Puzzled! – At the Alhambra

A new strategy game – based on the Towers of the Alhambra

Those who know me well, will recognise that I have an insatiable obsession with Spain, and with Granada in particular.

It was my love affair with the city as a student that convinced me finally to return to Spain, not as a tourist, but on a more permanent basis.  Ten years later, and despite the economic doldrums, Spain is still my home.

Granada is even the setting for my current WIP – The Nasrid Charm, so my fixation with the place, its historical and cultural significance has been put to the test – most definitely.

I persistently sign up for more news on the Alhambra, receiving regular blogs and updates on all sorts of events, but my latest find is something a little more extraordinary.

As a self-confessed geek, I couldn’t resist a peek at  a recent offering – a strategy  game based on the Towers of the Alhambra, for fans of board games and strategy alike, or just Alhambra buffs.  Take up your position – North or South – and conquer the opposition.  Can you take control and win the Kingdom?

OK, so the video is in Spanish, but you’ll get the gist easily enough – after all – does not a picture paint a thousand words?

I’ll be picking up the game on my next visit – anyone up for a match?




Dreams can come true and mine was to live in Spain forever and ever ....  Well, after studying languages many years ago I became totally enamoured with all things Spanish, I finally made the big move for a more 'relaxed' lifestyle in 2003.  Since then, I have been teaching Spanish to Ex-pats and translating. Also, I trained as a Community Manager (Social Media) so that I have a genuine excuse to be on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for hours on end, but then I started to write. My first attempt was for NaNo 2012 with 'The Nasrid Charm' (a story set in Spain and the Afterlife.) Like most first drafts, this is in need of serious revision and has been placed on the backburner, while I pursue my mystery stories. I'll get back to it - one day :)
