Went to Target in Elmhurst, Queens, NY today (8/10/20) and looked for the game so I could take a picture of the actual product for this thread.  And here it is...

Picked mine up at Target last week. My store in Augusta, GA also put Plinko next to Skee-Ball. I thought the same thing, Steve- great minds think alike!

I love the Plinko board! I have to tilt it back a bit to keep the chips from flying off the board. I love the lights and sound effects. They did well!

My roommate, a mutual friend and I played it last night and we were underwhelmed. The chips became projectiles more often than not. However, this might be a worthy do-it-yourself project for the motivated and talented.

Anyone else on here from New Jersey see the game on the shelf at their local Target? I didn't see it at my local store in Hackensack yesterday.

For something that costs $40, it really shouldn't come with any major defect.

I'm more forgiving towards it since it comes off as a realistic scaled down version of the board which is pretty cool in itself, outside of its functionality. It seems as though a neat fix for the flying chips is to do what the show had to do and make your own shield for the board using rubber bands. I haven't had too many flying chips as a problem with my own board, but I think it's something that's a problem with probably a vast majority of copies even if slightly.

The quality control on these boards is TERRIBLE. Had to buy 4... yes FOUR before finally getting one that was passable. Many either came scratched, or the laminate was coming off, or the two halves of the board wouldn't match up properly. The QA is really bad on this.

Just a heads up this just went on sale on Target.com for $31.99, 20% off. If you already got it just start a chat with them or call the 800 number to get your $8 plus tax back  xlx

EDIT: For some reason the chat agent said they only owed be $6 back, I told her it should be $8 and she changed it to $8 back, so be careful of the amount when talking to them
