This review is from: Arcade Style Cabinet with Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Game (Sports) This is a nice cabinet even though it is a little flimsy. When putting it together, I also glued it using wood glue which made it a bit more solid but it is still made of cheap materials. I would have gladly spend a few more dollars for a wood cabinet but it was not available. The Cricket Pro 800 dart board is the best so I have no complaints with it (great to play cricket whether against others or the computer). You MUST have the cabinet anchored to the wall for support or else it will fall over like a stack of dominoes. I do not believe that this cabinet will be able to withstand a move to another residence without something breaking on it. For now, however, it works just fine. I guess for the cost which includes the dart board, it wasn’t a bad deal. Please see the pictures for suggested modifications. 1) I installed some color-changing LED lights (Amazon item: 4 Disc – Puck Multicolored LED Lighting Kit with Color Changing Dimmable Remote). These make it great for low light play or just increasing the difficulty by strobing/fading lights in a variety of colors. Also, I attached a laser dart throw line (Amazon item: Viper Dart Laser Throw Line) for additional convenience. With these low cost modifications, I really love this dart board and cabinet. It still gets 4 stars since it is a little flimsy… Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 6 of 6 people found the following review helpful Sweet Value and Fun Times, April 7, 2013 By hectorcubs – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Arcade Style Cabinet with Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Game (Sports) While I will say that the cabinets construction is a little flimsy (added a few support braces to clear this up), once the unit is up and secured the thing looks and plays really well. We played our 1st series of games the other night and had a blast. Contrary to the other reviews, I felt like the voice function helped to stay focused or aware, especially as drinks begin to flow throughout the nights. I would easily have paid and been happy w/ this board at twice the price, but considering the excellent price point, this thing is a steal.

(NY) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Arcade Style Cabinet with Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Game (Sports) This product is the closest one I’ve seen to a real bar type, soft tip dart board. It’s provided our family hours and hours of family fun…. So why only four stars ???? ProsGreat scoring, very accurate, very few missed darts (Darts that don’t register). Good looking, great storage compartments, decent directions for assembly and great ..Great…GREAT customer service !!!! (Easy to get a hold of and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction.) ConsYou really should have two people to assemble and set up. Set up will take a little time… 1-2 hrs.Not the sturdiest construction. It will wobble a little and needs to be secured with what ever the owner can improvise. (Wall brackets etc.) A lot of composite board, good quality but don’t get it wet.Darts that come with the game need to be upgraded Unique problemsOurs came with a defective board (Heckler feature was not working) Customer service was easy to get a hold of, left message and message was returned the following day. (Not Bad!!).. Company immediately sent a new score board and I received it in 2 or 3 days. (Great !!!)…not really… the down side is … I have to detach the game from the wall, lay it down, re fit the new scoreboard into the cabinet….another hour’s work. After all is said and done… DMI Sports (The Company that supplies the game) took good care of me. They were very helpful and got me up and running as fast as possible. No hassles, straight forward, with good old fashion customer service. Bottom line If you own a screwdriver, you can overcome the stability problems with a simple wall bracket. This is not a game that I would leave free standing in the middle of a room. It needs to be anchored.If not for the stability factor and the unfortunate scoreboard problem, this is probably a five star item.Hours of family fun !!….Thank you DMI for a pleasant experience !!!
