This is the second expansionbox with 4 small expansions for Alhambra.

The City Gates. (4) An expansion that lets you build gates over your walls.
The Diamonds. (10) An expansion with a 5th currency that goes everywhere.
The Characters. (10) An expansion where you buy characters that gives you different benefits.
The Camps. (9) An expansion of tiles that you build outside your Alhambra to get extrapoints.

This is a mustbuy.

When playing with new gamers I include the Diamonds and the Camps. With experienced players it's a must to include the Characters.

Gates are great. Diamonds are forever. Characters are excellent for players that know well the game. Probably the best expansion of all.

Very cool expansion. Really worth getting. It adds a few twists, that don't change the game, but rather enhance it even more.

I'd play with this expansion all the time, since it mixes with the base game very well.

I "own" this as part of the Big Box... I find the numerical ratings for expansions to be somewhat problematic. This one gets a 9 for "always want to play" only in relation to the base game, as this always gets included in every Alhambra session. Which of course doesn't indicate that I'll always want to play ALHAMBRA itself.

A bit expensive for what you get in the box, but it transforms the game. I will not play without the characters or the city gates, and we always leave the diamonds in the deck. The camps I could take or leave, but they do add some variety and can be added in if you want a longer game.

Don't buy the base game unless you are getting this expansion at the same time. I would no buy any of the other expansions.

I love the "diamonds" and the "characters". The City Gates are okay. The "camps" are okay as they tend to disrupt your hard wall building through the course of the game. This is probably my favorite expansion for Alhambra.

diamonds are extremely helpful to get what you want/characters cards have great power but if not utilized properly can be a detriment/the gates are subtle but useful but not make or break/ camps are great for points but can be a real hindrance when not properly placed/ Overall all four add greatly to the game without over shadowing what the greatness of the original game. Definitely recommended.

Arcadas bonitas, diamantes muito apelativos na hora da escolha, personagens bizarras e poderosas, além de soldados que tornam o “mapa” muito diferente. Nenhuma é bestial, mas todas são bem positivas. Vale a pena ter…

The diamond currency is now a permanent part of the currency deck. However, we have rarely used any of the other mini-expansions other than right after buying this.

I think I like this set of expansions better than the first set. The Characters don't work all that well, though, in the two-player game. Auctions tend to be that way.

I like all four of the expansions but none are great.

Here is a quick summary of my thoughts on each expansion:

City Gates: Cards are added to the deck that let you build a double wall then put a gate on it so that the just placed tile can still be reached by walking to the start tile.

Diamonds: Adds 11 diamond cards which can be used as any currency you wish, but only by itself (not in combination with other cards).

Camps: Allows you to score points for long lines of consecutive buildings.

Characters: Adds 10 cards, each with a person who gives a special power to the player who gains that person.

Adds a little to the game, diamonds moreso than the gates. Diamanten should perhaps be used as true wild cards but maybe only for exact change transactions. Characters had sufficient impact that some thought will need to be given during the bidding rounds. Tore der Stadt did not come into play at all, need to review the rules for this addition.

The character cards are a really, really fun addition to the basic game. The camps I can do without, mostly because the extra eight tiles make the game run a tad too long. The diamonds and city gates work well with the character cards to turn the basic game into something a little special. Very enjoyable expansion and hard to top.

Really enjoyed using the Diamonds Currency, the camps, and the city gates from this expansion. Definitely changed the play for me since I focused on getting points from the camps and had hardly any points from scoring the wall.

Diamonds - Very Good
City Gates - OK, we never use them
Character Cards - Good
Camps - Very Good (with some house rules - ie though a camp wall must touch the outside wall of the Alhambra when played, we do allow that an open side of that camp can then match and open side of Alhambra, for 2 players we also remove camps if unbought after 3 rounds)

The diamonds are probably my favorite. The camps really amplify the scoring and if one player draws them out it can really tip the scales.

Does what all good expansions should do: add a neat little touch to an already good game. City Gates are simple yet very welcome; Characters are really fun and add a lot of surprises to the game; Diamonds are OK and make the game a little easier, and Camps add a layer of strategy for scoring.

Military encampment - buildings, which are built on the other side of a wall and which give points for rows and/or columns of buildings. Not a necessary expansion. Players should know how to use them well.
Diamonds - a universal currency, which can be used to pay for anything. Interesting expansion, which allows to some extent to plan for situations when you don't have a certain currency. In our game these cards are not sorted out of the money pile at the end of the game. They are always used.
Characters - ?
City gates - it allows a hole in the wall. Not a necessary expansion. Usually many city gates are available and not a lot of players use them. Unless they completely surround their city with walls.

Kariniai įtvirtinimai - pastatai statomi kitoje sienos pusėje ir duodantys taškų už pastatų eiles ir/ar stulpelius. Nebūtinas papildymas. Reikia mokėti gerai juos panaudoti.
Deimantai - universali valiuta, kuria galima atsiskaityti už bet ką. Įdomus papildymas, leidžiantis bent šiek tiek apsidrausti nuo tam tikros valiutos neturėjimo. Mūsų žaidime jis net nebūna atskiriamas iš visų pinigų krūvos. Žaidžiame visada su juo.
Veikėjai - ?
Miesto vartai - leidžia padaryti skylę sienoje. Nebūtinas papildymas. Dažniausiai miesto vartų būna daug ir nelabai kas juos naudoja. Nebent mirtinai užsidaro savo miestą.
