Just saw that Queen games is releasing Alhambra: Belgium and Alhambra Netherlands. Are there any things unique about these versions?

Did Queen games hire a former Parker Bros/MB/Hasbro executive?

Are we going to see Alhambra: The Cat Lover's Version next year.

We had the same thought at the same time. Is Alhambra that big of a brand that it can sustain so many games? The base game also had the Granada and New York versions, which were basically the same. Now the card game has multiple versions too?

It really doesn't matter to me, I would probably rather have one of the new versions than the original, but it seems like a weird business decision. I trust that they know what they're doing.

That's a completely different game using the same theme.

To be fair Granada actually has a twist on the game but I would never own a different version of the game as alhambra has the expansions.

Well the problem with Monopoly is that its crap. While Alhambra, is a better game.
Can't see the problem with giving more exposure to a good game.
