This game is just the best. My whole family loves it. Wizard mode is attainable by mere mortals but still challenging. Awesome music, humor, great flow, and just plain fun. There’s a reason it’s a classic!

This game was fun. I only played 5 games on it, but it was very cool. I enjoy the Dracula and Frankenstein's monster toys that you hit. I would say this is probably my 6th favorite pinball that I've played. It's hard to decide because there's so many good tables coming out these days. But this is solid game.

It's weird....let me explain, it's a little on the easy side and there's one shot that annoys me because I can't hit but I thoroughly enjoy it, my kids enjoy it too. The lighting is great, the theme is timeless, the colors pop and its funny. The topper on this LE is perfect and the lighting on the topper really complements the game.

Super fun game. Love the colors animations and sound. It’s one of those games where newbies can get into it and seasoned players keep coming back. Some of the best bash toys in my opinion.

This game is a good game an deserves to be in the top 50 games, but no way it is a top ten game. The game gets boring so quickly.

What can I say about Monster Bash that has not already been said? MB is a great fun game with simple (easy to follow) rules that everyone can enjoy. The rules are not very deep which is kinda why the game is so much fun. This pin is the type that always wants you to play one more game... L.E. version is near perfect, great game to play beautiful to look at and the sound quality is also great. Not the best game if you only plan to own one pin, rules may not be deep enough...

What a great game - had no idea what I was missing until I played this! I plan to purchase one in the near future.

Awesome game - the LE has it all - turning an old game into a fresh experience is what Chicago Gaming has done - hit it out of the park with the lighting, toys, and general feel of the game. Not a big fan of just two flipper 'fan' styled shots but this game gets it right for me; rewarding as and you feel like a rock god when you get MOR mode running - but damn that bride microphone is hard to get!!

One of the best pins for people getting into pinball - pure fun, amazing callouts that will make you laugh, great shots and something to achieve for anyone. The Limited Edition from CGC is also as beautiful as it gets, specifically the blue trim is amazing.

What an outstanding version of an outstanding game. Great play-ability, rules and flow. The theme is perfect from my perspective as is the music. Toys are abundant, but sooo perfect for the game.

Monster Bash Remake LE is hands down one of the most beautiful machines I’ve ever played and I have the privilege of owning. Classic fan layout with one of the best themes in pinball. Perfect flow, great animations and funny callouts make this game a keeper. Especialy awesome because anybody can walk up to it and enjoy it thoroughly because of its straight forward rule set. And that topper!! Wow!! Absolutely gorgeous!! One gripe I have is that I just wish the code was a bit deeper. That said, it’s still one of the most fun games around!!

A beautiful machine that deserved a refresh, Color display looks beautiful and the figurines really pop. The sound and animations have only gotten better. Overall Chicago pinball has done an excellent job bringing back old machines. Sadly if you owned the original this refresh should not scare you, they are works of art like all pinballs, not pieces to be sold and bought for profit.

I have added this game recently to our home collection and I can just say WOOOW. First of all big big compliments to CGC for the upgrade of this classic and the build quality...SUPER! This top game is now just that bit more fun and stunning. Light, sound, display, topper, vibrant is all there. Me and the family just cannot stop playing it as the gameplay and theme have it all. I never dreamed I would unbox a new and upgraded Monster Bash in my life so it was a big moment. It is a lot of money but it is a fully interactive artwork that you can play with and have fun with for many year to come....unique.
It is not as challenging/frustrating as AFM can be but the overal package is so great that competitive gameplay is always there. Like AFM this will never leave the collection.

Cool game with a lot to shoot for. Artwork is amazing and callouts are awesome. Multiball is fun and to score jackpots in because of the callouts in my opinion.

This is easily the best version of this game. Too shallow to be a keeper even in a large collection, in my opinion, but the light show is superb...behind only WOZ, TNA, and ST in my book.

Newest game in my basement, likely to never leave!

one of the few games I consider close to perfect.. collecting the monsters and watching them jam out never gets old. absolutely timeless machine.

the bride wireform shots are satisfying to hit over and over

Dracula coming out of his coffin and being campy is perfection

Frankie multiball is one of the most memorable things to do in the entire game of pinball imo. watching him being brought to life and then bashing him is unbeatable.

the creature under the playfield looks great and it feels good shooting over there into the lagoon.

not a huge fan of the cabinet art, but the rest of the experience is top notch. def in my top 5 favs.

This is the best machine i have played. Either the Frankenstein toy stacking modes with the multi-balls this machine was executed perfectly so in conclusion if not the best i do think that some characters like wolf man deserve toys but other than that the best machine i have played.

The good: Fun. Easy multiball which makes it pretty approachable. You can clearly see why it's one of the classics. Shots flow well and there's a variety of them. All seems accessible from ball 1 which is nice for a party-style game. Pop out dracula is fun. Artwork on LE is top notch and really draws you in.

The bad: I've heard it can get repetitive, which I can see. Shots seem kinda vanilla occasionally.

The overall: Lots of fun. Great party game with it being pretty accessible. The LE is just plain gorgeous as well. I would own one in a smaller collection if given the opportunity at a reasonable price.

CGC has really taken the original pin and elevated the LE version into the 21st century. The fun factor of this pin is great. Whenever guests ask to play pinball the first on they run to is MB. The call outs, graphics and game play are well coordinated and add to the experience making it very immersive.

CGC MB LE is a "home run". Professionally done and very well built. Non-stop fun, a keeper.
