The high striker or strongman game is a popular attraction at amusement parks and carnivals. Contestants use a mallet or hammer to hit a target in order to send a puck up to the top of the tower and ring the bell. Those who are able to ring the bell are rewarded with a prize. In the 1930s it was revealed that many high striker machines were rigged at carnivals in order to keep contestants from winning a prize.
