Dragon's Lair

Tagged as okay in 2015

Original, Cinematronics Dragon's Lair arcade game circuit board from 1983. This boardset is untested, the main board was tagged as "okay" in 2015, but we've had it sitting in a box since then. We just don't have the time to properly test it. We are unsure about the rom board, probably safe to assume they need to be updated to a more current version.  Please assume it may need some work, but in our experience these are fairly simple boards. 

See photos for more details, we do not have the metal mounting plate for this boardset.

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.
