I'm excited to announce the new real-life Pong game is now in full production, with units shipping out and available for purchase! This is a fully-licensed, mechanical version of Pong that is very fun. I'm so enamored with it I joined up with the West Coast distributor to sell them, and I need a new job like a hole in the head. I already have a main business, a hobby business, and a kid on the way. But I couldn't help myself. This game is futuristic and fascinating and I haven't felt this kind of wonderment for a new game in ages. Despite being non-pinball, I'm sure it will appeal to many of you as well.
Rest assured these are not being built by Joe Blow in his basement. The maker is Universal Space, a leading manufacturer of amusement games with over 1000 employees. These will be sold through distributors only.
The cabinet is coffee-table sized, with hinged lids to cover the control panels when not in use and beer seal under the glass. It can go right in front of your couch.
The bats & ball float on magnets, with belts, pulleys and motors underneath the playing surface.
It can be played by 1 or 2 players, with multiple speed and difficulty settings. There are 4 USB ports for charging your devices, and a Bluetooth speaker for playing your favorite music with or without muting the game sounds.
I witnessed firsthand at the CAX show last month that this game is great for the whole family. Kids, spouses, everybody liked it. It's very approachable.
Here are some promo & game play videos:
As soon as our shipment arrives next month we plan to film a longer video highlighting features, settings, game play, etc. There are multiple speed & difficulty settings I am eager to explore. No paid actors, so apologies in advance for our average (at best) looks. It will be myself, a couple local pinheads, and maybe a couple kiddos.
Pricing (updated 9/5/18):
$3499 shipped. MAP pricing in effect. Same price whomever you call.
$300 deposit due now to reserve one of our units arriving next month (we have 40 inbound). Balance due when your game is about to ship. Deposit is refundable if you change your mind.

For any International orders, the best we can do at this time is ship anywhere in the lower-48 states to your Export Agent. Depending on your location, the distributors in Europe, Asia, or Australia might be a better option.
