Whac-A-Mole

Whac-A-Mole consists of a large, waist-level cabinet with five holes in its top and a large, soft, black mallet. Each hole contains a single wooden mole that moves up and down. Once the game starts, the moles will begin to pop up from their holes at random. The object of the game is to force the individual moles back into their holes by whacking them directly on the head with the mallet. Each mole you hit is worth 10 points and the first person to score 150 points is the winner!
