Players compete to construct their own biggest and best Alhambra (palace) by buying a combination of six different building styles while carefully managing their money and attempting to maintain dominance in building styles. It is a wonderful mix of luck and strategy with a surprise element of when the scoring will take place.

5-player games will be the norm with 4-player games used as necessary depending on number of entrants and copies of the game on hand. 25 players will advance to the elimination rounds. Check the Event kiosk for a list of Alternates if you wish to advance. Come build your ALHAMBRA!!!

ADVANCEMENT TIEBREAKERS: In Multiple Entry, Single Elimination events for multi-player games, players possibly qualify for Single Elimination play in the second round by winning any of up to four preliminary Heats. Occasionally, players may advance without winning a heat. Players can enter one or more Heats without limit. All events for most multi-player games consist of three rounds; an opening Round consisting of two to four Preliminary Heats, a semifinal and a Final. The semifinal round will advance a predesignated optimum number of players to fill the second round; i.e., 25 players for a 5-player game, 16 players for a 4-player game, etc. but in all cases will advance no more than half of all players which participated in the Preliminaries. If insufficient players advance to warrant a semifinal round, the scheduled semifinal will instead become the Final.
