Hi, I'm trying to find out what this game is called. Its where you put in a coin and you try to get it in a good location to push a ton of other coins off the edge. Its a great game to lose money on ;). Anybody know what im talking about?.

Thanks

What you described is called a coin pusher game (sometimes called a ledge game due to the moving ledge in most of them). The setup of these varies greatly based on state law and operator preference, but generally the higher the angle on the front edge of the playfield (lip), the harder it is to win. Small playfield dividers make it easier to win and are required in some states; California and Ohio for example, are very strict on these, especially in liquor-selling establishments.

If you need any more info, just email me. (I'll be out of town for a week though, but I'll reply as soon as I get back.)

It goes by different names, the most common I've seen is SplashDown...a distorted pic from the craft of "I Dream of Jeannie" adorns the machines.....

You can find these machines at amusement parks. Remember that Coasterbuzz is about the entire industry not just the coasters...

I love the games, I don't know the exact name but several times when you put the coin down and the thing pushes forward the coins drop off the sides to the park and not to you making it very difficult sometimes.
