Product Description

In Granada, one of the most impressive building projects of the Middle Ages has begun: the construction of Alhambra. A palace, fortress, and a small city -- all-in-one -- Alhambra is made up of the world's most beautiful gardens, pavilions, chambers and towers.

The most prominent builders in all of Europe and Arabia want to demonstrate their skills. Employ the most talented teams of builders to construct your Alhambra. Hire stonemasons from the north and gardeners from the south, who all want a fair wage and insist on being paid with their native currency. With their help, towers can be constructed, gardens designed, pavilions and mezzanines erected, and manors and royal chambers built. Compete against your opponents to build the greatest and most impressive Alhambra.

Excellent fun!

I am not easy to please when it comes to games, but this game is in my top five! I love that it can be played with 2 just as nicely as with 6. It's fun, and not as expensive as many other games of it's caliber. I've played it countless times since we got it for Christmas. The game requires strategy, but my 11-year-old nephew could keep up just fine. The game is well made, and the play is simple to teach others. Loved it!

Alhambra is a beautiful fun game!

This game is one of our favorite games to play with 2 players. The pieces are sturdy and the colors on the tiles are gorgeous. Since there are different ways to further your scoring points at the end of the rounds, you can play different strategies with each game. Each game is different and fun. I can imagine it will only get better when we play with 3 or 4 players too -- highly recommended. Also we suggest trying Acquire, Lost Cites, Cartegena, and Ta YĆ¼ if anyone is looking for some great 2-player games.

This game has become my wife's favorite. You never know how this game is going to end. The tile laying is fun, and you always have plenty of options. For every game a different strategy can be used. Wonderfull for two players. I have not played it with more than two, but imagine it would be even more interesting. Get this game.
