Notes: If the Game Prom Number determines the Model Number of this game, then the Model Number of this game is either 689 or 689A, depending on which Prom is installed in any particular game. The literature is a bit confusing in this regard. The original Instruction Manual has no Model Number printed on its blue cover. Inside the cover are printed these three notations, one in parentheses:

• (Game #689)

• Game Prom 689

• Sound Prom 689/S

The game underwent some wiring and fusing redesign, and a new Game Prom 689A was installed. These changes were apparently made after production started, and a second manual with the same blue cover was issued for those games. This time, the notation GAME #689A is printed on the cover, and an Addendum page titled (Game #689A) lists the changes, pointing out the Game Prom is now 689A. However, inside the cover are these notations showing the Game Number did not change, only the Prom Number:

• (Game #689)

• Game Prom 689A

• Sound Prom 689/S
