Item description

I have two examples of Gottlieb "The Games", plus a nearly complete spare playfield. $850--buyer takes all. Easy pick-up, no stairs. I can help with loading into your vehicle.

This title was designed for the 1984 Summer Olympics.

Both games are working projects. All the boards and displays in the backbox appear to be in working order.

Both backglasses have been sealed with triple thick.

In game 1:
-The power cord has been replaced
-The cabinet has been vacuumed and cleaned
-The coin door has been disassembled, repainted, and reinstalled
-The power supply has been rebuilt and grounding wire modification added.
-Faulty chips on the MPU & displays have been socketed and replaced.
-Faulty pop bumper boards have been replaced.
-Connectors in the backbox have been repinned.
-New metal lift channel for backglass (from gatecrasher)

Game 2 has pretty much been left untouched. The backbox on this game was repaired by a previous owner with (ugly) angle brackets. The original lift channel has been cleaned up and the backglass has new plastic trim.

Between the two games, the playfields have some of the typical wear around the inserts, but the spare playfield is the nicest. The spare playfield is missing a pop bumper board and vari-target, but otherwise appears to be complete. The spare playfield will need to have a vari-target installed before it can be used since it is a primary section of the switch matrix.

Both machines are able to start a game, however, there are still a handful of switch and lamp issues that need to be addressed on each playfield--most likely resolved by replacing bulbs, replacing flaky sockets, and cleaning switch contacts.

Legs are included for each game. I can also include a new set of 4 pop bumper caps, new stand-up target faces, new plastic flipper bats, a set of rubbers, a spare power supply, a spare set of siderails, and a spare sheet of used playfield glass.
