Description Edit | History

New game from KOSMOS, for the end of 2009.

The game is about building castles and villas. The bigger the better. The bigger your building is, the more people who can live inside and the more valuable they get. But watch out - the more you build, the more space you need - so it can be possible that your small building will be 'eaten' by an opponent's big castle or villa. Your landlords will lose their house and furniture except if they are sold for enough, at the right moment, to get some hidden silver instead. The winner will be the player with the biggest buildings and the most money.

(Found on KOSMOS-Homepage - free translation from German)

This game seems to be the game that Altura should have become.

5 Alcazar rules rewrite and player aid
This is my rewrite of the rules, prompted by the fact that i found the original rulebook's organization scheme (section D.1, D.2, etc.) confusing. My rewrite is based entirely on fellonmyhead's translation, so all kudos to him for making it possible for us English speakers to play the game. A player aid summarizing the different actions you can take on your turn is on p. 4. I have an unanswered question in the rules forum about whether playing a tower card to prepare for the building of the bridge pays income. In this file, I a have assumed that it does not.

54 Alcazar English Rules
An English translation from the German rules; reformatted and clarified in a couple of places from V5 after advice from Joe Huber. This has given me room to add in the credits without upsetting the document layout too much, so I've put them in (because really, they ought to be there). If you spot any errors, please GM the translator.
