Azul is a tile-placement, abstract board game and this version is the first in the award-winning Azul series.
Designed by the world famous, Michael Kiesling and illustrated by acclaimed artist, Chris Quilliams, Azul invites players to Portugal where as a master artisan, the aim is to create a mosiac fit for a monarch!
Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora. By carefully drafting the correct quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process.
Quick to learn for players young and old alike, Azul is a challenge to master. Every game is different thanks to an ever-changing array of tiles that appear in each round to be claimed, ensuring that you'll keep coming back time and time again to chase that big score.
