Quoted from ChrisHibler:

I’ve always thought that of the multi-player versions of this PF layout, Canada Dry has the best artwork. But it’s still going to play like Target Alpha, which IMHO, boring compared to Eldorado, which I don’t think is that great anyway. I’m sure I’m in the minority with that opinion. I’d still own a Canada Dry if I could though. It would be good in a large collection.

Ya the problem with multi player games is every ball is the first ball.

Not all of them. College Queens/Airport the shots progress depending on what ball you are on. Lots of the 60s games have progressive rules and even extra balls that stay lit from ball to ball, player to player and even game to game. Dodge City, Paradise and Shipmates for example.

Let's get this rolling. boilerman where are you??? I'd pay you for a high resolution scan.
John Greatwich told me once that if he had the artfile, he could print directly onto a sanded
smooth "Target Alpha" playfield. I would much prefer that, because the end product would be
cheaper, and would look more authentic because of the original nature of the wood and the underside
of the original playfield. I'm going to try to talk to John again, and see if he could and would be willing to
do this.

I totally agree. Although most seem to prefer single-player EMs, I find multi-players more exciting. I’ve sold all the single-players I had (other than a woodrail) because my wife and I like to compete, but I also prefer to get a new start every ball rather than trying to build up through a single-player ruleset. I’m probably in the minority on this, but I find Target Alpha more exciting than El Dorado. Each ball is a new chance to knock down all the drop targets.

To each his own, but I think you're in the minority there. I want to make a "Canada Dry" out of a "Target Alpha", but obviously the gameplay will be just as boring.

Sorry. I re-stated what you already said.

No problem. But if you want to spice up your Target Alpha, just put it on high tap, put in some flashing color LEDs, yellow dot flipper coils, super bands, banana flippers, and a disco ball topper. (How many buttons did I just push?)

#65 31 days ago

Yeah, you pushed them all!

True, but, it is possible to improve the gameplay with a resetting drop targets.

Here is the modification (in French) :

You forgot to add a white ceramic ball and to jack up the back legs an additional 3 inches.
