How to Play Azul Guide

What is Azul about?

In Azul, you take on the role of artisans tasked with tiling the walls of a royal palace. The gameplay revolves around a simple yet engaging mechanic: drafting colored tiles from a central pool to place them on your player board. Each round, you strategically select tiles to  complete specific patterns or sequences, to score points.

Azul Game Mechanics

The game mechanics involve players choosing tiles from factory displays, and must think ahead about not only what they need but also what their opponents might need. The game ends after a set number of rounds, and additional points are scored for completed rows, columns, and sets of colors, adding a layer of strategic depth to the final placements.

Azul is fun due to its simplicity and strategic complexity. The easy to learn rules make the game accessible, but mastering it involves deep strategic thinking, foresight, and a bit of risk-taking. This balance makes Azul appealing to both casual players and serious players looking for a challenge.

Who will find Azul fun?

Azul  appeals to gamers who enjoy puzzle-like challenges and games where planning and strategy are rewarded. The game’s aesthetic appeal, with its beautiful, tactile tiles is a bonus.
