Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Wish it was set for 5 ball play though. I'm pretty sure it was the first time I played it here.

Yeah, game is brutally hard. I'm not accustomed to the short flippers. I've been playing it for 3 weeks there I think.

#302 3 years ago

If anyone sees one around on the cheap, let me know ... I'll bring one over to NZ. I think it looks sweet!

#303 3 years ago

I'm going to try and play it next time when there aren't too many other games being played so I can hear the audio better. What I did hear sounded kind of low budget. And Red Fang seems to be constantly introduced, but is their music actually played?

The audio package is one of the things that makes WNBJM great. Perhaps someone who has a PBR in their home can shoot some video for us?

#305 3 years ago

Okay - had a chance to play again earlier today when things were much quieter at Shorty's and quickly discovered that Red Fang plays in the background throughout the entire game! (Oops)

I have a better overall appreciation of the game's sound now too. There are numerous unique callouts as would be expected, but one in particular that stuck with me was being called a "douche" after tilting at one point!

#306 3 years ago

Can anyone confirm a bug for me:

Ball gets stuck between flipper and middle post and you tilt. It seems you have to power cycle game and put a credit in for the flipper to work again.

#307 3 years ago

I went by the Logan Arcade in Chicago last week to see this machine, but they had it turned off. Stopped by again last night to find it on, and had a good time playing it for a while. A fellow let me know they're having a high score tournament on it on Friday:
https://www.facebook.com/events/1777773352489447/
Top 3 scores win prizes (each prize includes tickets to see Red Fang in Chicago in December).

#308 3 years ago

What Red Fang songs does it play?

#309 3 years ago

Got to play this at a show last weekend. The game looks awesome!!!! Wish they were sub 5K NIB as it really is a great looking and playing game.

#310 3 years ago

Maybe a TILT makes you lose the game, instead of the ball. Very old games used to end the game with a TILT.
Can you start a new game if you have credits on it, or does it erase credits too? Now that would be a bug!

I keep checking the PBR merch page hoping they will have Black Friday or pre-Christmas 20% or more discount code that works for all their merch (including pinball)... no doubt they would try to get out of that, but the website does say "all sales are final."

It does show a small discount, to $6399, not sure if that's recent or not.

That's not recent.

I've really enjoyed playing this game lately and like the overall PBR art scheme better than Whoa Nellie too. So much so that I've actually been contemplating getting one. Then the logic of what I could buy alternatively for the same amount of $ brings me back down to earth.

Still ...

#316 3 years ago

I'm not usually one to complain about pinball pricing (I just bought a NIB for $10k) but $6399 seems insane for a game that amounts to 5 pop bumpers and a kickout hole. The art style is really cool though.

Actually - only 4 pop bumpers (the 5th one is "dead") - but WHAT pop bumpers they are!

The game is definitely comparatively simple, but like many EMs (on which it's based), it's damn challenging, a lot of fun, and has a certain allure that keeps you coming back for more. At Shorty's in Seattle, it's set for 3 balls for a quarter and they go fast.

I'm right there with you, Tim. I really want one of these, but it's a lot of money. If it was $1,500 less, I'd be all over it.

Me too. And I think a lot of others would be in, at a 4500-5000 price point.

Which, let's face it, they could easily hit if they wanted to.

Stay home. Drink #Pabst. Shop online at store.pabstblueribbon.com and use code "PABSTFRIDAY" at checkout for 25% off all orders today!

Bastards took the "can-crusher" off the store today! So much for my brilliant plan

Thanks for posting this. Been dying to get a feel for it, and to top it off it's a relatively short drive away

#328 3 years ago

Does anyone have the game code for PBR? I'm wondering if you can run it in WNBJM similar to what FGY/Shrek owners can do.

Thanks for the code. Yeah - I had high hopes that Pabst might be discounting it too as part of their Black Friday sale. No such luck as discovered earlier this week.

As far as I know, the only place you can buy one is the PBR web store, but they temporarily removed it from the site. The price is $6,300:

Yeah - Pabst temporarily removed it again this past week to fix their checkout process which was incorrectly charging a shipping fee for the game.

Actual price (sadly) = $6,399 + applicable state sales tax. Shipping included in price.

Even Pinsiders with business connections through Pabst have apparently not been able to get much of a discount so far.

I was told they are offering all sorts of kickbacks to bring the cost under 5k if you have it in a bar serving pbr

I'd be willing to serve that swill in my basement if they would let me buy one for $5k ...

#337 3 years ago

- FLASH -

It's my understanding that Stern has now released Pabst Can Crusher games in very limited numbers to their top distributors due to demand. The cost is still comparatively expensive, but less than the Pabst store price. If you're seriously considering buying this game, I'd recommend you call around.

#338 3 years ago
Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Thanks for the heads up! When you say "comparatively expensive", do you mean compared to WNBJM?

#339 3 years ago

Yes - price is higher than WNBJM's understood $5,300 +/- street price which I know many in the hobby consider to already be way too high.

I supposedly got the last of 3 PCCs allotted to my distributor at nearly $1,100 less than what I would have had to pay through Pabst (including WA state sales tax). I didn't shop around though so prices may vary somewhat.

I've really been enjoying my Pabst Can Crusher game - very fun!

Here's a pic and a few videos for those interested in seeing (and hearing) one in a home environment. The first video is a short one just showing the game and the last two are of a couple of games I played on it recently. I have mine set for 5 balls and outlane posts at max gap.

Nice work Dude, totally addictive game. I have WNBJM and love it. Would love to throw the PCC code in her one day for a change.

#342 3 years ago

Looks pretty cool, don't really car for the theme.

Could this be a great candidate for a custom re-theme assuming one didn't mind spending the money and if callouts and music could be altered with the pinball browser?

Quoted from oldskool1969:

+1 to this.

Can the code be backed up from PCC?

PBR just tweeted a tax weekend sale of 25% in their store! I tried applying the code PBRTAXDAY to my cart with the Can Crusher in it, and it reduced the price to $4,799.25.
