Galton board for power law distribution

Greetings!

Are there Galton boards that geenerate others distributions beside the
normal distribution? I've found one that generates a log-normal
distribution:

Indeed, I'm looking for a Galton board that generates a power law
distribution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_law).

Thanks in advance, Humberto
