The same guy who has recently sold the Monkey Magic upright, is now offering a Nintendo EVR Race on Yahoo Japan. Seems he has quite a collection of rarities Smiley

For the historians:

EVR Race is a Nintendo developed and manufactured arcade video game released in 1975. Nintendo regards the game as the first title they ever released, omitting Laser Clay Shooting System whose inclusion could be argued. Genyo Takeda created the video game, which has led Shigeru Miyamoto to consider him Nintendo's first video game designer. EVR Race was extremely large and six players could participate. In the game, horses would race on the screen and the players were required to predict which horse would win. The game was extremely complicated, so after Nintendo released the game they had a hard time maintaining it and there were a lot of breakdowns. Due to their experience with EVR Race, Nintendo learned how difficult it was maintaining arcade games.

Exactly! Computer space as a game definitively SUCKS,  but apart from the historic importance the cabinet itself is a piece of art which will stand the test of time no matter whether the game works at all or not.

Very cool!  It unfortunately appears to be missing the parts that actually allow the players to interact with it  Embarrassed
