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.

'The Street Traders' is probably the most unique of the expansion modules contained here, but 'The Change' is handy too so you might no longer have to overpay on the Building Market. 'The City Walls' is another way to bolster your wall score at the end of the game, but I just don't know if I'd want to use 'The Thieves', just another way for people to expedite and grab more money on another player's turn, could get fiddly with the 'Vizier's Favor' expansion in there too. Anyway, mostly solid choices here.

When it have a more time, I will put the comment in English. Excuses the inconvenience.

#----0----#

Estamos frente a la tercera expansión, en la línea de las anteriores: 4 módulos independientes que podemos poner o quitar a nuestro antojo y mezclarlo con las demás ampliaciones.

El mejor módulo y con el que siempre queremos jugar es con las monedas, algo de cambio siempre viene bien y ciertamente añade más tensión al juego.

De las otras, el ladrón (que da nombre a la expansión), es divertido y es un fastidio cuando te lo juegan, cuando lo juegas tu no . El módulo de los mercados, esta bien, es para añadir a los seguidores a Alhambra y los muros, esta muy pero que muy bien, ahora no hace falta que compres esa baldosa, si puedes hacerte con una carta de muro... le pones el palito y listo para hacer la muralla más larga jamás vista (he llegado a rodear TODA mi Alhambra en el último turno... no veas que cantidad de puntos).

Para los que nos gusta y entusiasma el Alhambra, es sin duda una delicia.

#9 The City Walls The right wall at the right time in the right place. Bingo! Everyone seems to like this expansion - mmmh does that mean that everybody is struggling with walls?
#10 The Thieves
#11 The Change works very good combined with "The Vizier"
#12 The Street Trader Initally I thought this would have huge impact and the player doing this well would be the clear winner of the game. However it doesn't pan out that way: in the end it hardly makes a big difference on the final score. But a fun expansion and that's why I like it

The third expansion is Alhambra: The Thief's Turn and meant to be center around thieves and stealing. The is a very poor expansion and only one piece is actually centered around the theme. I rarely play with any of these expansions.


The individual pieces of this expansion are -


Thieves - The only piece that has anything to do with the theme. These cards allow the player to take a face-up currency card. I do not play with this expansion.


City Walls - Each of these cards show a city wall in a particular edge of a tile. The player can then use the card to add a wooden city wall piece to a tile in his Alhambra along that edge. This works to continue the wall of the Alhambra. This is fun concept, but I do not like the expansion. I do not play with this expansion.


Change - This expansion is simply a bag with currency coins of each color. If a player overpays by more then two when buying a tile, he can draw one random currency coin. Each coin is worth one of that color. This sound like a good expansion, but it is not. Getting change breaks one the games most basic rules. I do not play with this expansion.


Street Traders - An interesting idea for a new scoring mechanic that just totally falls apart because it does not differentiate the players enough. Players get one meeple in each color of tile. When you build a tile of that color you can put that same color meeple on the tile. Players earn point based on how many of their meeples they place. The problem is that it is just too easy to put your meeples down and score, so everyone ends up with the same score for meeples. I rarely play with this expansion.

So far I've only played with "The Thieves" expansion. It is kind of convenient to use, especially if used in conjunction with the vizier from expansion #1. It seems fairly important to wait for just the right time to use the card, the later the better, I guess.
