I gave this to A for her birthday, 2011.

I got Glen More for my own library to fill the same niche, but I think I almost prefer Alhambra due to the simplicity. I've since traded Glen More away. I do better with more luck thrown in, plus there is more spacial reasoning in placing the tiles. I love the spacial element, especially the walls.

This has been one of the best gateway games. A has played it with several people who went out and bought it for themselves.

I really like the tile collecting mechanic of this game. It's fun because the concept is not too complicated, but is very fast and competitive without leaving too much to chance.

It's a good one. However, I never really seem to know exactly what I'm doing, but doing fairly well anyway. No idea how that works, really.

Nice, slick little tile laying optimizaton game. Took me a while to get the hang of the negative space managment for tile placement, and the first round scoring seems almost trivial, but a very interesting game with some difficult decisions. I would definitely play it again.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

2 plays in:
Enjoyed my few plays of this game. Nice mechanic and limited choices each turn which keeps the game moving. Still there are meaningful decisions to make (thought I"m certainly no expert after just 2 plays!)

I put a decent amount of effort into being 2nd in multiple colors and that worked out well for me

I believe this is a game that Kathryn would enjoy and have it on my list of wants. Apparently it will play 2, but with a dummy player. Have not played with the official variant.

I really enjoyed this the one time I got to play it. In a weird way I thought it felt kind of like a cross between Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride with the card collecting mechanic and the tile placing mechanic. The game really lends itself to some opportunities to make some cool/tough decisions which I really liked.

Good game, the plot is in the strategy of purchasing valuable tiles for whatever price instead of invaluable tiles for prcise amount of money.
