BOARD # 834-0068
PROM STICKERS: from 606 to 610.

Sega's Frogger came in a rather plain looking Sega cabinet known as the 'Convert-a-Cab'. The cabinets had wood grain sides, and the monitor was laid back at a 45 degree angle (just like the monitor in a "Ms. Pac-Man"). The control panel, monitor bezel, and marquee all have a single tire tread graphic that continues on all of them. Most machines have a large sticker for sideart. This game uses the Konami Classic wiring harness, but it doesn't have any buttons, which limits plug and play conversion quite a bit.

TRIVIA

Frogger was released in October 1981 in the USA by Sega/Gremlin, under license from Konami, and was the first major hit for Sega (In 1982, "Zaxxon" became their number one game.)

UPDATES

In Sega set 2, the attract mode has been extended to feature gameplay instructions.

In Sega set 3, scoring is slightly different: Each forward hop is worth 50 points instead of 10, meaning the maximum points per home is 500, and each frog safely put in a home is worth 100 points instead of 50.
