ALHAMBRA OVERVIEW


The best master builders in the whole of Europe and Arabia want to demonstrate their skill. Employ the most suitable teams of builders and make sure that you always have enough of the right currency. Because no matter whether they are stonemasons from the north or horticulturalists from the south, they all want a proper wage and insist on their “native” currency. With their help towers can be constructed, gardens laid out, pavilions and arcades erected and seraglios and chambers built. Compete against your opponents to build the Alhambra.

Players who have the most building tiles of each kind in their Alhambra at the right time – in the scoring rounds – are awarded points, the exact amount depending on the type of building. Players also receive points for the longest part of wall they have built around their Alhambra. More points are awarded in each scoring round. The winner is the player who has been awarded the most points by the end of the game.
