TRIVIA

Released in October 1978. This was one of the earliest games to use a trackball. While "Atari Football" was in development first, Shuffleboard was actually released at almost the same time.

The game was designed for Midway by Arcade Engineering - a design firm founded by two former Allied Leisure employees. Arcade Engineering also designed "Dogpatch", "M-4" and "4-Player Bowling" for Midway.
