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

The City Walls. (4) An expansion that lets you build extrawalls around your Alhambra.
The Thieves. (10) An expansion that makes sure you get a lot of good money to buy with.
The Change. (9) An expansion that gives you coins back when paying too much.
The Street Trader. (10) An expansion there you put out meeples and earn lots of points.

This is a mustbuy.

When playing with new gamers I include the Thieves and the Change. With experienced players it's a must to include the Street Traders.

This is a nice expansion. The thieves get you extra money, the additional walls get you extra points, the change coins are really neat, but we always forget to grab them from the bag.

The biggest 3rd dimension to the game are the merchants. This doesn't throw a curve ball into your game. This throws a bowling ball into your game. Now you need to concentrate on your merchants more than the type of buildings you're building. Holy crap, the anxiety!! It's like you want to do 10 things, but you can only do 1!

Really nice expansion.

Change: Best module of this box. Now you even might want to over pay just to get change back. Will probably never play again without this module (just like the diamonds from exp 2)
Thieves: Ok, didn't work very well with 2 players, but I think they will become very useful when playing with 4 or 5.
Walls: Just for fun they might be OK once in a while.
Residents: Another way to make things more complicated.

All four mini-expansions add different dimensions to the base game, making this expansion an enjoyable experience and worthwhile purchase.

The City Walls give more options towards achieving a longer continuous wall.

The Thieves allow for interruption of the usual turn order to get that money card you need desperately for that particular building tile.

The Change give players change when overpaying for buildings. This increases the chances of paying exact for the next building bought with that same currency.

Finally, The Street Traders give an alternative way of scoring and that adds to the variety of ways in scoring points and winning the game.

"Flying Merchants" is a fantastic idea that you´ll buy also different colours

"Walls" also very good (especially with our house rule: if you can manage it to get a closed wall then you´ll get the double score).

"Change" is OK.

"Thiefs" are not very useful

Worth it for the coins, which are a nice addition to the base game, I wouldn't play without them at this point. The traders circle is maybe my favorite of all the expansions. The thief cards are nice for grabbing those '9's when you flip them over. The walls really increase your points due to being able to complete an entire wall almost every time. I like all the expansions in this set.

I may have been a little harsh on this Expansion initially. I've come to appreciate what it can do for the series. But I still feel it offers more when played with other expansions.

Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself, and never refuse to take a drink-under any circumstances.

The best of the expansions. All 4 modules add to the game. Thieves, change, walls, but most of all the street trader. They all are used in the games we play.

My favorite Expansion for Alhambra. The Addon-Box for Interaction with a lot of wooden pieces. Watchout for the green Dirham, in 1st Alhambra Edition there ist an orange Dirham! The Traders and the walls are the best modules.
