I bought my Grand Lizard back in 1994 for nothing more than a parts box. The playfield looked chewed up at the time but little did I know that almost all Grand Lizards have significant playfield wear. My game isn't as bad as many others I've seen. After playing a couple other Grand Lizards, I've decided that I will restore the game rather than use it as a parts box. I found a spare MPU board back in 2001 that I bought since the board in this game looked as though it had been on fire. The power supply board had been hard-wired which ultimately caused the MPU board to burn up. I decided to repair the power supply board in early 2007 and at least I have that part of the game done. The game is still standing on end waiting to be restored but not sure when I'll get around to doing it. I'll be sure and take lots of restoration pictures showing the before and after state of the game when I get around to it.
Grand Lizard was produced by Williams in April of 1986 with 2,750 units released. The game features 4 flippers, a player controlled magna-save, a 2 or 3-ball multi-ball, timed drop targets, mystery bonus ramp scoring, no pop bumpers, and a plastic lizard head on top of plastic ramps. The creature roars and eyes flash when ball enters the lizard head. The pinball returns to the playfield from the lizard's tongue. The game was designed by Barry Oursler and Python Anghelo with artwork by Python Anghelo and Paul Farris. The game has a multi-level playfield similar to Williams' 1981 Solar Fire.
