The base game of Alhambra is a middling light strategy game, but the 20 (!) variants published so far can turn it into a brain-burner. You can add a single variant for flavor, or you can mix-and-match your favorites.

I think Power of the Sultan may be the best expansion yet. All four variants are easy to learn but have a signficant impact on gameplay. Also, moreso than the previous expansions, these four variants really complement each other well, adding lots of strategies and tactics to the game, with the "culture wheels" being the best.

It's funny that I'm calling this an improvement because it clearly takes Alhambra into "do-a-bunch-of-things, get-a-bunch-of-points" territory, which I usually don't like.

Amazing. This expansion is great! It's probably the best expansion for Alhambra, which may come surprsing considering it's expansion #5.

All elements of the expansion (variable score cards, tiles of Moorish art, power of sultan cards and income-producing caravans) make Alhambra much more gamer's game. What's the most important they add new dimensions to the game. Thus they increase the number of choices and possibilities. It can take a while to look at the game from new perspectives and adjust one's strategy/-ies.

If you found Alhambra just a bit repetitive and well... boring, try this expansion. It really spices up the game. And if it gets my wife to play with me, it deserves at least an 8. She really enjoys it and I've grown to like it.

There is an increase in the amount of point earning opportunities and purchasing power. The dynamics of the original game are changed considerably.

Alhambra is definitely a fun game by itself, but once I found out about the 5 expansions, I looked into what they added. This is the expansion I knew I had to have.

The best of the expansion sets I think. We loved the additions to the game. We will probably always play with the new money cards.
