Azul- A Photostory


Azul invites you, a tile laying artist, to embellish the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora.

Introduced by the Moors, "azulejos" (originally white and blue ceramic tiles) were fully embraced by the Portuguese, when their King Manuel I, on a visit to the Alhambra palace in Southern Spain, was mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Moorish decorative tiles. The king, awestruck by the interior beauty of the Alhambra, immediately ordered that his own palace in Portugal be decorated with similar wall tiles.

Simple and fun game yet potential for deep strategy.
I'm an experienced boardgamer with various tastes. And I tried this on my Game Night.

It was very simple to teach. The components and colors are pretty.

It was fun to play. Game play is simple and there is something very satisfying in arranging the tiles on your board.
Inside the simplicity shell, the game goes deep in strategy and tactics and statistics, almost chess like. Replayability of the game is how the randomized tiles show up and how you have to deal with the "Tiles" that you are dealt.

The game has two downsides for me.
1) While playing , talk on the table is minimum as you will be focusing on your board and 'sometimes on other people's boards. Each one will be doing their thing on their player board.
2) The end of the game is decided by players by making a single row of tiles out of a possible 5. So, a players can RUSH to finish the early when they take the score lead. This could be considered another strategy, however it is just ending the game short before the game reaches a stage where you can do satisfying combo scoring. This was fixed in the other versions of AZUL where they set the game length to 6 rounds; however, they also added unnecessary complexity to a nice smooth well-rounded game.

Highly rated and highly disappointing
I bought this game based on the hype but sold it after a few plays. The tiles look nice, although my player boards came very warped. But the game play is TOO simple and offers no meaningful choices that I felt I'd seen everything the game has to offer after 2 plays. I would caution anyone to play before buying. There are too many entry-level games that have much more depth of strategy and replay-ability. My suggestion, avoid Azul and get Sagrada, Splendor, or Ticket to Ride instead.

Lovely Game.
A pleasure to look at with great components. What you're doing is simple enough to teach quickly, but with enough decision space to remain interesting. Not one I see playing at game night a lot, but will hit the table with my family easily.
