Dragon's Lair

Tested and working boardset

Original, Cinematronics Dragon's Lair arcade game circuit board from 1983 in working condition. Boardset was recently tested with an original Dragon's Lair test rig using a Hi-Tech mechanical conversion card and Sony LDP-1550 laser disc player.  Board is fairly clean and has the Dragon's Lair Enchanced version 2.1 rom set installed.  This is an earlier revision main board ("Early Version 1", we believe) with the 68705 IC installed at U7. 

See photos for more details, board is mounted on its original metal plate.

Quick Game Facts
Dragon's Lair

You play Dirk the Daring, an adventurous knight who must save Daphne from the clutches of Singe, the Evil Dragon. A Laser Disc game from Rick Dyer and Don Bluth, Dragon's Lair required the player to direct Dirk through various obstacles of the Singe's castle.

Coin-Op Overview

Dragon's Lair was the most successful Laser Disc game, and one of the most collectible games today. During its initial release, it attracted so much attention that many arcades installed a T.V. on top of the game so that on-lookers could see Dirk in action. And although you were given 5 lives for 50 cents, most new plays would finish their game very quickly.

You control Dirk with a 4-way joystick and a sword button.
