Dirk Henn


The Gardens of Alhambra is an abstract influence game from Dirk Henn where each player is represented by plants of a particular color. Using tiles with all four colors on them, the players place them onto the board in fixed locations. In doing so, they try to surround victory point markers and capture them. Of course, since each tile has all of the player’s colors represented, every tile placement must be carefully thought-out so that you maximize your points while minimizing them for your opponents. Ties disqualify players – and so the next highest color total will earn the points. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner.
