    I picked up a Scoregasm Master yesterday from VFW. Wow, fun multiplayer game.
    Last year I picked up an Ice Cold Beer and put more plays on Scoregasm than ICB in the year I've owned it!

    Big fan of the artwork and sound package. You can also change out all the music and sound effects pretty easily.

    Getting the ball in the top hole makes that ball reusable, so no fear of using a red ball.

    So far between my fiancee and me, the top score is 12,500. She's real good at bumping the balls down using the Scoregasm hole.

    Excellent dollar game. My scores are across the board, so it will be fun inviting newbs to play and I wont beat them everytime.

    Packaging and documentation is top notch too!

    I like how much effort they've put in this this April Fool's joke, even getting "customers" to post reviews like it's a real product.

    It really does look like a ton of fun. I don't have the right house/friends/parties to make it something I'd really want, but I can totally see how it would be a hit with groups of people.

    I'll give the thing this much, it's some kick ass futuristic music

    I played it there and maybe I didn't know what I was doing, but no sound, no scoring, nuthin'.

    Sound is just continuously looping music. Several choices IIRC.
    Scoring is add it up yourself. Lets you know when you are too drunk to play.

    I don't work for Pinball Life or Day One Pinball. I'm just a home collector. I decided to review it because the reviews just didn't exist out there.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Yup, love the different music. I'm probably going to add some other music to it eventually.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    How many points did the girlfriend need to reach a scoregasm?

    There's a Scoregasm hole at the top. It pushes other balls down in specific holes. She was very happy with around a 11,700~ score.

    It's unique and likely he won't make more than 30. I'm just saying that it is more fun then my Ice Cold Beer.

    Cool review, I still have to see the gameplay video of it.

    Go to one of your machines with the power off and plunge a ball. Do that 9ish more times and that's pretty much it.

    How do you change the music? Can I put my own music in?

    #18 4 years ago

    I too played this game several times this past weekend. I liked it, the music was ok but the game was fun, different, I love the Tilt on this game, the ball baring perched upon a pedestal if it falls of it's a tilt.
    I think this would be a great game to have as a Dollar game or even a drinking game. I liked it . it does require skill and learning how hard / soft to shoot the balls . If you have not played it give it a chance, there is more to it than meets the eye..

    Does it calculate your score and release balls at the end?

    #20 4 years ago

    OP, what was the mentality of buying this game vs getting a $2000 DMD game like WCS, No Fear, etc. I've had a really hard time understanding who the market for this game is.

    #21 4 years ago
    Quoted from BackFlipper:

    How do you change the music? Can I put my own music in?

    In the manual it explains how to do this. Must be in wav format and renamed to a specific format, I believe it goes on the sd card.

    Quoted from ZenTron:

    Does it calculate your score and release balls at the end?

    No, manual calculation is involved. Also manual releasing of the balls is involved.

    Quoted from Richthofen:

    Look at my collection. The last thing I need is an unplayed No Fear. Arcade games take up space. Fun games like this and Ice Cold Beer is worth it to me when multiplayer is considered.

    #22 4 years ago

    I like the idea of having some very different types of games to play in a collection. That being said, this game is just missing the things I love most about pinball. No great theme, no great artwork, and no great mechanical action (not to mention a ruleset building toward goals.) But it's an interesting skill game (requiring perfect plunges and nudging.) I'll take Ice Cold Beer for 1k please.

    #23 4 years ago

    I think you've gotta play it Tim.

    You said the Metallica art didnt do it for you either. Just keep that in mind plus its not about the every day play, its more about the multiplayer aspects.

    It's about the gambling. For me, it's just that. We love it at my office.

    It's 70s porn music.....Not joking. This is a fantastic $1 game with lots of friends and lots of drinks. Played one all afternoon at MGC. It was so crowded in the arcade hall, we just sat in the room and played this for $$$ and drank. Had a great time.

    Now, are you playing this by yourself in your basement?.....probably not. But it is a great party game.

    I am biased of course, but I think ScoreGasm is a great name for the kind of game that it is (let's call it a gentleman's bet device). Artwork is by John Youssi and I couldn't be happier with it! Mechanical action moves the balls down the center of the playfield when you load the proper holes and then hit the ScoreGasm hole. Rule set builds towards the goal of progressive scoring. There is a lot of strategy in knowing when to shoot what hole and where to play the red double scoring ball.

