All the early game boards had a fixed frame design and different internal mechanisms, and varying depths depending on game mechanisms.Bonus Game, Give Or Keep, Any Number, Bullseye I, Clock Game, 2-Player Auction, and Double Digits (the first board to sport a game name) all had the same basic frame design. Money Game was an elongated variation, and Mystery Price was the first to debut a distinct design.

Just behind him, you can see the "crawl drum," a small device that contains the credits on a long roll of black paper. A motor operates the drum and the paper rolls the credits past the camera lens. To the left is the "short credits" crawl.
