract: A pressure-filled container-popping game is defined with pressure-filled containers that are positioned in a game play area behind various barriers. Each pressure-filled container has one or more prizes coupled to it. The barriers have openings or orifices which provides access to a corresponding pressure-filled container through the barrier. A player positions a moveable target arm using a game control attempting to align a piercing member attached to the target arm with a selected one of the orifices. When the player believes the piercing member is properly aligned, an attempt is triggered which causes the target arm to move the piercing member toward the selected orifice. If it is properly aligned, the piercing member passes through the orifice and impacts the corresponding pressure-filled container, popping it and sending the coupled prize or prizes falling into a prize chute. Otherwise, the piercing member impacts the barrier, ending the players game attempt.
