Before you assemble or move your Skee-Ball® Deluxe, find a friend. The sections should be lifted by two people. Plus, life is more fulfilling with a friend.
How big are the boxes my Skee-Ball® will arrive in? How big is each piece once unboxed?

Handcrafted and Built in the USA
Made with the same quality and attention to detail as the original 1908 arcade models (built using the same process)! Manufactured in the heart of America.

Where does my Skee-Ball® Deluxe come from?
Skee-Ball® Deluxe arcade cabinets are made and shipped from good ol' Pulaski, Wisconsin (USA), just outside of Green Bay - home of the Pulaski Polka Days, Skee-Ball®, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. Your Deluxe is handmade, in house, with the same quality and attention to detail as any original Skee-Ball® alley roller you'd find in the arcade.
I love Skee-Ball® - is this the real deal?
This is it. In 1908, Joseph Fourestier Simpson of Vineland, N.J. applied for a patent around a new game idea that had a “skee-jump” mechanism on an alley to launch a ball into targets that had a built in automatic scoring mechanism - the foundation of the Skee-Ball® we have all come to know and love.
Fast forward more than a century, Skee-Ball® has become more than an icon and a brand, it's become a household name, one that sparks joy related to all the happy memories it evokes. We love what we do, and we love to play more - so if you're thinking about adding a Skee-Ball® to your home arcade, basement, man cave, rec room, or anywhere people gather together at home, consider a Skee-Ball® Deluxe, Skee-Ball® Premium, Skee-Ball® 1908, Skee- Ball® Classic, or Skee-Ball® Glow.
Anything else is just an imitation of The Original Alley!
Is there a two-player option?
Yes, there is a 2-player challenge mode! Here are the basic arcade style rules:
1. Each player rolls 9 balls up the ramp into the targets.
2. Watch the LED display to keep track of your ball count.
3. Highest score wins!
High-fives, fist bumps, and bragging rights are encouraged.
What if I live by my own rules?
Own it. We've got some alternative game options, if you want to get wild and go rogue:
1. Hundo Rally: Players aim only for "hundo" targets.
2. No Look-Skee: Players roll 9 balls blindfolded
3. Around the World: Players aim for 10 - 20 - 30 - 40 - 50 - 100 - 10 - and 20 target.
4. Black Out: Players must hit each target once.
5. Make up your own game and share it with us on the interwebs: @officialskeeball #skeeball
Talk to me about the "home friendly balls," and why are there only four?
Deluxe uses a high density rubber ball. The game play is the same, but the feel is different as it is a lighter weight ball. Or as we say a "dry wall" friendly ball!
Balls collect and auto-return in the front, rather than down the side, which means there's only room and only need for 4 - because they'll keep coming back. The digital display keeps track of ball count and score, so the game play is the same as the arcade, with more accessibility.
I want the arcade experience - the sounds, the play, everything - will this give it to me?
Yes! Save for the physical footprint, this includes the original Skee-Ball® arcade sounds, the same game play, and the same hours of fun and years of memories made.
Can I see it in action before I buy?
If you're in the neighborhood (or driving distance) from Wisconsin - come visit us! We'd love to show you around and play a friendly game of Skee-Ball® Deluxe. If not, unfortunately at this time, our Deluxe models are only sold online. Our Skee-Ball® Premium & 1908 models, should you like to see a similar game, are available through our robust dealer network, across the contiguous United States. Find a location near you in our Skee-Ball Dealer Network.
Are you ready to play?
No, that was our question to you. Are you ready to Keep the Good Times Rollin'™?
If you can afford to buy the Premium vs the Deluxe, I would highly suggest it. I couldn't. I didn't know what to expect with this machine.
First, I HATE doing any type of assembly, but with the help of a YouTube video, I assembled this unit by myself in less than 30 minutes.
Now, the review. I wished I looked at other people's reviews. I probably would not have purchased this machine, and waited to afford the Premium.
The Deluxe uses a smaller, rubbery ball that just psychologically negates the feel of a true Skee-Ball experience. As a result, the holes are a tad bit smaller. Without a shield/cage, the balls bounce back out onto the ramp about 1/3 of the rolls. In one respect, that can be a good thing, as you won't necessarily get just 10 pts - you get a chance for a better throw.
I understand why the Deluxe uses a smaller ball, because otherwise, consumers could just upgrade to the better ball and get a more true feel of the game. With the holes a bit smaller, the feeder is smaller, so larger balls can't be used, as they would get stuck. Another minor poor function is that sometimes, the ball will roll around the 10 point hole, and hit the scoring mechanism twice, so you actually will lose a throw. You can only play two people at a time, which isn't THAT big a deal.
The positives is this unit is attractive looking, and it fit my area perfectly. It does have the same Skee-Ball music. Don't misunderstand me, this still IS still fun, but I am just disappointed I didn't get the Premium. I just think that would be the better experience.
The beauty of this franchise is that this game can be played from grade-school age to great-grandparents. So, if you are going to spend $2500 or less for game room fun, you will get more out of this than an arcade game like PacMan or something.
So far everything works and the quality seems good, except for the inserted part with the ball holes in it and the balls. It's so light weight and made of plastic the balls just kinda bounce off of it. Balls are really lightweight, guess I didn't realize it wouldn't use standard balls. Extremely hard to get them in and they end up rolling back so often since it doesn't catch the ball if you miss. So that one part just kind of ruins it. You get 8 rolls but by the time your done you've rolled about 16 times.
This is definitely made on the cheaper end. Balls bounce out and they are made of a rubber material and just don’t have the weight to make it into the hole most of the time. It’s fun, but frustrating when you can’t get half of them to even score. Probably would not buy again. Save your money.
I love everything about this machine. When I ordered it the customer service was amazing. It is well worth the money and looks awesome in our rec room. This is a trustworthy company and I would highly recommend to everyone. It was put together in about 20 minutes!!!! It came on a very well made pallet and was boxed perfectly. I scoured the internet and found skee ball machines from under $200 to $7000.00. I am so happy I found this company! The machine is PERFECT! The Skee Ball name is well lived up to. Thanks again - I would buy from you again and am already recommending it to my children and friends.
