Be patient, they still do and will come up for sale.
Both originals and the Rottendog remakes.
Just be ready to pay when you do, the replacement has jumped cost from $295 to $500-600.

For people that are not aware the reason they are hard to find is they have obsolete electronic parts that no longer exist commercially, and was part of the reason Rottendog stopped making them several years ago.
This is one PCB hobbyists should NOT attempt to repair for themselves, unless they have the necessary experience and tools.

Quoted from Betelgeuse:

I actually was not aware that these boards were no longer being reproduced, or that reproduction or even repair was so complicated. Does this mean that all WPC95 games are doomed? This seems like a pretty common failure point.

No, unless an owner decides to hack up their board.
I refuse to work on these boards myself due to traces.
This is an Achilles heel for games that use this combined board for now.
This will certainly change in the future, as I suspect an improved replacement will be created out of necessity, just like other boards of the past.

There was a time for example that GTB System 80 and System 1 were "doomed" as well, and that was less than 15 years ago.
