Alhambra is a tile based game where you have to build the best garden. You buy tiles of different colours and values for different currencies. You get points for the value of tiles and the length of the wall that you build around your garden. We like this game because there are three scoring rounds, two during the game and one at the end of the game. This means that you have an idea how well you are doing at most points of the game. It is a great game for 2-4 players.
“Granada, 1278. At the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, one of the most exciting and interesting project of the Spanish Middle Ages begins: the construction of the ALHAMBRA.
The best master builders in the whole of Europe and Arabia want to demonstrate their skill. Employ the most suitable teams of builders and make sure that you always have enough of the right currency. Because no matter whether they are stonemasons from the north or horticulturalists from the south, they all want a proper wage and insist on their "native" currency. With their help towers can be constructed, gardens laid out, pavilions and arcades erected and seraglios and chambers built.”
