Hoping this is /cgl/ related because it's a Japanese crane game app where you can get anime & game merch, plushies, and Japanese household items.

Any other players or former Toreba addicts?

After that I just stuck to the little things in the plastic boxes you could just knock off the bars.

So far I've spent over $100 and only got seven prizes for it. I put in a shipping order when I realized I'd dropped $45 in three days (got four prizes though) and I'm just going to cancel my account when they arrive.

Ugh why did you show this to me. It is so difficult.

>> No.9582887

If anyone is new to Toreba, DON'T PLAY IT YET! You get 5 free tries and it's best to look at some guides first.

The Crane Couple made some and I watched their Toreba videos for a few hours until I got the good pointers down. Also helps if you wait until the prizes are close. If there's a popular machine (queue goes up to 5 people) hop in the queue and usually you can win because someone gives up.

Sorry, I think my post made more sense in my head. It's just not nearly as fun as playing a crane game in real life. You don't get the immediate satisfaction of getting your prize once you win a game. There's no one cheering you. It's just an app. To each their own, but it's a meh concept to me.

Didn't get anything with the first 5 tries but got something with the free 5000 TP when you hook up your CC. Now to wait the seven days for the free shipping, hah!

>> No.9583596

Shipping is free every 7 days and prizes stay in your cart for 14.

For those of us that don't have arcades or even pop-up crane games (like in malls/shops) it's the best we can get. And there are people cheering you on because when you play it shows how many viewers worldwide are watching you. A lot of people compete to get into the 5 person queue on popular machines just to get the views because some machines can have nearly 100 people watching.

i've never found myself wasting money on an app so quick but i don't feel too bad since you actually get a tangible prize shipped for free. $5 isn't a big deal but it can lead to a lot more very easily so i think i'll budget myself to $5 max every paycheck just to give myself some discipline. $30 over the span of three months is fine but $30 in one night will drive me into a pit of self loathing.

The games are "rigged" in the sense that they are all winnable, but you can't expect to do anything in one try. This is Japanese crane game 101. Westerners can buthurt that the weak ass claw can't pick stuff up when what you're supposed to do is use it to push and pull the prize to the drop. Always expect at least 3-5 tries even if you're good. Still cheaper than retail usually.

You can dispute it in your play history if it doesn't show up.

>> No.9585379

I played one game for like 40 minutes straight and the claw didn't grab once. I'm almost pro at claw games IRL, and Toreba is like any other arcade- some machines are rigged WAY harder than others. The claws are usually set to only actually grasp every X number of plays, so you have to be on a grasping play, as well as be lined up properly. Different machines have different numbers of plays between grasps, and some machines are just 100% weak ass claw, so its next to impossible to pick anything up. Its fine if its a through-the-bars type machine because you can still place the claw to push the items when it drops, but if its one where you have to actually pick the item up and drop it in the chute, your best bet is to watch for a little first to see how the claw is reacting. If you see 7 or 8 tries and it still hasn't actually grabbed, either step in and try 3 or 4 plays, or just give up.

Seriously. The worst is when you spend all your TP and run out, but you can see that you're really close to getting the prize. I spent way more money than intended on the pompompurin plush just because I could see that I was manipulating the machine correctly and I actually had a very fairy shot of winning, and I could see players lining up in the queue to try and take advantage of the moves I had made. I didn't want the money I spent to go to waste so I...spent more money, of course!

I spent way too much on the Munchkin pouch but I timed out and almost had it before some jerkwad next in queue tossed it back against the display zone. I was raging too hard to care how many pts I was burning through by then.

Tip from me though, definitely browse every single machine if you're not picky on prizes. A lot of machines will get 'abandoned' in favor of the new ones so you can get some really good items. That's how I got the Daramofu-san. Someone left it halfway off the platform so I just scooped it up.

Also queue hop! If there's a machine you like just hop in the queue and wait. If it's your turn and it's not looking good just hop out of queue and then get back in.

Third tip, go for the prizes in the clear boxes! Those are hard to pick up but they're super easy to push along the bars so if you angle to the right of the box you can usually hook it with the left claw and send it skidding either sideways to drop through the bar gap or send it right off the bars.

If you want to win something specific and don't know how, go through the prize history. You can see the winning replays of every item won.

This time around I was really deadset on trying to get the pompompurin prizes but next time I'll def try that - I did browse and pass over some prizes I wasn't interested in but could see there were some prizes left in good positions. The only thing that sucks is when a person comes by and knocks it out of place lol. It's also really sad watching the people who don't understand how the game works and they waste a good turn on trying to go after the display prizes.

