The cocktail version of Warlords is different from the upright version in that it supports up to 4 players and uses a 14-inch color raster-scan monitor with no backdrop or overlay.

The 2 upper castles always have the Crown/Black Knight images oriented in favor of any human players controlling those castles on the opposite side of the cabinet.

1- and 2-player games play identical to upright version, except that Warlords can occupy any of the four castles.

3- and 4-player games are free-for-alls; there is only one round, no point scoring, and the game ends as soon as only one castle remains.
TRIVIA
 
1,253 Cocktail units were produced (more than the Upright model).

For more information about the game itself, please see the Upright model entry.
