Cinematronics – Manuals, Flyers, and Space Wars PCB Board!


We’re really going back to the past today. Does anyone know what the first video game ever made was? The answer: Spacewar! This game was made by Steve Russell at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) using a monster of a computer which would take up an entire room!

Of course, this was in the 60’s. Later on in the 70’s, a man by the name of Larry Rosenthal sold the game to Cinematronics and the arcade version was born. Today, I would like to show a few rare items from Cinematronic’s history.

This is a PCB board for Space Wars which is the arcade version of Spacewar (first video game ever made). The board is currently here on eBay for a great price.

Here are a few more great and interesting Cinematronics items:

Dragon’s Lair Arcade Flyer Framed – Here’s the original flyer made to show off Dragon’s Lair before it’s release. The flyer has been framed and is a perfect game room item.

Space Ace Arcade Flyer – An original flyer for Space Ace (known to some has Dragon’s Lair 2).

Star Castle Manual – This is an original manual for Star Castle which was one of the first arcade machines made in the 80’s.

Rip Off Manual – This is a re-print of the manual for Rip Off. It has no real value, but collectors may want to experience reading the manual.

Space Wars Service Manual – Here’s a re-print of the Space Wars service manual. I mentioned it’s history above. Keeping that story in mind, it would probably be an interesting read…
