In this game you build your alhambra. On your turn you have three different choices. You only get to do one, usually. You can either take currency, which is in four different colors. Or you can buy a piece of your palace. There are pieces on a board with the color of currency you need to buy it beside it. If you can buy the piece with the correct amount of currency you can have another turn. After you are done with all your actions you place the piece in your alhambra. You have to line up your pieces but the possibilites are wide and varied. At the end of each round (there are three) you get points for who has the most of each kind of piece (garden, manor, pavilion and others).
This game is different every time you play it as the pieces you get each time will be different and of course the way you build your alhambra.
This is a good game and I recommend it.
