Pissed Off Tea Table Flipping, The Arcade Game

In Japanese, people often talk about flipping over a table in anger—"chabudai gaeshi" or "upending the tea table". The action is seen throughout popular culture in Japan.

Of course, when some people in Japan get totally pissed off, they might flip over the tea table, too.

At Nintendo, the term is figuratively used to describe how Shigeru Miyamoto works. Around the office, he doesn't flip over tea tables per se, but he is known to scrap or ditch projects that aren't up to his own high standards. In a sense, he upends the tea table.

Japanese arcade game Cho Chabudai Gaeshi is a score attack game that lets players pound a soft table for combos and then upend it for the finishing move. Settings include a host club, a wedding party, an office and a Japanese style living room. So for example, in the living room stage, players bang on the table as their family complains more and more and finally flips over the table.


    LOL my back is gonna hurt if I play this

    Another fantastic game that I'll never play...guess I can't really hope for a console port =S

    Cant wait for the sequel "Slam the door in anger" ... a big door with a screen behind it with a nagging wife that you slam in her face hehe!

    For some reason.... i don't see this game been released outside of Japan.... just a guess...

    I would totally put money in that machine.

    This game really suits me very well!
