An elegant little expansion. It's an auto include whenever we play.

*The 10 rating is for the expansion since I always use it. Overall it has the same rating of Alhambra.

A recent purchase from the BGG store. I can't see myself ever playing the game without these six tiles.

One of the better expansions for this game that we love. A small and simple - but great addition to Alhambra.

This adds just enough extra tiles (in conjuction with another expansion such as camps) to make the four player dynamic enough to create back and forth scoring. I think I found the sweet spot with the addition of this one.

Mini expansion that contains just 6 new tiles (one for each color), but provides a cool added on change. The tiles are powerful in that they can be rotated in any direction to how you see fit. When these tiles come out it makes everybody try to grab them as they can be extremely helpful.

Great tiles since they can be placed in any orientation. We play with them every time.

The only problem is these tiles have a different finish on the fronts so it is possible to feel them out in the draw bag.

Inexpensive promo set of six buildings that offer additional points.

ESSENTIAL to all Alhambra collections.

This expansion is okay. The buildings are viewed from on high meaning they can be placed in any direction in your Alhambra.

I typically don't like expansions that bail you out of a tough situation, but this one should be OK.

In terms of 2 player games it helps you more with getting out of wall jams since you can turn the walls any way to help create "openings in your Alhambra.

But since they cost higher than the other buildings money to buy them burns out faster in between rounds just slightly more quickly.

Also increases the numbers of the high point cards to 12 in a 2 player or 3 player game. Which means you can have 3 way ties for first.

Thinking about getting a 2nd set to create that tiebreaker amongst 3 people.

I have bought a 2nd set of these as newer players like these buildings in play as it allows for more grand Alhambras.

Tiny little expansion that gives you a tile of each building type that can be rotated to fit how you would like upon acquiring it. Nothing earth shattering here, but I have added it into my usual mix.

Yes I own 2 copies of this. It enables newer players when placing tiles. And with all the magical buildings gives it a more of a Dalaran effect.

A good mini-expansion. Easy to implement; just dump 'em in the bag. They do have a slightly different finish on them, so it is possible to tell the difference if you fish around in the bag long enough. Another negative is that this brings the number of tiles up to an even number for each colour which seems to result in more ties when figuring out majorities. Still worth the price in my opinion.
