Winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award.
In Azul, players take turns drafting beautiful chunky tiles from suppliers to their player board. Later in the round, players score points based on how they've placed their tiles to decorate the palace. Extra points are scored for specific patterns and completing sets; wasted tiles harm the player's score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. For 2 to 4 players, Azul can be played casually or cutthroat.
