Box Side  ‑  Bonus Art!!
The side of the box features the arcade game's
control panel art, before its top and bottom edges
were trimmed off to fit the metal.  This art reveals
that Dirk & Singe are standing on piles of gold coins.

The game has good graphic quality, using the standard PR slides that Bluth's company distributed to the media, with the popular screenshot images that saw regular print media use, except for the extended view of the artwork for the front edge of the arcade control panel, which has not been known to have ever appeared anywhere else.  Additionally, in-house artwork was created for the top layer of the gameboard and for the Shift Board card.  The game was produced in 1984.
Observations:  Only during a 3 or 4 player game is there any strategic concern or benefit with carefully choosing which direction to shift the gameboard (horizontal or vertical) in order to intentionally get your pawn onto a white space to avoid continued attacks from the other players.  If, at any point during the game, the situation ever arises where the top space on the gameboard is black, and no player is holding either an Action Card or a Shift Board Card among their 5 cards, then that game immediately and permanently becomes impossible for anyone to win.  (This can only happen during a 2 or 3 player game.)  The Action Card with the Black Knight calls for a Sword Card, but according to the video game action, should be a Jump Card.  The card that shows Dirk attacking the Robot Knight in the Chapel calls for a Jump Card, but according to the video game action, should be a Sword Card, although, credit where due, the text does mention that the floor is charged, even though no floor charge appears in the image, so the person who wrote that at least had a clue!  The Dragon, Giddy Goons, and Snakes cards also conflict with the video game and should call for a Jump Card, but the game was to have 7 of each type of Action Card.  The USA card with the Elevator Floor has stylized "You're Falling!" text, while the French Canadian version does not.  The French Canadian "START" space adds the word "DEPART".
