Link, please?

I checked the Target website and nothing came up under a search for "Plinko."  The closest they had was "Plink Garbage Disposal Freshener and Cleaner," not exactly the same thing.

Per the manufacturer, it’s “coming soon.”

Finally tracked down where I first found it.  Wink Martindale posted about it on Facebook a few days ago.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

That's because it's not "officially" out. Most Targets have told folks to check back Sunday (when they'd start a new floor set) for the game. So, it doesn't show up online or on their in-store kiosks (when searching for it by name), though it is in their system should you find it and purchase it as it's been put out early by some Targets.

I found it at my Target! It was hidden behind two bigger games on clearance. It's awesome!  :-D

Thanks for posting that video. I thought about going over to my local Target to pick it up today, but... yikes!

Eh, to each their own. If the Plinko board is that bad, I'm more inclined to buy it  :-)

It looks like the pucks falling out can be remedied by decreasing the angle of the board and the table, which might require a bit of cutting into the plywood holders, but shouldn't be that hard of a fix. The fact that it costs 40 bucks in that condition is still pretty bad.

You can put rubber bands around the pegs like the grid they use on the show. You can't do anything about the gaps by the yellow borders, though. But they definitely reduce the amount of times the chips bounce off the board. Now they only bounce out sometimes if they reach the far left or right.

The poster of that video also edited their post to say a friend has the game and it works perfectly for that person.

Picked up the game this afternoon. Holy cow! This is great! Does a chip fly off the board every now and then? Yeah. But compared to the successful drops, it’s not often. This was a great buy!
