Dave & Buster’s Orders Fishbowl Frenzy from Team Play for All Locations

Elk Grove Village, IL, (January 27, 2015) – Team Play has completed shipping its new Fishbowl Frenzy videmption game to every Dave and Buster’s, the first chain of entertainment destinations to receive the new augmented reality, videmption game.

It is now public knowledge that Fishbowl Frenzy has landed at Dave & Buster’s, and positive reviews have been popping up around the internet.  “We enjoy the online reviews,” commented Team Play principal and CMO, Frank Pellegrini.  “We love reading that the guests at Dave & Buster’s ‘couldn’t get enough of Fishbowl Frenzy’ and that the reviewer could hardly get a chance to play because of the ‘horde’ of guests ‘crowded’ around Fishbowl Frenzy.  Three years and a lot of work went into developing Fishbowl Frenzy, so it’s very rewarding to hear that Dave & Buster’s guests are enjoying the game.”

Team Play reports enormous U.S and international demand for Fishbowl Frenzy, production of which only recently started.  Pellegrini explained, “Dave & Buster’s offers an exciting entertainment destination which attracts guests of all ages.  They were kind enough to quietly test Fishbowl Frenzy prototypes at two of their Dave & Buster’s locations, long before we publicly released the game.  They were so happy with the test results that they ordered units for all of their stores before the game was even in production!”

Winning the confidence of Dave & Buster’s was a big score for Team Play’s Fishbowl Frenzy and comes on the heels of another big score:  Winning the 2014 IAAPA Brass Ring Award for Best New Coin-Op Product.

“We were thrilled that IAAPA recognized Fishbowl Frenzy with the Brass Ring Award,” said Pellegrini.  “And, we are honored that our customers believe in the product.  It is such a unique and entertaining video redemption game that it appeals to everyone.  We expected small children to like it, but we discovered that guests of all ages like to play Fishbowl Frenzy as much as the kids!”

Strictly a game of skill, Fishbowl Frenzy is visually appealing with its huge, 65” translucent LCD monitor and delightful 3D fish characters.  The game employs a unique combination of computer-generated graphics and mechanical play, unlike anything seen before in the coin‑op industry.  In developing the new augmented reality, video redemption game, Team Play combined advanced technology and adorable graphics with a carnival theme, to create a terrifically entertaining game which is easy to learn, fun to play, and appealing to everyone.

Fishbowl Frenzy challenges players to time the mechanical release of an actual ball which bounces through a field of pins into one of the fishbowls attached to the game’s 65‑inch monitor.  Where the ball splashes determines how many tickets the player wins.  The translucent screen allows players to see through the LCD screen to watch the ball drop, while charming, computer-generated 3D fish celebrate each win, excitedly spinning and jumping.

Test earnings of the prototype solidly proved Fishbowl Frenzy™ to be a top earner.  And, the consensus among everyone who has seen Fishbowl Frenzy is that the new videmption game is exceptional – quite possibly the best redemption game ever created.  “We especially enjoy hearing guests say that Fishbowl Frenzy is the best redemption game they’ve ever seen,” Pellegrini said.  “It’s impossible for photos and videos to convey how really cool this technology is, so people are really impressed when they see it in person.”

If you didn’t see Fishbowl Frenzy at IAAPA, just visit your nearest Dave & Buster’s for a chef‑crafted meal, innovative drink, and exciting Fishbowl Frenzy game play.  And, if you haven’t ordered your Fishbowl Frenzy yet, go to to find a Team Play distributor near you.
