Notes:

– We decided to pick up a cocktail Joust for our collection
– Originally design as a kit game, the monitor orientation was picked because there were more vertical cabinets than horizontal ones. This was a mistake.
–┬áThe graphics, sounds and game play are better than Joust, but the monitor being vertical ruins it. You don’t joust, you dive bomb.
– Monitor needs some work
