Not to be confused with Dart Tag target.

The Tech Target is a Nerf accessory that was released in 2003 under the unnamed 2003 series. It requires three "AA" batteries to be operated.

It came packaged with the Tech Target Set and the Tech Target 2-Player Set.

Details

It is a electronic target board that keeps score as players fire at it to score points in one of three differnt game modes.

One game has players getting the highest score in nine shots. Another game has players firing at the targets to count down from ninety-nine. In the final game the Tech Target emits a noise and players must fire at a specific area of the target. The re-released version featured three different games but did not allow for two players.
