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.
