The original Azul came out in 2017 and it was such a powerhouse that it won the 2018 Spiel des Jahres award and has spawned countless sequel stand-alone games. People love all the entries and often look to it as one of the best abstract strategy board games in existence.

The original Azul is about helping the king decorate with Portuguese tiles. Azul is a well crafted set collection and pattern building game. You draft sets of tiles against other players in order to create strategic clusters that are going to get you big points. You need to strategically fill rows with groupings of colors in order to move them into your final square grid in order to score. For 2 – 4 players, games run about 45 minutes.
