Description

This was made from an original Pac-Man board, a Bartop Poker machine (Super Duper Casino by U.S. Games to be exact), and a *lot* of patience. When I got the 'Super ABC' kit from Two Bit score over 2 years ago (which lets you play 16 different versions of Pac/Ms. Pac), I wanted to get an empty PacMan board and build a small version of the Arcade Machine. Note: this is not an emulator; this is an actual PacMan board with the chips replaced.

The big deal was rotating the monitor. The 'Super Duper Casino' board that was in it used a 9" horizontal monitor. I had to make new brackets that supported the monitor vertically.

The PacMan Circuit board itself takes up the whole bottom of the cabinet (actually, I had to expand the bottom by 1" around to get it to fit...)

I then painted it yellow, printed the side art/control panel/monitor bezel and viola! A mini Pac-Man game! =)

The dimensions are: 14" Wide, 16" high, and 20" Deep. Unfortunately, I no longer have this game. I cannot get accurate measurements any longer. But, somewhere out on the net there should be dimentions for the original game that was in there...

Special Thanks to Blobby for helping me with the Artwork! ;)
