Product Description

Product Description

Play-ball! Now your whole family can experience Americas greatest pastime with Old Century Baseball. A tribute to the grand old ballparks of yesteryear, this exquisitely detailed pinball style coffee table game provides fun on a grand scale. Forget the batteries and gather round. Players young and old launch the pinball and swing the bat to hit singles, doubles, triples and homeruns. Record each batters performance on actual scorecards, while turning movable scoreboard knobs to keep track of the game. This collector-quality game is sure to take the edge off the 21st century.24-1/2H x 24-1/2W x 15D "

Amazon.com

Players of this old-fashioned tabletop game find that, instead of playing pinball, they're interfacing with America's favorite pastime. Manually played, Old Century Baseball has no electronic features--just sanded, stained, and nostalgically painted wood. Players pull back the hammer to pitch the steel pinball (there are two included) into the colorful field. A single wooden flipper--shaped like a bat--hits it. Instead of yesteryear's Red Sox or Black Crackers running bases, there are pinball holes or ramps to signify singles, doubles, triples, outs, or grand slams. Players use detailed score cards to keep track of Road and Home positions and points.

The 27- by 27- by 8-inch game requires some assembly. To that end, wood glue is included to attach the backboard, pennant flags, and field walls. Screws mount the exterior ball-return slot and support legs. No batteries required. --Diane Beall

I recommend this one over the smaller model made by the same company. This one is much more playable.

Who'd thought that pinball mixed with basball could equal this? This is an antique "Piseball" game where players take turns batting, the object is like baseball! GET THE MOST RUNS! Teams can be 1-9 players long and should prove to be a grand-slam game for any audience! The Japanese have a game on the Super Nintendo that's based off of this exact game! This is a great game for all ages.

This game was purchased as a gift for my grandsons' 9th birthday. His uncle and his Dad seemed to have a great time playing the game.
They finally relented and let him (grandson) have a go at it. It appears to be very well made and looks to be authentic in detail. What a handsome and fun game that can be enjoyed by more than one player at a time and by players of different age groups. Great family activity- sports fan or not.

I have been looking at this item for several years in catalogues and always felt the $100.00 price tag was too much. Happily we found it on Amazon for a lot less money and free shipping. Our whole family has been having a lot of fun with it. It's not hard to assemble, however once you have it together it does not fold up for storage, so make sure you have somewhere to leave it out all the time.

It would be easier to keep score on a book that is not glossy or bound; ink smears, pencil does not show up, and writing in the crease is difficult. They should include a score book similar to the typical baseball scoring books; spiral bound, paper. Other than that, the product is exactly what we were looking for.

I bought this game as a gift for my 8 year old son. The "old-fashioned" concept seemed like a great idea. Within 1 day he was disappointed and crying. Among a variety of minor problems, the largest problem was the poor quality of the plunger and especially the bat mechanism. Trust me, it doesn't hold up. The batting mechanism is held together by cheap wood that isn't sturdy and the few metal parts are thin and also cheap. The tiny screw holding the bat firm constantly comes loose and then it strips after 1 or 2 tightenings. Most of the items are glued, making it nearly impossible to even access most of the items. I suggest staying away.

The overall quality of this game is excellent. It is constructed of real wood and composites. The game play is fantastic. My only complaint with the one I received was that one of my glued ramps and a couple of my glued bumper blocks were not glued in the exact position they were meant to be. You can tell this because it appears the base board (playing surface) is stamped with the location and shape that indicated exactly where the glued piece should be, and if it slides off that position during production, you can tell by seeing the stamp exposed. This doesn't effect game play, but I am a profectionist, and I always take pride in anything I make, and those "little detail" go a long way! I could return it and hope the next one is flawless, but it's not worth it. The ramp that goes to the grandslam and homerun was my biggest concern, but I have been able to hit both. It is not easy, but a grandslam and homerun in my book should be very challenging to achieve.
