I'm always impressed with people on the site to be able to know a game by a vague description. So does anyone know this one.

I remember playing, when I was a kid, a game my brother had. The games date was probally late 70's early 80's. It had to do with something having to do with a witchdoctor. One person would place, unseen, a peg into a hole on the board that would go inside and be hidden. The other player stabs pins into the board and if the peg is hit the witchdoctor pops out, turns alternate till someone losses.

Would be a neat "game" of sorts to play on the geek.

Every month someone finds a totally obscure game on the geek and writes a brief, vague description [maybe even in haiku fashion shake] and then the first person to guess the correct game gets geek gold.

Who wants to start 'er up?

in the sky i fly
parachutes i drop
through a scope i play



Also...if anyone actually can recall what this game was called I'd give 'em a nice wet kiss because I had it for years as a kid (6ish?) and loved the heck out of it.

Only other things i can think of:

You played by looking through a scope at a board that spun slowly and you had a (i think) helicopter on a rail that you'd move back and forth and drop parachutists (i think) into targets.
