This tile-laying game is the perfect choice for a cozy weekend afternoon. In our family, we like to brew up a batch of tea for grown-ups and hot chocolate for kids, then gather around the dining room table for this quick brain puzzle of a game.
The game has gorgeous art, and the colorful, chunky tiles look like candy. But the gameplay is where Azul shines: You’re a tile-laying artist, and you’re hired to build a mosaic fit to decorate the king’s palace. As you build your mosaic, you get points for linking tiles together, laying a whole row of tiles, and for using a variety of tile colors. A fun way to build your child’s strategic thinking skills while also giving your mind a workout!
When you’re playing with younger kids, you can choose to take a more laidback approach and be considerate when choosing tiles so that you don’t leave your kids high-and-dry—and vice versa. But when you’re playing with tweens, teens, and adults, the gloves can come off. Every artist for themselves.
Playing this game with my kids always wakes up my overtired parent brain, and that feels good.
Note: If you have more than 4 players to accommodate, we’ve paired up kids and adults on teams to play Azul, and that added a fun collaborative feel on top of the mind-bending vibe.
From the Manufacturer
Build a mosaic fit for a monarch!
Azul is a tile-placement game in which players compete for the highest score by claiming tiles and arranging them on the board to score points. Extra points are on offer for collecting sets of the same color of tile, or for creating particular patterns, while there are penalties for taking tiles that you’re unable to use. But every tile that you claim affects what your rivals can take next. You’ll have to make choices that help you without helping them too much!
WARNING: Choking Hazard – Contains small parts not suitable for children under 3 years.
