Gardens of Alhambra is a light weight abstract board game loosely based on the same theme as Alhambra. This time, you are challenged to maximize the influence your flowers have over the residents of Alhambra.

Bits and Setup

The game board is divided into octagons and diamonds. The game provides squares numbed from 1-5 to be placed onto the squares numbers side up while the octagons are mixed and placed flower side down. Each player has a wooden tower matching their preferred flower color, this is used to track scoring on a track outlining the main board.


On their turn, a player draws an octagon and must place it next to an existing octagon on the board. You can't place the initial octagon next to to the outside row. Each octagon is divded into 4 sections with a number of flowers equally in each color.

If a placed octagon completely surrounds one of the squares, scoring is done. The player with the highest number of flowers around a building scores (# on building X # of different flower types around the building). If two or more players tie for the number of flowers, the points go to the color in 2nd place.


The game ends when the final octagon is placed. Highest score wins.

2-4 players, ages 8 to adult
