Shuffleboard is an arcade game that was released by Midway Games in 1978; it runs upon an Intel 8080 microprocessor (running at 1.9968 MHz), and the players must use a trackball for puck control (with a single button to switch between two variations at the start of the game). It was one of the first games to use a trackball, and like M-4 before it, was developed by Arcade Engineering for Midway - and the pucks on the right (first) player's side are checkered while those on the left (second) player's side are white (and, if only one person is playing, the role of the second player is taken by the CPU). Where the pucks land on the board determines the amount of points you receive (1 to 3 in "Game 1" and 7 to 10 in "Game 2"), and whoever has the highest score at the end of the game is declared the winner; meaning that if the CPU has a higher score than the player at the end of a 1-player match it will have beaten him. Also, if you roll too far in Game 2 the puck will land in "10 FOR OPPONENT".
