Cho Chabudai Gaeshi is an arcade game by Taito, equipped with a small plastic tea table that the player must pound on and then flip over. The goal is to propel characters through walls and into objects, causing as much destruction as possible. The game's name roughly translates to "Upending Tea Tables."
The game is based on a well-known theme and trend in Japanese pop culture, the upending or flipping of tea tables. The action is seen throughout Japanese television, manga, and films. The term chabudai gaeshi is also used as an expression to describe a quick reversal of a situation, much like the English expression "to turn the tables".
