Alpujarras is a 1-4 player strategy game that takes around an hour to play and offers players dynamic turn based play with set collection.
Players are fruit farmers who take their fruit to the village to fulfill orders and sell their fruit at market. When it's time to harvest, though, players earn fruit for the locations where they have majority presence, so it's best not to exhaust all your farmers at market.
A clever game that is entirely replayable and scalable, Alpujarras will have everyone enjoying the agricultural revolution! Watch it here: youtu.be/AUBL4aflzBk
