Tablecloth pulling meets arcade game

From Japan comes The Tablecloth Hour, which challenges players to yank a real piece of tablecloth from under a virtual place setting.

Japanese ingenuity for taking the mundane out of the everyday strikes again. This time, it's The Tablecloth Hour--an arcade game recently set up for a test run at the Taito station in Shibuya, Tokyo. It challenges players to quickly yank a small piece of real tablecloth from under a virtual place setting.

While it's debatable whether this game is quirky enough to catch the fancy of busy Tokyo commuters, those planning to impress their dates with real tablecloth pulling can get practice runs on this arcade machine without incurring more than the cost of a token per try.