Also wow thanks for that replay link! I didn't realize you could view other people's replays. I was watching some tutorials on youtube earlier and those helped me figure out how some of the machines worked, like the ones with bars - that's how I was able to win the pompompurin pouch and also helped me realize just how much you need to use the machine to just knock items around into place/use specific areas of the machine to do so. This game is actually quite fun once you realize how much strategizing there is to be done.

Yeah that's a good bonus of Toreba. If you see a prize you want you didn't know about you can check and see if any Japanese anons already got it from their local machines and put it up for auction.

Thanks for your concern, though hanging out in the itabag thread has taught me how to get good deals. I found it for cheap on Surugaya too, so I can add it to my next haul, get free domestic shipping and only pay 300 yen + international shipping. Or, since my brother is going to Japan very soon, I can ask him to keep an eye open in case he finds it.

I also have terrible, terrible luck with this kind of games so I know I'd most likely spend ludicrous amounts trying to get it. I'll check on the feed regularly though, if I see it in a good position I might try my luck with my free plays !


Damn, how cheap are we talking ? I'm not interested in getting it but I've been looking at the stream and some players seem to be dropping sooo many tries on it.

>> No.9586717

So I was trying to get a figure and I dunno what happened, maybe I knocked it into a position that was impossible to win from, because all of a sudden while taking a moment to pause and think about how to move the crane, the game went into maintenance. Then like 1-2 minutes later the prize had been moved back starting position. It was still on my turn, I hadn't hit "start" yet and it's not like I lost my place and someone else won it. Is this a thing that happens and am I just screwed out of the TP?

Toreba has put legitimate sex toys in their machines before. (see: >>9588018) Don't be too surprised.

Your best bet is to watch for a day or so to see the strength of the cranes and which style you prefer (ping pong, ball, d-ring, etc). They're all different and have their own strategies, it's just a matter of learning them. And like another anon said above, it's gonna take more than one try about 90% of the time.

Also, cranes usually get stronger the longer its prize has been out. Staff sometimes change the style of crane after a prize has been out for a couple days.

Sorry for the walls of text; I was really excited to see a Toreba thread, since I play all the time. Here's a recent play of mine I'm really proud of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQaY-z8kXzw

There's a new Toreba game that's giving away 50 free plays. It looks a little odd but I'm going to try it.

>> No.9589750

Yeah, I posted it there! I love the community there and on their discord server, mostly because it feels like a gambling addiction anonymous group and I don't know when to quit. They're enablers, all of them.

When the big Woolys came out, I got the first two ones with $30 while a bunch of people in the Toreba reddit discord group were watching. It's so satisfying to go from intense gameplay straight to a bunch of strangers who were watching over a live camera feed cheering for you. You can get addicted to that shit so fast.

Those ball machines are all luck. I try not to play them now.

>> No.9589765

That sounds both amazing and yet so enabling. Thankfully I'm a broke college student so when I ran out of spare change I could quit playing. At least, until this Toreba 2D offered 50 free plays. So far I'm liking it because it's so cutesy looking and lag-free. That was my main issue with regular Toreba.

>> No.9589780

Okay, Toreba 2D? Sucks.

You log in and you get 5 free play tickets to use in the machine but past that you get 50 free "blue tickets" which only give you the first play free. You absolutely cannot get a prize in one play using this game.

You need to pick up a prize from the far right side and carry it across the playing field to the left. The UFO doesn't hold on and you won't make it very far. I've only used 10 tickets and I don't think I'll use the rest only because there's no point. The machines also reset every time you leave so there's no point to going back and trying to win.

The idea is cute, I love the app layout and everything but you have a better chance of getting a prize via Toreba than Toreba 2D unless you're going for one of the shitty small pts rocks.

So I won a prize last week that didn't get added to my cart. I contacted them to prove I did win it, I still haven't heard back from them.

Does it take a while for them to respond? Reading their Facebook page, seems like others have a hard time getting them to respond. The prize is now sold out and was removed. I'm worried I wasted money for a prize I won't get.

That's weird. I've had to dispute the prize twice, and they always get back to me in less than 10 minutes. I would do it again and in the notes mention that you've tried to contact them previously and had no response.

Don't fucking waste money on this retarded shit.

It's obviously stacked and you can get better prices or even half the price on the internet. The thrill of the game is what drives people to play and winning isn't even worth it. Not to mention the price per play is inflated as fuck.
