Expansion for Alhambra
81 0

This expansion contains four different modules, which can be combined individually or all together with the basic game:

  • The Favor of the Vizier allows players to take a turn out of order.
  • The Exchange Office contains cards which allow buildings to be purchased using 2 different currencies.
  • The Bonus Cards include secret tiles which can be revealed to count as an additional building of the type shown.
  • The Building Huts has extra tiles which can be built as an additional action choice (in addition to buying and placing buildings, rearranging one’s Alhambra, and taking money) and which count as 0-3 of a given building type, depending on adjacent tiles.

“Exhange and the favour are a must have”

This expansion offers a few interesting additions to the main game.

To start with the Currency exhange adds that your hand doesn’t get saturated with currency cards of any one type the only downside is that in a +3 game there really are too few of them to go around. But overal this part of the expansion has become a must have even in a standard game. 9/10

The bonus huts are also a nice addition because it gives the more clever puzzelers the chance to steal points away in a grand fashion another plus point is the ability to provide free wall points. 7/10

The building bonuscards is something that gets interesting when you play with +3 players because then it creates an atmosphere of competition. 6/10

Last but not least the sequence jumping vizier is a must play in a 3+ game. IMHO in a 2 player game it gets pretty obvious what you’re about to do, but with more players you have to keep an eye on every player.
6/10
In general 2 of the 4 expansions could really be used in any game the other two don’t satisfy that much but can give an edge to any game.

“An improvement to Alhambra”

The Vizier’s Favour, by allowing you to invest in the ability to jump out of turn order at some point in the future, significantly reduces the amount of randomness in the game, especially with more players. The other included expansions are okay (the bonus huts, the currency exhange), but the title expansion is really the good one.
