Palaces R Us …
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
5-player games will be the norm with 4-players 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 list of Alternates if you wish to advance. Come
build your ALHAMBRA!!!
ADVANCEMENT TIE-BREAKERS: 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
wihout 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.
