New Hampshire Man Loses Life Savings Playing Carnival Game

Most of us play a carnival game or two, and usually it results in a stuffed animal and your out a few buck, but this New Hampshire man decided that he wasn’t going home a loser. 

 

According to WBZ, Henry Gribbohm blew his entire life savings playing a carnival game, and all he has to show for it is this lousy stuffed banana with dreadlocks. All kidding aside, Gribbohm lost $2,600 playing a carnival game. He was trying to win an X-Box Kinect system, and said when he practiced the game it was easy, but when he started to play it seemed rigged.

After losing $300, he went home to get more money – $2,300 more –  and lost that too. He’s claiming he was conned by the carnival, and the game itself is under investigation. The man running the game gave Gribbohm back $600 after he complained.
