2023 Tournament Format  Heats Most Wins - Timing

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 Semifinals . Advancement will be based on the HMW-Timing standard Tiebreakers. Check the Event kiosk for a list of Alternates if you wish to advance. Semifinal winners will advance to the Final.  Come build your ALHAMBRA!!!
