definatly depends on who is selling them "as-is"
unless you have good repairing skills, in my experience 9/10 as-is means tested and dead
if you know they are truely "as-is" untested then they are worth a bit more :)

if they don't have the roms - $10 at the most

be a bit more specific

are these the pac man/galaxian clones on the same board like the LAI Ghost muncher/uniwars double?

Are they original midway boards?

How many all up?

once we have a better idea of the deal we can be more precise with price.

oh ok

if that is the case cavanor - please don't fish for what you should bid on for an ebay auction and not tell us

just show the auction and let us know if X is a good deal.

i am terribly sorry

Ok - you have four midway galaxian based boards - converted to use DC power (good thing) running clone roms - if they are all ghost muncher/uniwars, i am pretty sure you are missing a ROM on the end of the daughter board (mine has all the roms filled up) - note how the one on the bottom left has all the roms on the daughter board

however if 1 board works you could always dump the rom and then burn it - it uses a 2532 ROM - so you need something like an odler data i/o programmer for that (which i have if you get desparate) - and some blank ROMS

for a working board $50 for the non-working $10-$20

all up - maybe offer $100?

I wouldn't mind swapping one of my non-working original Midway Galaxian boards for one of the non-working boards there, as I don't have one of them.
Can burn an eprom for you to give it the four in one version if you need it.

Cheers,
Xygt

i was told a board is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it :) i have a 1942 board for sale at the moment and i am letting the masses decide its worth :)
