Description Edit | History

The Gardens of Alhambra is an abstract influence game from Dirk Henn where each player is represented by plants of a particular color. Using tiles with all four colors on them, the players place them onto the board in fixed locations. In doing so, they try to surround victory point markers and capture them. Of course, since each tile has all of the player's colors represented, every tile placement must be carefully thought-out so that you maximize your points while minimizing them for your opponents. Ties disqualify players - and so the next highest color total will earn the points. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner.

6 The Gardens of Alhambra - Tiles
One thing I find frustrating about "The Gardens of Alhambra" is the need to flip over the Building Tiles once they have been surrounded & scored. Whilst I appreciate the need to do this to indicate that the Building Tile has been scored, the problem is that the flipping of the tiles upsets other tiles in play. For this reason, I scanned a complete set of the Building Tiles. These can be cut out & placed on the Building Tiles once they have been surrounded & scored. Designed to be printed on 2 single sided A4 pages. Would be best to either laminate the page or print on cardboard.
