INSTALLATION
Unpack and install the CONCORDE 3plus on a flat surface. The box and all packing
materials should be stored in case the machine needs to be returned to an authorized JVL service
center at a later date.
Attach the power cord beside the on/off switch at the rear of the machine. Plug the machine
into a standard AC outlet.
The CONCORDE 3plus must be grounded. Do not use a cheater plug.
JVL recommends installing the CONCORDE 3plus with an external surge suppresser with
a built in circuit breaker. Suitable surge protectors are available at most hardware and electrical
supply stores.
POWERING UP
The CONCORDE 3plus requires a few seconds to power up during which time the computer carries out an extensive systems diagnostics check. If no problems are detected, the opening screen will appear. If problems are detected please refer to the troubleshooting guide.
While the CONCORDE 3plus has been preset and is ready for play, it is recommended
that an operator run the initial tests, calibrate the touch screen, and test the Coin Acceptor and
Banknote Validator. (Chapter 2 - Setup and Adjustments)
COMPACT DISC PLAYER
On the Countertop model the Compact Disc player is located at the back of the machine. A
metal panel is held in place with a screw, which protects it from customer tampering.
On the Upright model the Compact Disc player is located inside the machine behind the
main cash door.
The CONCORDE 3plus is shipped with the game disc installed.
*Game CD upgrades are issued periodically. Contact your JVL distributor for pricing information.
BANKNOTE VALIDATOR
JVL’s optional CashCode® banknote validator comes in a stacker design with a cassette storage capacity of 400 new bills. The banknote validator will accept bills inserted in any of the four directions. It will continue
to operate if either of the lockable doors are open or a game is in progress.
The unit includes dual magnetic and optical protection against counterfeit currency, and mechanical protection against fraud.

STRATEGY
BACKGAMMON
The players move their stones in
alternating turns according to a throw
of two dice. The goal is to be the first
to move all of the stones to the player’s cradle. Stones are moved counter-clockwise around the board.
It’s not allowed to place a stone
on a notch where the opponent has
two or more stones. If a player moves
a stone onto a notch in which the opponent has only one stone, the opponent’s stone is placed on the Bar. A
player with a stone on the Bar must
free the bar before any other stone
may be moved.
COSMI CHECKERS
The objective is to jump over, thus
capturing the opponent’s pieces. Ordinary pieces only move and jump
forward. The pieces reaching the 8th
line of the checkerboard become
kings and are able to jump and move
in any direction. The greater the
number of jumps, the more points it
is worth.
YAHTZEE

VIRUS ATTACK
Occupy the majority of the 49square grid. A player moves his pieces
to the desired location with the intention of outflanking his opponent.
There are three legal moves in Virus Attack: 1. A ball may be moved to
any adjacent open square, either vertically or horizontally, by touching the
screen and moving a ball. This causes a
new ball to appear while keeping the
original position. 2. An opponent’s ball
may be “jumped” and automatically is
converted to the player’s color. A ball
can also jump over a blank space. 3. A
ball may be moved in a three-square
“L” like a Knight in Chess.
In the case of points 2 and 3, the original ball(s) disappears. All of the opponent’s balls
adjoining where a player lands are captured. The tiles a player can move to, are outlined in a
colour.

CLASSIC SOLITAIRE
Solitaire is a single player game.
The cards are laid out automatically at
the beginning of the game. You can touch
the New Deck button to get a different
layout at any point in the game to start
over.
The object is to reveal all the hidden cards in the deck and stacks. You win
when no cards are left in the unplayed
deck and the stacks.
To move a card, touch it with a finger and then touch the desired location.
Concealed cards are automatically
flipped over. If you run out of time you
may choose to buy more time and finish the game - this will set the score to 0.
FREE CELL
This card game plays just like Solitaire, but all the cards are already on display and must be arranged in ascending
order on the four Ace stacks. Free Cell has
three game areas:
Column cards must be arranged in
descending order, alternating between
red and black.
Cards may be moved on and off the
four free cells, as well as any open stack.
But cards once placed on the ace stacks
may not be played again. New allows a
player to begin a new game at any time.
THIRTY ONE
The game is played in several rounds.
At each turn a player can change 1 or 3
cards from his/her hand for the ones in the
middle pool. By touching a single card from
the middle pool or the “All” icon the player
may exchange his/her cards from the middle pool. When the desired hand is achieved,
the player may choose to either “Pass” once
or “Knock” (depending on the score). If the
desired hand is achieved the player may
“Knock” to announce their last turn. After
a change, the hands are compared. The opponent with the lesser score loses a coin.
Four losses of coins pushes a player out of
the game. The goal is to push–out both opponents. The score of a hand is the sum of
cards in a certain suit. Face cards are worth 10, aces 11. Three cards of a kind are worth 30.5. An ace and
two face cards of the same suit form “Bingo - 31”. Three Aces allow the player to announce “Fire” and
beat both opponents at once. If a player “Knocks” and by chance one of the opponent has the same
score, the one who “Knocked” loses.

Queen and King all equal 10; and an
Ace equals either 1 or 11.
A player touches any of the five
hands he wants to place the cards on.
Cards may be placed in any order. The
closer one is to a perfect score of 105
(21 X five) the higher the points scored.
Bonus points are awarded for speed.
You may Pass one card and use it later.
Strategy Hint: If you have a 10 or face card with an Ace being counted as 11, it converts to 1,allowing you an extra card without lowering the score.
PICK 2
Remove cards by forming numerical pairs or cards in ascending order. If
no selection is possible, touch the deck
for a new card. The open card in the
deck can also be used to form a pair.
Bonus points are awarded for clearing
the playing field.

point total closer to, but not over, 21.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE:
CD-ROM READ ERROR! MAKE SURE CD-ROM IS PRESENT AND CLEAN
·
·
Check to make sure the disk is installed in the CD-ROM drive and it is not damaged.
If the disk is OK make sure that the CD-ROM drive is working correctly. This can be determined by observing the LED on the front of the drive if it flashes more frequently than
normal. If the LED only flashes once upon power up and never again or if the LED stays on
constantly then probably the drive is most likely defective.
CD-ROM NOT FOUND – CHECK CABLES
·
This message is displayed if the CD-ROM drive ribbon cable is not connected properly or
damaged, or the power is not connected to the drive.
IF IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO LOAD THE PROGRAM
·
If the CD-ROM drive has been changed and it now takes longer than normal to load the
games, check the jumper on the back of the CD-ROM drive and make sure it is in the Master
position.
