Steven Frank recalls mastering Dragon’s Lair:

Everyone who has seen Dragon’s Lair before has seen the beginning of the game. Dirk runs across the drawbridge, Dirk dodges the falling blocks, he swings across the fire ropes, and he drops on the falling disc platform. Far fewer have seen the scenes in the middle of the game. Fewer still have ever seen how it ends.

I remember it well. So much money, so little reward. Pleased to hear of someone who beat the confounded thing, even if it meant buying a cabinet to do so.
