We like to share the interview we did with Dirk Henn about the fascinating story behind the development of Alhambra.
When I saw the name Al Capone come up, part of me was wondering if that was where it transitioned to Al-hambra... That was not the case but the actual story is even more interesting!
Thanks for posting this
What a wonderful back story!
All the expansions are such a great testament to the genius of the core game. Dirk has provided a canvas for other modules to paint upon. But as history shows, great things often come through refinement.
I sure hope Dirk got to visit the Alhambra at some point, just like I did a few weeks back, taking pictures with my wife posing with the tiles we took with us. The place is truly marvelous and. While I was there an idea for an expansion struck me theme-wise that could really work, and not soon after that, the kickstarter shows up. Might have to look into those user-suggested expanions ;-)
