You know, it would be nice if you shared what you found so people won't have to ask that question in the future.

It's not a mirror.  That myth finally got busted.

What is it then? I'm unaware of the myth, it's busting, etc.

In the past I've read this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Traveler_(video_game)#/media/File:Arcade_closeup_part2.jpg

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Traveler_(video_game)

So please update wikipedia and the rest of us clueless ones on the subject :-)

I played it once... I think it was at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. Just like you'd imagine with a laserdisc game it was terrible and nonsensical and not responsive, but fascinating nonetheless.

Shiny black plastic, no silver mirror.

Which makes sense if you've actually played one and seen how it looks in person.

You'll have to forgive my memory. Last time I played was 25 years ago. I do remember that it was a good day. I met Janet at Worlds of Fun that day. God she was hot. Now THAT I remember. Black plastic discs... not so much.

I love time traveler. I think it gets a bad rap because it's not exciting in the sense that it's a twitch kind of game, but I think it's great fun and innovative. I run it on my main cabinet. It plays just fine, of course it's not 3D, but you still can play the game itself.

When i was a kid i remember my nathans had a time traveler, except one of the buttons would ALWAYS be broken.. some times even the start button probably. But i remember thinking it was one of the coolest things. I totally forgot about it until pretty recently i was looking through my friends binder of arcade flyers and saw it! good memories.. also wwe superstar xavier woods hosts a video game/arcade webshow and this past week was playing one somewhere.

Screw the measurements.  I'm mad he won't share how he traveled through time...

There's a Time Traveler at the NYC Barcade. I hate how stupid fun that game is.

Man, I forgot you're in NY!  I'm heading to the Cradle of Aviation arcade night in Garden City on Sat.  You should go.
