It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, you've played some variation of whack-a-mole at some point, and it probably left you feeling pretty darn good. Thanks to the Personalized Whac-A-Mole Game seen above, you can deliver a proper beatdown to who, or what, ever you'd like from the comfort of your home!
What sets this Whac-a-Mole game apart from any other we've seen is the fact that it's disguised as a typical bookshelf when not in use. Even better, and the moles can be substituted with molded caricatures of anyone you take a photo of – former co-workers, politicians, siblings, your mother-in-law or even the kids!
Just like the classic whack-a-mole you played in the arcade, this unit has five heads popping up at random while you attempt to lay the smackdown with a padded leather mallet. Every hit earns you points and scores are displayed on a three-digit LCD screen. Speakers provide authentic sound effects, and a storage shelf at the top leaves room for any beverages you might need to stay in the game.
The exterior of the cabinet is walnut veneer with a hardwood inlays, and the hidden game is revealed by simply pushing a button on the included remote control, which will definitely earn you some extra credit with the guests.
Unfortunately for most of us, all of the awesome described here comes at a price. Available from now from Hammacher Schlemmer, the Personalized Whac-a-Mole Game will set you back a cool $35,000.
