Alhambra

Next up for Aaron L, Aaron M. and Rob was Alhambra. Alhambra is the tile-laying/city building game from Queen Games. Alhambra plays best with three or four players. Early on all we saw was "yellow" money -- while the yellow buildings weren't all that appealing. Aaron L. built his Alhambra with very few walls. Rob and Aaron M. each had 10+ long walls in the final scoring round. Rob ended up winning.

Einfach Genial

Einfach Genial is a purely abstract game from master game designer Reiner Knizia. Aaron L., Aaron M. and I (Rob) decided to give this a go as the others started a five-player game of Puerto Rico. In Genial, the object is gain points in six different colors by playing plastic tiles on the board. Each tile is made up of two hexagons put together with one of the six colors on it. Points are gained by playing your tile next to tiles of the same color already on the board. The game is quite straight-forward and easy to pick up. The winner is the player who has the highest low score in one color (similar to Euphrat & Tigris). So it doesn't pay to ignore any color. Taking the balanced approach, Rob did not reach the "genius" level in any color. Rob won in a close contest of Aaron and Aaron.
