Gorf Fixer Upper Lot x 13

Lot of 13 assorted boards NONE work

Lot of 13 assorted Midway Gorf / Wizard of Wor card rack boards that do NOT work.  Doing some Spring cleaning and we have too many of these boards sitting around these days.  None of these boards work, they are missing their custom ICs and Speech chips and most rom boards are missing roms and some or all of their ram. 

There are 13 boards in total: 3 Game Boards, 3 CPU boards, 2 Pattern Boards, 2 Rom boards and 3 Ram boards.

Consider them all parts or fixer upper boards, for the most part they are in good condition, but see pictures for more details.

None of them work (even when populated, we believe).  They are all sold as-is, needing repair and a few parts.

Quick Game Facts

At the time Gorf was released most vertical shooter games (such as Galaxian or Space Invaders), usually only had one level that was repeated for the entire game. Gorf was a bit different, the game features five different missions, including a Space Invaders like mission, a Laser Attack mission, a Galaxian mission, a Space Warp mission and the Flag ship mission. After defeating all five missions players are promoted in rank from Space Cadet up through Space Avenger.

Gorf was one of the first games to feature digitized speech. In the game the player is taunted by the Gorfian leader, with phrases such as, “You cannot defeat my Gorfian empire”. Another unique feature of the game is the wonderful backlighting. In addition the game marquee, the header above the monitor and the one below the control are backlit.
