Wizard of Wor?
« on: June 04, 2017, 11:47:57 am »
A friend of my wife's has a working Wizard of Wor.  Its been in his house for a decade or so and appears from the pictures to be in good shape.  He claims everything works on it.  I would assume that its possible the monitor will need a cap kit and it will need some general cleaning up.

I am not a particular fan of the game, but the artwork is really cool and its an early midway.  If I can get it for a good price I may just clean it up and keep it - or offer it in trade for something I really want. 

He floated a price of $500 for it.  What is a reasonable price to offer do you all think?  :)

not a bad price in my book.. but not a good price.  If its up and playing and all three sound channels are working then I would go for it.. its a great looking game that had good replay value and is blast with 2 people.

Holy crap cw lives!  Where have you been man?


$500 is about right for a nice working WoW.  Try to get it down some.

I was aggressive and offered him $300.  I expected a counter - but he took the offer.  Turns out it was his partner's machine and he passed away a few years ago.  Its been in their house for the past 15 years.  He claims it works 100%.  At $300 I will take my chances - he told me he just wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it and didn't want to deal with a bunch of strangers on CL or Ebay (he knows my wife).

So I am picking it up tomorrow.  I will post more pics once I have it in my possession :)

I really like playing Wizard of Wor... it's one of my favorites.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

I love out of the ordinary grabs. Maybe me considering this out of the ordinary shows my age/inexperience.

I dig the colours of the cab. Got a nice classic vibe to it.
