Product Description

Commercial Grade – Coin Operated – Amusement Machine – Remade and Assembled in the USA

Ice Cold Beer was originally a mechanical game released by Japanese arcade developer Taito in 1983. Collectors highly seek after the game for its classic fun and 80’s nostalgia.

Ice Cold Beer uses two joysticks to control a horizontal bar that balances a metal ball. The objective is to maneuver the ball carefully up a playfield full of holes to deposit the ball into the lit hole. If the player is successful, the bar returns to the bottom to reset. Each round, the game gets increasingly difficult as the lit spot gets higher and higher up the playfield. If the ball deposits into an unlit hole, the game is over.
