Alhambra is a beautiful fun game!
September 09, 2005

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 Yü 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.
Great game

Alhambra is a fun light- to medium-weight game. Each player purchases buildings and adds them to their own palace complex. You get points for having the most of a type of building. You have to have the right kind of currency to get a building. And you have to fit the building into your complex in the right way, a bit like a puzzle.

I put off getting this game for a long time because frankly I thought it was little boring to look at. But finally after reading all the great reviews and realizing it got the 2003 Game of the Year Award, I decided to try it. I’m very glad I did. It’s not boring at all to play, and the artwork is actually nice too.

My wife and I have played this game four times so far, both with 2 and 4 players. Everyone that has played has really liked it. For the 2 player version, you have to use a dummy player, but it works well. I highly recommend this game.
