your memory takes you.

The arcade plays notes and lights the matching game buttons.

To answer correctly, "repeat" the notes by pressing the same buttons in
the same order.

If you progress and successfully repeat the maximum 40-note sequence, the
arcade plays a special winner's tune!

If you play an incorrect note, the arcade makes a buzzing sound, lights up
the correct button, then the game is over.

REPEAT Scoring

When the game is over, the arcade tells you your score by flashing one of
its game buttons, as shown in the following chart.

An enemy submarine enters your territorial waters. You are tasked by the
high command to track down and destroy this submarine.

Fire a "torpedo" by pressing a button where you suspect the submarine is
"hiding." If the button flashes and beeps, the submarine is on the same
row (up/down or left/right) as the button you've pressed. If you score a
direct hit, the arcade plays a triumphant victory tune!

The arcade gives you three torpedoes to sink the sub. If you miss with
all three, the correct button flashes and a buzzer sounds, then the game
is over.

Good luck, captain!

enough, you "catch the mole." The arcade sounds a short beep and adds one
"mole point" to your score.

Go on - catch as many as you can!

If a player bet on that button, he/she wins the bet. The dealer pays each
player for a winning bet as shown on the game board and in the following
