Several years ago, I picked up Granada in a group lot of games. It sat in storage for a while and before I even worked on it, I had a few tepid offers to purchase the game as-is. Nothing much became of those offers and Granada sat idle - until at my son's urging, we set it up and started working on it.

What a game!!!

Built in 1972, Granada is the add-a-ball version of Spanish Eyes (well, in art package only, the playfields are dissimilar). The game uses the two-inch flippers, and I'd be willing to bet that this was one of the very last use of two-inch flippers as the primary flippers!

If you like games like Gottlieb's Target Pool (I personally love TP!), Granada is like Target Pool on steroids! Like Target Pool, you have few direct shots at your objectives. Unlike Target Pool, you have TWO main objectives: Spell GRANADA by getting the ball through all of the roll-over switches, and complete the 1 thru 10 lights on the playfield by hitting the ten stand-up targets. Completing each objective, lights a "SPECIAL" which awards you an extra ball and lights a kicker for 5000 points. Completing BOTH objectives and getting both SPECIALS lights the SUPER SPECIAL for two extra balls. Also, unlike Target Pool, once each objective is completed, and the SPECIAL is collected, the objective is reset again so you can try to earn another extra ball!

Bumping and nudging skills are a must, as are skills on using the shooter. There are five lanes at the top of the game. The pop bumpers will occasionally shoot the ball up through one of the top lanes, but for the most part, you need to collect them through shooting them on your own!

This may be "Old Skool" pinball, but it's also not a slow and plodding game; it's very fast, and those two-inch flippers are powered by FL 21-375/28-400 flipper coils, so the flippers are plenty strong!

If you ever chance to play Granada, go and play it! It's a fabulous game!

My copy is currently operating at Pop Bumpers Pinball in Weymouth, Massachusetts. I've watched people play it for hours at a time! It's fun, tough, and very addictive!
