Didn't Alhambra have a pseudo third person for the 2-player 'variant'? If I remember, it was a very simplified automa that followed some (but not all) of the rules.


See comment below... I'd blame my memory, but I forget what it is...

Getting the kids ready for Juniors competition at WBC in the coming months, and so Preston has learned Alhambra. He finished second to me, beating his experienced sister, in his very first game. I'd say he grokked it

As far as I'm concerned the best 3 player game. With more than 3 players it gets too random and I don't like the imaginary Dirk at all.

Previous rank: 11

I enjoyed many plays of Alhambra, but after a while I don't really like it anymore. It just isn't exciting anymore. The expansions could solve that but I had the feeling that most of them didn't really improve the game. So my copy was traded away. 101 plays isn't so bad after all.

Alhambra

1 yr, 17 days

The last play was a solo variant that I didn't enjoy, if I go back to my last play against someone else, it would be 2 yrs, 2, months & 21 days. Played this at tabletop day and it was a hit. My favorite gateway game, always happy to teach this one and enjoy playing it. The reason for lack of plays is my wife soured on it for our 2p sessions and more of my playing in the last few years has been with gamers looking for more challenging games.

Popped into local thrift. Noticed a few more games in the stack than what they normally have, although most were snoozers (SceneIts, Cranium, Monopoly, etc etc etc ... yawn). Big red ribbon caught the corner of my eye.

$1.99. Complete and in really good shape!

Original Uberplay/Queen Games edition with that gorgeous red ribbon

Spiel des Jahres Series #21: 2003

BGG Comments: Straightforward game in which players are simultaneously trying to draft both money to buy tiles and the tiles that they will use to score points. The exact change mechanism, which gives players an extra action each time they pay exactly in the required currency, is a great rule and often the differentiator between winning and losing. There's something self-balancing here between grabbing too much money and overpaying for too many tiles that I find satisfying. The spatial puzzle of designing your palace puts this one above its card game predecessor.

My Rating: 6.4

Dave taught the game

Chris- 143 (win)
Conrad- 123
Dave- 122

It won the Spiel des Jahres- how could it be bad? It's not! A decent game of similar weight to Ticket to Ride or Zooloretto.

Alhambra is a set collection game with some shenanigans attached. There are tiles of different colors. Get the most of a color, get the most points for that color. There are three scoring rounds; each successive round allowing 2nd place, then 3rd place scoring. There are walls on the tiles that limit your placement opportunities.

Now there is an element of Alhambra that leads to unnecessary confusion. In the game, you play money cards to buy the tiles. The money comes in four colors, representing all the workers of the world who were hired to build the Alhambra. So you only play Byzantine workers in Byzantine Space Dollars, etc. However, the colors used to represent the money are also used on the tiles themselves. So whenever I've played, someone will try to buy a green tile with green money. Even though that tile is on the spot marked for blue money. It seems like an easy problem that would have been solved game development. There's many colors... use more!

Huge thanks to Keith for teaching Louise and I this one. Building a palace this time (much easier than spaceships)...an easy game to pick up...some frustrations towards the end of the game when all the blue cards disappeared and all we wanted to buy was a tile with no walls... Keith: "It's all crap and I hate you all.." ;-)
Keith won by a mile.

Players: Keith, Louise, Kym
