Played this recently at Barcadia with my daughter have to admit it is very entertaining games keeps you wanting to have another game. My daughter wants me to buy it for my collection, it’s not a bad idea …

I bought this game from the Replay FX sale. They had done one thing that I think made this game WAY better. They removed one of the captive balls so it is way harder to spam the Stewie playfield. As a result, I find it much better balanced and way more fun. In fact, I find it a lot of fun! Funny too, but I do quite enjoy the show so maybe I am just crass and juvenile!?

Very fun game and really enjoy the pinball-specific dialogue. So good to hear Norm Macdonald.

The pinball machine for people who want to play a really small, really bad pinball machine inside a pinball machine multiple times (it is nowhere as exciting as it sounds) per game, interspersed with knocking down drop targets that spell ‘FART’.

I didn’t find much else to do on this pin during my plays at The Pinball Office, and I did read the rules card.

About as enjoyable as a wet fart in a lift. Avoid…

That mini playfield is a hoot. The rules are easy to follow and straightforward to achieve aside from Lard Multiball.. so apparently random, infect the bear can as a target is a bit of a miss for me.

The best part is playing Stewie Multiball - playing both mini playfield along with multiball on the main table.

Pretty unique layout, I dare say. Pat Lawlor is no stranger to doing things differently.

Cons:
Backglass is meh

Fun pin with some quirky elements (mini pinball). My kids love the theme and I found it entertaining but wasn't really drawn back for more than a couple games. Hard to hit the scoop and the mini pinball is meh.

Not a fan of the show or the pin ...Very poor layout & Stewie pinball requires zero skill ...

A moderatly good game made better by good theming and use for voices / effects / sounds. Just more fun than Shrek despite essentially being the same game.

Approachable game and one that got me interested again in pinball- not sure I’d want to own it- found Stewie pinball can be a bit annoying after a while. Great humour with the callouts and animations are excellent as you’d expect.

Not everyone likes the theme. Fun pin to play with easy to understand rules and modes. Its one I keep going back to. STEWY pinball is great fun.

Great game. Stewie mini pinball is a great touch.
Love the humour of the show and perfectly captured in this pinball.

If you’re a fan of funny callouts, this game is tough to beat in that category - up there with (and maybe better in this respect than) Simpsons and Deadpool.

Fun to play but could get a bit repetitive in a small collection. Great however in a collection of five or more - brings variety, amusement, and the uniqueness of Stewie mini-pinball.

Scoring can be inconsistent and challenging to manage from a competitive standpoint, in terms of being able to maximize scoring in a predictable and strategic way.

Disclosure: I have owned one for around four years now.

It's a real shame the theme has to completely ruin this game. If it had ANY other theme, I'd own it for sure. Unique layout and cool mini-playfield.

The game depth is alot deeper than I originally thought. After playing it a few times I realized how much fun it is. The fart multiball, stewie pinball, toys and call outs are awesome. I was worried about the language with young kids in the house but to my surprise the game has 3 different levels adult, moderate,, and family.. This game has staying power in a home arcade.

this is one of my favorite Stern pins , so much to do & shoot for & when setup right it plays like butter , the miniature Stewie Pinball is a neat little feature , as almost everyone knows Shrek has an identical layout but not as humorous with callouts & mode wise , this game can have long ball times especially in tournaments with good players in the house

I love the upper playfield and the call-outs, but the rest of the game is pretty pedestrian.

Funniest game I have ever owned. Would have loved to see other characters from the show but what it has is great. When we have guests over most gravitate to this machine as everyone knows it. Great game!

If you like family guy, you will love it. Great theme integration. Fun callouts and music.
This game would probably not go over well if you dont like FG, or worse yet...if you don't know what FG is (or haven't seen it).

Game is a bunch of fun, and is brilliant at luring new players in. A few gripes, Stewy pinball, i love the idea of, but it doesn't do it for me, just feels odd. Playfield artwork sucks, a couple of pics in the middle and the rest is orange??!! and gameplay can be a grind. Positives, great call outs, always brings a smile. Wouldn't own, but happy to through a dollar in one.

I wasn't expecting much with this pin, I really enjoyed playing this machine, relatively easy, but a good fun factor, if it was really cheap I would possibly buy one, a game that you comeback to every so often.
