Drake says: "Alhambra is really a majority area scoring game. There are three scoring rounds. Your primary score comes from having the most buildings of a certain color or type. Second and third place also give you points in later scoring rounds. Players must efficiently purchase the desired buildings. Without the exact change, players must decide whether to spend more money or wait another turn and risk a building being purchased by another player."

John says: "Alhambra feels kind of like a stock market game, except each player is building their own areas around their Alhambra. It's better with just a few players. Choices become a bit more limited with 5 and 6 players. With 2 players, you MUST play with the "Dirk" variant. Alhambra has a short playing time, which is usually around 40 minutes. The 3 scoring phases keep the tension level high."


Dirk Henn


Granada, 1278. At the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, one of the most exciting and interesting projects of the Spanish Middle Ages begins: the construction of Alhambra.

Experience, over the course of the game, determines how the construction of this Spanish wonder takes place. The game is easy to learn: just a few rules and you're ready to play.

Each round, you must decide: Do you take a currency note, so that later on you can acquire a valuable piece of the Palace - a Pavilion or a Manor for example?

Or do you purchase one of the available Palace pieces to expand your Alhambra? Be careful as you won't receive any change. However, if you can pay the exact amount, you will get another turn immediately!

During the scoring rounds, you will receive Victory Points for having the majority of any type of palace piece. But that's not the only way to score points: the longer your City Wall, the more protected your Alhambra will be, earning you additional points.
