Well …. Got another one..
I’ve always loved Joust and even while I was restoring my favorite machine, Centipede, I kept an eye out for an original Joust project/restoration. What I learned is that they are not easy to come by.. Working / restored machines are selling for a considerable amount.
Buried in a Facebook Marketplace ad for a bunch of machines was a reference to a Joust cabinet that had been converted to a Silkworm. The Joust boards were in some other cabinet that had some crazy setup to switch back and forth between it and some other game. After getting a few pictures and going back and forth with the seller – I was determined to make this poor machine back into a Joust again!
Beneath the brown paint and TECMO sticker – an original Joust will be back!
