Glenn’s Review

Glenn reviewed the game Alhambra. You are working to build a lush city in 1278. You are looking to hire the best artisans in the world but you need to pay them in their native currency. Towers, pavilions, gardens and more can only be built if you have the right amount of the correct currency. Placement is also important. You’ll need proper walls to protect your paradise.
