I own a Polybius board. It's not Jamma so I can't hook it up though, so no screen shots.

No, I got it at a garage sale of some old guy when I lived in Seattle a few years back. He was retired and had a bunch of boards. He told me there was some game in there that I had to be careful with but didn't realize what it was until many years later. He died a few months later and never got a chance to discuss it more with him.

I am afraid to plug it in as I don't want to damage it.

That is all I can say.

Sounds like a case for Jason to investigate! I'm sure he can get that board working and reveal the hypnotic stuff programmed in that pcb.

Are there any unique features in the board, such as a company logo or is it pretty generic?
