Noteworthy features

    Trivia

    • The original artwork on prototype in 2014 was more gray and green. After first feedback from public on Expo Chicago 2014, it was changed to a more colourful design, especially in the middle of the playfield, where Smaug is displayed.

    Backbox ornament(s)

    The backbox has an LCD TGT HD screen instead of a dotmatrix display, and a secondary monitor on the playfield

    Video mode

    This machine has no dot matrix or video display, so it has no videmode.
