It's not super popular, though. The Midway Touchmaster games were far outnumbered by the Merit MegaTouch machines (I've never seen one on location in my life, but I've seen dozens of Merit machines), and by that time most people played solitaire for free on Windows.
Anyway, someone with a working PCB please film what happens when you repro this - either way it'll be interesting.
