"A good mix of the other games we have played to far. I like it better than Carcassonne. You are each building your own world rather than one big world. I also like it better than Isle of Skye, because the scoring is less complicated."

"Alhambra combines a lot of the common mechanics of European-style board games… card drafting, tile placement, and collecting resources. All are done in the most straightforward way possible, making this a great introduction to the genre. It has just enough interactivity to make other players’ turns interesting. The art if simple, but attractive, and the sense of steady progress is satisfying."
