Missing ICs

Original Atari Asteroids arcade game circuit board from 1980. Consider this one a fixer upper, we found it in a box with some other boards. It looks like it was repaired at some point with a number of new sockets added to the board (the work looks fairly clean and done properly).  Board is missing its roms, a number of other ICs (where new sockets were installed) as well.

Sold as-is, needing repair.

See pictures for more details on its exact condition.

Quick Game Facts

Game play is straightforward and very fast paced after the first couple of stages. You control your space ship with one mission; survive by avoiding and destroying asteroids that fly throughout the screen and the occasional UFO that is always out to get you. In addition to your ship's blaster your ship is aided with hyperspace, which instantly transports you somewhere else on the screen.

Coin-Op Overview

Easily one of the top five most successful arcade games released and arguably Atari's most successful game. Asteroids was known to devour quarters when released. Some arcade operators we've spoken to said that they had cut a hole in the quarter box and put trash cans in the game to hold all of the money the game made when it was released.
