  • Stress, anger, frustration

  • Most of us experience it and we all deal with it in our own special way

  • For example, in Britain everyone knows the best way to deal with stress is to make hand puppets and listen to Shout! by Tears for Fears

  • I should probably get out more

  • It turns out that in Japan there's a well known way of expressing your anger or stress

  • and there's even a really cool arcade game that deals with it as well

  • Chabudai Gaeshi is a phrase that literally means "to flip one's table"

  • Chabudai is not too dissimilar from this table, a short four-legged table

  • Japanese families sit around and eat dinner on it or put leaflets on it like I do

  • Typically it's seen as an act done by the father of the household

  • when he comes home from work, feeling a bit stressed

  • The kids are being loud and annoying, the wife is going blablabla

  • And so he has a bit of a violent outburst

  • and just flips the table

  • But fortunately this concept has been made into an exciting game!

  • Hope they've got insurance!

  • Chou Chabudai Gaeshi, which literally translates to

  • Ultra Table Flipping Game

  • So the game starts out with you sitting at the dinner table

  • The wife's preparing dinner, and the kids are being quite annoying, on their phones, making noises

  • And so you start banging the table

  • each time they do something annoying

  • I didn't understand this at first I thought you were supposed to keep banging the table continuously

  • Which is wrong don't do that

  • And then at the last 10 seconds

  • It's about a minute long

  • You flip the table as hard as you can

  • The wife gets the brunt of it

  • coz she's making her way to the table when the husband/father flips it

  • and you get to see the table make its way through your wife's face

  • in slow motion, again and again

  • The kids don't know what's going on

  • The crockery, ruined

  • Dinner, uh, forget about dinner

  • And what better way to get rid of your stress

  • ...and your family?

  • I have to say its a lot of fun, I don't have a wife and kids but if I did

  • I can't imagine a better way to relieve my stress by flipping a table through them

  • But the table flipping fun doesn't stop there coz there are other scenarios as well

  • Such as: an angry teacher flipping his desk

  • a woman working at a burger restaurant

  • and even a funeral where you flip the corpse over across all the guests at the funeral

  • Probably the most disturbing one of the lot

  • You can even play against other people in a stadium style flipping table competition

  • and the points you get are depending on

  • how far you flip the table and how much damage you cause

  • I have to say I haven't seen an angry Japanese person in the last 6 months I have been here

  • so I find the concept of someone flipping a table in anger very hard to believe

  • So the reason I love this game so much

  • is it does relieve stress, it's quite fun flipping that table

  • Especially when you see the slow motion replay

  • Let's face it, whilst some people might say "Oh gosh, how violent and barbaric"

  • Compared to, say "shooting up a Russian airport" in Call of Duty

  • or running over a whole city, in Grand Theft Auto

  • I don't think this is that bad at all really

  • So yeah it's a fun game

  • a practical way of relieving stress

  • Probably something I can't imagine seeing in real life

  • Particularly when...

  • I think I just broke my table

  • Oh my god

Stress, anger, frustration
