Alhambra: The best master builders in the whole of Europe and Arabia demonstrate their skill. Make sure you always have enough of the right currency and compete against your components to build the Alhambra.

Granada, 1278. At the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, one of the most exciting and interesting projects of the Spanish Middle Ages begins: the construction of the Alhambra. The best master builders in the whole of Europe and Arabia want to demonstrate their skill. In Alhambra, you're one of those builders. You're goal is to acquirie buildings to build out your Alhambra complex from lovely central fountain.

On your turn, you may take money from the open money market, purchase a building from the building market, or engage in construction or re-construction projects with previously acquired buildings that have been placed in your reserve. Alhambra rewards efficiency: when you purchase a building from the market for the exact amount of money, you get to take another turn.

There are two scoring rounds during the game and one at the end. Players with the most buildings in each of the six building types score points. Points are also awarded for each player's longest wall around their complex. The game ends when the building market can no longer be replenished from the building tile supply. After the final scoring, the player with the highest score wins.