    I agree that a good game play video needs to be made of this game, but so far I just haven't been able to fit it in. It may still happen in the future though.

    All 6 musical tracks on the machine are original compositions from the composers who licensed them to us. 3 of the 6 songs were written specifically for the machine, such as the theme song *Keep Your Eye On The ScoreGasm Master". Three other songs were authorized for use by Scott Danesi (the composer).

    This game also has around 50 call outs ranging from silly to sexy. At first they were all sexy, but even we began to think it was a little over the top once we heard them 4 hours a day for several months in a row.

    This is a pin game. It is not a pinball machine. I understand one's urge to compare the two, but it really is apples and oranges. Pin games are *original pinball*. Pinball has progressed so far in the past 80 years that these 2 amusement devices have very little in common. Because of this there is no way to answer the question "Why buy this game instead of a used $2000 pinball machine?". If it's a pinball machine you are looking for, then the used $2000 pinball machine is for you. If you are looking for something different to your game room, then ScoreGasm just might be the ticket.

    Personally, I made this machine for two reasons: 1. Because me and my friends were playing the original more than we were playing pinball machines when we were together. 2. I wanted to make a game taking no deposits, gauging no interest, and announcing no announcements. I wanted to make an amusement device and THEN sell it. Crazy, I know.

    I will be the first to admit that the market for something like this is very small. We had no illusions about this going in. We also knew we most likely wouldn't break even at the end of the run; and we won't. But that's OK! It isn't always about the money. We didn't set out to dominate any market, or even be the competition to any existing amusement company.

    We have 12 left to sell and then we are done with this game forever. There's 7.4 billion people in the world, so finding 12 of them should be achievable .

    MAYBE next year we will find something else crazy to make, but we have no commitments to anything at the moment.

    Maybe 2070s porn music.

    EDIT: But as Terry just said there are diff'rent tracks so we are probably talking aboot diff'rent tunes.

    Main theme (Keep Your Eye On The ScoreGasm Master) was written by a person who has written for (modern) porn music in the past. It's got a funky, cheesy vibe, so I guess that makes it porn music-ish; perfect for this game!

    The other 5 songs sound completely different. Three of them are breakbeat songs, 1 a sort of SoF-ish theme called "Swords of Lionman", and the last one was written by a crazy keyboard/dj/mixer thing called the DJXII. It's called *Love Theme From ScoreGasm Master".

    #37 4 years ago

    If you have Spotify (or the like) you can listen to 2 of the 3 Scott Danesi's contributions as well. Just search his name and his album Component Breakdown will come up. The tracks on SGM are Get Ready To Wake Up and Symphony 95.

    #38 4 years ago

    I'm not sure if Scott's 3rd song, Manufacture, is available to listen to anywhere. Maybe Scott can chime in and provide a link.

    Looks like i need to make a video for the lionman thread.....

    Please do. That would be awesome.

    If you could go to this link below to get the Swords Of Lionman file then that would make my son really happy. That way his web page hit counter will increase. Check out his other songs too. He's 15 and loves writing tunes.

    Hey chad, that page seems to be acting up. Just an fyi. It loads some times, other times it says sorry, was not found.

    Hey Guys,
    The "Manufacture" track can be listened to and downloaded here:

    Glad you guys are enjoying this April Fool's joke. We put A LOT of work into it.

    There's a noticeable difference between MGC and VFW on the tilt mechanism. It tilted very easily at MGC. Terry said they improved the tilt mechanism so you can give a good nudge instead of being at risk. I like the tilt mech, it's original as far as I know.

    Quoted from PinChili:

    I'll take Ice Cold Beer for 1k please.

    I'll get what I paid for it, if not more. White Water and ICB I actively get "Want to sell that?"..

    Quoted from D1P:

    "Why buy this game instead of a used $2000 pinball machine?".

    I think if you could source, build and sell Scoregasm for 1,500 I think it would open the market up quite a bit. Cheaper than a decent pinball, slightly more than an em. Plus its brand new.

    Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

    Is it really an April Fools joke? I wanted one of these since it was announced.

    Quoted from huo:

    Actually, that type was used on several mechanical pins.

    #46 4 years ago

    Yes, announced on April fools day on purpose. The *joke* was that the machine was actually real; a sort of reverse April fools joke.

    As for the pricing; making 30 of anything is very expensive. If there was a market for 1000's of these we could retail them for $995.00 each. A world like this is never going to happen again though. The 1930's are gone forever.
