Knock down 4 drop targets to get double or triple bonus, some rollover switches raise them during game play to add to the challenge. Fun game can be a little "floaty" and slow for some. Chimes sound great and the build is solid overall. The main draw is this game doubles as a table. These are hard to find but for the price they are a cool addition to any collection.

Take Five is an Allied Leisure Cocktail table that could have been better than most cocktails.

The Pros:
An interesting a-b-c-d drop target raise and collect ruleset that could use a better layout. Grandma's bloomers are always a pleasant sight to behold. The drops can only be raised by hitting certain lanes.

The Cons:
This game needs a way for the ball to get back to the top of the PF/ shooter lane. The only way to get the B-D and extra ball is from above or with a LOT of luck. That pop bumper garden is incredibly tight.

The Takeaway:
A lackluster PF design means that this game could have been better with the rules it implemented. But as it stands, this table is just another cocktail pin that says: "meh".

A decent table cocktail game. The left bank of drop targets + standup targets is the most interesting area, but can only be reached with the right flipper (at least on the game I tried). Nothing really exciting to shoot from the left and it is very hard to reach the upper lanes. Plays slow.

Despite these shortcomings, the game is surprisingly OK. I enjoyed its layout with the slingshots propelling the balls to the upper part of the PF. Outlanes are not greedy. Building bonus is the key. I would not mind owning one...

PS: you need to give a ranking to the game backglass... interesting concept for cocktail table ;-)
