Alhambra - English Edition   (View Game)

Classic. Great tile placement and card management game. The scoring system is unique and allows points for 2nd and 3rd. The only confusing thing is having colors for the money and the building type. Simple game play allows for easy integration of new players.

Great tile placing game, light yet strategic enough that it's worth having.

I often play games with my parents or my young children, which requires games that are not too confrontational but still allows some interaction. Alhambra fits the bill for this very well, in that it is mostly about your own efficiency at building and managing your money, but it also has subtle ways of messing with your opponent (through your choice of tiles). It is a great family game that I believe can be enjoyed by almost anyone.

A great euro-game. Similar to Carcassonne in that you're building a city, only everyone gets to build their own. There's money management, tile placement, and enough table-talk to keep you well occupied into the night.

This is a very nice tile-laying game that can be played by anywhere from 2-6 players. I particularly like the mechanic of getting an extra turn when you pay exact cash for a tile, since it adds both unpredictability and an incentive to deviate from the obvious choices of actions.

Once the game arrived my 7yr old daughter and I couldn't wait for the rest of the family to play it. Since she's a BIG Settlers of Catan fan I thought this was a perfect match. Easy game play and attractive tiles made the game fun and enjoyable immediately. A great game for 3 or more players.

Alhambra is a great game for 2-4 players, and we always forget how much fun it is until we bring it out. It is compact, easy to teach and fun to play. Always a win!

Alhambra finds an excellent balance between keeping you involved, making you make strategic decisions, and still remaining fairly simple the whole time. If I've got a group of people who I'm afraid won't get into the more serious and heavy style games, this is my go-to game. Quick to explain, and fun to play, Alhambra is a much-played game at my house.

Just because a game says it will support up to 6 players doesn't mean that it will support them well. Stick with 5 or fewer. Nice gave of set collection mixed with tile laying. But unlike something like Carcassonne, each player gets to build their own little kingdom, so you can do it however you like without anyone messing you up. This can be great for people who prefer less confrontational games. In fact there is virtually nothing that is overtly offensive. If you ever grow tired of the base game and want more, there are loads of expansions to choose from.

Build your own Spanish castle/fortress – an Alhambra – with up to 6 players. You compete for money to buy different rooms, gardens, pavilions and fountains to expand your castle. The player with the highest scoring castle at the end of the game is the winner. This game is easy to learn, and doesn’t take too long to play (about 45 minutes). The game pieces are colorful and high quality.

Alhambra is a strategic game of buiding an alhambra(city, town). You purchase tiles to build your alhambra, but be careful not to buy tiles with too many walls, or your doomed to wall yourself in. This is a game that you have to watch your moves as well as your fellow players because you gain points by having the most gardens, towers etc. at the end of the three rounds. Can't wait to play again.

Why did I wait so long to play this? It's easy to learn; No complicated rules and no little rules you have to look up all the time. There's only a small amount of luck and a lot of strategy. I like how the turns move pretty quickly so there's no lag time between moves. I might grow to like this as much as I like Ticket to Ride.
