First solid state game from this manufacturer.

This game was also produced as a 4-player EM version Gottlieb's 1977 'Cleopatra' and a 2-player EM version Gottlieb's 1978 'Pyramid' but with different backglass art.

We asked Wayne Neyens about the metal cabinet version shown in this listing. He comments:
I think that it was Doc's idea but I forget. It had many draw backs, as I recall it was very noisy, hard to assemble and needed more room than we had available to do the assembly.
Wayne refers to Roman F. "Doc" Garbark, head of mechanical engineering at Gottlieb.

Also in this listing are pictures of the System 1 whitewood game. The date of the whitewood is given to us as 'early 1976'.

We previously showed a date for this game of November 11, 1977. The new date is per Gottlieb documentation.
