Alhambra Designers’ Edition on Kickstarter
April 30, 2018 - 6:59am
Queen Games has collaborated with nine celebrated game designers to create a new Limited Designers’ Edition of Alhambra that can only be purchased through their Kickstarter campaign going on right now. The Alhambra Designers’ Edition has all new art for the box cover, the game board, the tiles, and the cards. The new addition also includes a tile dispenser tower in matching artwork. There are nine expansions available with the Alhambra Designers’ Edition. Different pledge levels in the Kickstarter campaign offer supporters an increasing number of expansions with their base game. You may have heard of a few of the designers who have contributed to the Alhambra Designers’ Edition: Klaus-Jürgen Wrede (Carcassonne); Stefan Feld (The Castles of Burgundy); Emanuele Ornella (Oltre Mare); Michael Schacht (Zooloretto); Mike Elliott (Thunderstone); Rüdiger Dorn (Istanbul); Marco Ruskowski & Marcel Süßelbeck (Fresco); Dirk Henn (Shogun); Michael Rieneck (The Pillars of the Earth). The list of famous designers contributing expansions for the Alhambra Designers’ Edition is an embarrassment of riches. For those who already own Alhambra and are not interested in purchasing another base game, the Kickstarter campaign does include an option to just purchase the expansions created by these designers. For those who want an ultimate version, there is the Mega Box edition which includes all nine designer expansions with the new designer base game as well as all previously published expansions and bigger tiles. Like all Kickstarter campaigns, there are stretch goals. For the Designers’ Edition, the stretch goals appropriately include fan designed expansions. Fans can submit expansion ideas, up to three of which will be developed and produced as part of the Alhambra Designers' Edition. Ideas for the submission can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about the Alhambra Designers’ Edition and the specific expansions designed by each of the designers, see the Alhambra Designers’ Edition Kickstarter Campaign which runs until May 25, 2018 and is expected to deliver in March 2019.
