I have a 4 player Gottlieb Target Alpha EM for sale. Has been in my collection for years and I have another game with the same playfield so one has to go.

It's in absolutely super condition and has a new CPR backglass.

The pics speak for themselves and I'll take additional pics if there is anything specific you'd like to see.

Pickup in Southern NJ or will ship NAVL.

$2250

Post edited by Mojosan : incorrectly described as a wedgehead. Sorry.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe Target Alpha is considered a wedgehead.

You are correct^
Only single players have the distinctive tapering back box shape also known as a wedgehead.

Also from IPDB is the info on the shared playfield.
This playfield was produced by Gottlieb for the following electro-mechanical games :
a 1-player replay version called Gottlieb's 1975 'El Dorado',
a 1-player add-a-ball version called Gottlieb's 1975 'Gold Strike',
a 1-player add-a-ball version for Italy called Gottlieb's 1975 'Lucky Strike',
a 4-player replay version called Gottlieb's 1976 'Target Alpha',
a 4-player replay version for France called Gottlieb's 1976 'Canada Dry', and
a 2-player replay version called Gottlieb's 1977 'Solar City'.

Also later produced as a 4-player solid-state game Premier's 1984 'El Dorado City of Gold'.

You're right. My bad, I removed "wedgehead" form the description.

I have El Dorado as well and just think of them as similar machines. Just a mild brain fart.
