To those that have all the expansions - does having this one really get Alhambra on the table more often or are they starting to stretch what they can do here with this game?

I think this is a really good expansion, but I don't think Alhambra is not a game which needs 20 mini expansions. The base game has interesting decisions but actually has a lot of luck in it (which is fine by me). The more expansions you introduce, the more rules there are, the longer the game takes and the more complicated it is. All of these things move the game out of the gateway game market and towards gamers, who are likely to be put off by the luck.

That said, if you don't have any expansion and are looking to buy 1, this one is as good as any and better than most.
