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 in this new entry to the Century
via the Annual Membership vote route. It is a wonderful mix of
luck and strategy with a surprise element of when the scoring
will take place.
Five-player games will be the norm with four-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 semi-final and a Final. The sem-ifinal round will advance
a predesignated optimum number of players to fill the second
round; i.e., 25 players for a five-player game, 16 players for
a four-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 semi-final round,
the scheduled semi-final will instead become the Final.
Only (HWO) - Only the winners from each heat advance to Round
2-no alterates advance. EVERY winner of a game advances. There
is no limit on the number of winners that can be accommodated.
Anyone who comes in second may not advance, even if the person
who finished first in that game has won a previous heat or chooses
not to advance to the Final.
