It’s been a while since I’ve picked up a new game. As a matter of fact, as the year comes to an end, I believe this is my first pickup for 2010. Over the weekend, I struck up a deal and picked up a fully working Ms. Pac-Man. The cabinet is solid but like most Ms. Pac-Man cabinets, the paint has seen better days. The monitor has screen burn but it’s not noticeable at all when the game is powered on. The original wiring is gone, replaced with Jamma wiring and a Ms. Pac-Man Jamma adapter. While I prefer the games to be all original, the replacement wiring doesn’t bother me too much. It is missing the original Ms. Pac-Man monitor bezel, it has a black monitor bezel in it’s place. I’ll definitely be trying to score an original bezel.
I haven’t had a chance to get any pictures yet. I’ll try to get some tonight. If you don’t know the history of Ms. Pac-Man, here is her entry in the Killer List of Video Games. Here are the scans of the original marketing flyers for Ms. Pac-Man, courtesy of Arcade-Museum.com:
As usual, I’ve set up a dedicated photo gallery just for Ms. Pac-Man. Check back tomorrow for some pictures of the cabinet!
