Don't like the new Plinko set in Vietnam now.

Needs some more color, I think.
The price will always be right.

IMO it's not terrible, just could use some brightening up and the game name is too small on the board.

I think I actually admire this set over the current US Plinko set.  Well, just the color scheme; definitely not the structure.  Though the structure isn't awful.  A touch up would be favorable.  Maybe add some violet to the board, I don't know.  Otherwise Vietnam Plinko is okay

I just realized this thread hasn't been stickied.  I'd better do something about that.

Just came across the Indonesian version's YouTube channel, and it seems that they have revived the series amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, with contestants observing physical distancing (they've removed the audience seats). A new host, announcer, opening theme, along with some cosmetic changes. They got rid of the US-style titles and replaced it with a similar 3-D logo. Here's a pic of a refurbished Punchboard and their Big Wheel.





The golden door frames were really neat, along with the shades of colors of the big doors. Also, there was another video of a "giveaway" portion somehow made as a pricing game with two contestants. Not pretty sure how it worked, but here's the clip:

Portugal refurbished a number of games last year.  They've continued filming new episodes with audiences during COVID-19.

Is it just me or do the locks on Portugal's Master Key look like Mickey Mouse?

Definitely agree Plinkoman. They also look more like parking meters than locks to me.

The Portugal set is very...blue.

To me, those locks look more like a person wearing headphones jamming to music. So the goal is to find the *key* to their heart. 8-)
