Now this game inspires me to make it in 1K.
"YAHT-K"

( to be coded after "10=" )

Could come pretty close with no pretty stuff at all. Numbers instead of dice etc. etc. Keep your own score on paper and I can do it in 200 bytes I bet :lol:

I need more info on this machine ... can you share the history and some pics of the inside?

Sorry for going off-topic but I find these custom keyboards as cases fascinating.

That is ordinary Z-ZEE which needs a UDG board on real ZX81 to see the UDG's, you need to run it as instructed in Eighty One for the UDG effect if you don't have the UDG board.
If you could run it in Eighty One and take a screen shot with at least one of the dice held I can tell which version you have.

This shows game in inverse and normal screen with dice 3 and 4 held.

Sorry about poor picture quality.

@dadekoza

It is just a keyboard I made with microswitches. I printed a picture of the Timex Sinclair 1000 keyboard from at Walgreens. I modified the picture by stretching it out and moving the text on the keys over a bit. I printed blue circles where I drilled the holes for the switches. Then I used Modge Podge to affix it to a mahogany sheet of thin plywood. The box houses the regular computer and a 16k expansion module. The only mod to the computer is the keyboard of course and a modern voltage regulator. I replace the keyboard connectors with screw down terminals and use 2 rj45 connectors to plug in the keyboard. I Modge Podged all of the wood as a protective finish and screwed it all together.
