Quick Overview

Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. 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. As a tile-lying artisan, players are challenged to embellish 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 have wasted no supplies in the process.

Winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres award and designed by world famous, award winning game author Michael Kiesling.
