Azul was designed by the world famous, award winning game author Michael Kiesling. Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating 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 wasted no supplies in the process.

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.

Amazing game

Easy to pick up and play.. it's competitive and quite strategic. Very good game to play as two players - great opportunities to block and stuff your competitor. Would highly recommend. If Athena staff had not known the game when I asked I probably would not have bought it.. thanks Athena.

Fantastic Game - And Athena are SO SO HELPFUL !!!

Azul is a gorgeous tile placement game which lasts about 30 minutes. And the team at Athena are so friendly and helpful. The game arrived 24 hours after placing the order. We love Athena and hope to be back there soon. Thanks everyone.
