This seems to a hard to find. Where do I get it? What is the average cost for this edition?

The original is better designed from a usability perspective. I wouldn't rule it out.

    With the scoring track running around the outside of the board it's more difficult to lift the cards you select out of the middle. With the original form factor you can slide cards and chits to you, without worrying about picking the edge with your fingernail. I'm a nail-biter, so having scoring markers on the edge of the board near me are a hazard, and it's a game you win by a few points so knocking into it and not knowing where to put it back can make a difference.

    The original can fit to the table you're using, scoring track in one corner, small centerboard in the middle with cards to whatever side fits them. I've played on a McDonalds table. The bigger board isn't a killer, but it doesn't add anything to the game, and makes the box bigger.

    Alhambra is one tight little euro. The original box lends itself to that concept better.

             S.

Then you'll have to be brave and order it from Europe if you want it.

Anyone know where to get a copy here in the US? I would trade with someone but hard to tell who had this version up for grabs.

I have a copy of the anniversary edition that's in plastic, if you're still looking for one. We received two copies of the same game for our wedding and neither had receipts or information to be able to return/exchange one.

Seems like a long shot but is there any chance you still have that extra copy of Alhambra?
