  • The standard/upright cabinet of Wizard of Wor is specifically designed so that the hardware can be serviced from the front of the machine. The coin door is equipped with a sliding mechanism where the main motherboard is secured on rails that can slide out the front where the arcade operator can easily access the game's mechanics, saving operators the trouble of pulling the machine away from its floor spot and accessing the hardware from the back of the cabinet.

  • The motherboard of the arcade game Gorf can be placed inside a Wizard of Wor cabinet as both games share much of the same technology, but the game cannot be played.
