There have been many games devised that test reflexes and aim. Now, I have never seen it, but I shall not sell it more than I bought it, that there is one such game that involves spears and airborne cans of beer. If one misses, one is obliged to drink said fowl substance. And I have heard that there is one famous champion of this game who is so skilled, or so wary of drinking such shaken beer, or both, that she has never once been obliged to drink.
