    Just picked one up today! Gotta get some friends to help move it in the house.

    Excellent! I, too, am eager to get some owner feedback/owner reviews. You could be the first.

    It's great! Super fun, and the Bluetooth ability is a great feature.

    There are 4 different background music themes. And 4 different SFX packages you can mix and match. and adjust individual volumes.

    and YES! there is an attract mode you can set up. Were it does lights and sounds and will play itself. all user configurable.

    it also has a clock, alarm clock of you want. bluetooth support. and 6 usb ports.

    Basically I dialed it in so it plays great. Much better than the videos and the ones I played at shows. That seem to have had a bit of control lag.

    A very good manual with troubleshooting tips. Parts breakdown and wiring diagrams. In the 33 page operations manual. Everything you would expect to get.

    And it seems built really well. Very solid.
    I'm on the honeymoon phase obviously, but I'm happy with the purchase.

    Thanks! Great review, looking very! forward to it!! Wil be a great addition for the whole family I believe
    Cheers, Peter

    #54 4 months ago

    Yes, thanks for the review.

    Also, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could upload an attract mode video.

    #55 4 months ago

    Got an update on spare parts.

    "The units will ship with a spare fuse and a suction cup for removing the glass."

    So, not much included as far as spare parts, but parts can be ordered through your distributor.

    #56 4 months ago

    I haven't looked at one up close, but the belting and stuff all appears pretty standard and easy to source.

    #57 4 months ago

    I want a bar height version. Korea is getting one so maybe we will to.

    #58 4 months ago

    Had my friend over today with his 8 year old.
    Then had a blast playing it. And now they want one.

    #59 4 months ago

    New MAP pricing going into effect w/shipping costs built in. $3499 shipped.

    Bottom line is pretty much the same, but no more need for individual shipping quotes. Same price now whomever you call.

    And the unfortunately the $100 Pinside discount is going away. Today is the last day for that.

    Cool video from the inventors shows the making of the first working prototype

    #61 4 months ago

    Had one of these, Very disappointed. Tore it apart to see how it worked,

    #62 4 months ago

    First Person view of one of the first games played. Pumped up the speed a bit and not connected Spotify yet in this movie!
    Love the game!! Grrrreat sound via Bluetooth )) and fun!

    I will do an expended review later. Thought to share this first. Job well done from the designers!!!
    Thanks

    Could probably build some type of riser that this unit can seat into and play stand up also.

    #65 4 months ago

    The drawings I've seen for the coin-op version show a standing-height table. It's coming soon. Price point will be higher.

    I paid for for the coin op in my Kickstarter pledge, I guess we`ll have to see how it works out
    Can`t wait for this thing!!!

    These are now in stock. Order and ship same day!

    Our promo video is in final editing. Will post soon.

    #73 3 months ago

    We're picking ours up tomorrow. Looking forward to getting it set up!

    #74 3 months ago

    Well, this is a bit of a bummer. Out of the box, it looks like this.

    IMG_6236 (resized).jpg

    Additionally, no manuals, no power cable. No hint how to open it, and no obvious latches or anything to push up the glass.

    We'll see how BBO handles this. (I ordered before Norcal got signed up as a distributor).

    Wow, good luck man. Been waiting for my KS for 1.5 years. Hope it comes ready to go with proper package.

    PM sent. We’ll make it right.

    #77 3 months ago

    Thanks Bryce. I appreciate the nudge, even if this wasn't your problem to solve .

    Got the call just now, just a bit over an hour since they've opened up. We apparently got the wrong box (the demo box). They're gonna get back to me on how to make the logistics work, but it sounds like BBO is on it. Shit happens, it's how it's handled when it happens. And so far, BBO's stepping up to the plate to take care of things.

    Much better. BBO came out, brought the brute squad, loaded/unloaded, and this is looking like the glorious piece of art it should be, and they did it in <4 hours from when they opened after I filed the ticket.

    Always good to add some variety to the game room. Possible Christmas gift for the whole family. With units on hand we can now do same day shipping if payment is received early enough in the day. I'm at $3499 shipped. Credit card is ok.

    Finally got mine dragged upstairs and set up. It works! Had to dial the sound back a bit.

    Has anyone figured out the Bluetooth part? I don’t see in the manual how to enable pairing.

    #83 75 days ago

    Just look for the game' Bluetooth signal on your phone and select it. Pretty sure it's as simple as that.

    Here's a short promo film we did recently from my game room. Good times had by all! Not too late to get one in time for Christmas. We have units ready for immediate shipment.

    #85 37 days ago

    I bought one of these with the matching stools and the family is loving it. Everyone that comes over is amazed. Great conversation piece and a really fun game for all skill levels. Love the attract mode.

    #86 37 days ago

    Happy to demo ours in Tracy CA.

    #87 37 days ago

    To the guys that have these already, is the pace fast enough? The videos I’ve seen look a little slow for my taste but perhaps it’s fine in person when you have to react. Can you speed it up at all or could you guys share more video of gameplay?

    Thanks

    The speed is adjustable. 5 settings I believe.

    #89 37 days ago

    You would think for $3500 you would get both of those stools included! I actually liked it when I played it at Allentown.

    Great news! UNIS debuted the new commercial versions of Pong at CES last week and I am now able to post pricing and begin taking orders! Here's some press coverage from the event. Sounds like they were a big hit.

    https://thenextweb.com/gaming/2019/01/10/this-crowdfunded-pong-table-might-be-the-coolest-thing-at-ces/

    https://www.cnet.com/news/this-modern-pong-table-at-ces-2019-is-better-than-it-has-any-right-to-be/

    UNIS really stepped it up with the light show on these commercial versions. Sure to garner lots of attention. And without the need for stools on each side, these larger commercial versions should take up less overall floor space than the Coffee Table version w/stools.

    ARCADE VERSION:

    $4299 + shipping

    Considered standing height at 32" tall. A bit short for me, but I'm 6'5". Should be fine for most. Location ready w/coin mechs & ticket dispenser. Maybe my favorite version.

    P6Ho1j8X (resized).jpeg

    JtFl9bkW (resized).jpeg

    COCKTAIL VERSION:

    $4499 + shipping

    Ideal for bars & barcades. Adjustable height and built in cup holders. Full glass top. Location ready with coin mechs and DBA slot. DBA maybe included, but still need to confirm. No ticket dispenser. USB ports for phone charging.

    Something I'd like to add regarding the pricing. This product has MAP pricing, so there's no need to price shop! We cannot undercut each other. So, order from whomever you'd like.

    Coffee Table version is still $2999 + shipping

    I can't speak for everyone, but I am not collecting sales tax yet for out-of-state buyers. I am also happy to accept credit card payments at no additional charge.

    I have the Coffee Table version in stock and ready to ship. ETA for availability on the commercial versions is March. I am currently taking reservations on those with a refundable deposit.

    PM me with any questions or to initiate your order.

    Found some good game play video with all 3 versions, courtesy of Arcade Heroes. Which is your favorite version?

    Any other Kickstarter backers get an email about the first batch of US games around Jan 6th? I got one that said to be expecting an invoice or update shortly and then nothing since, including when I emailed them about it a week later.

    Here's hoping this doesn't turn into a Heighway-esque scenario where they decide to just sell the games at retail for as long as possible instead of shipping to backers...

    When you backed the project during the Kickstarter did you get the coin-op version or home version?

    Quoted from 1iblind:

    Home version. Originally down for the plain black but told them awhile ago that I would accept the classic logo to speed things up.

    Coincidentally, it looks like i may have received the invoice late last night.
