The restaurant doesn't offer lobster otherwise, so the game is a fun way to strive for a meal that would otherwise cost at least $15, said Jorge Cruz, 33, who has tried it a dozen times."

4 The Love Of Animals

Problem-solving skills are as good for your dog as they are for you, and it’s always a delight to see your canine companion beam with pride when they have “won” their game.

A bored puppy is an unhappy puppy, and possibly a destructive puppy.
