As A Tile Laying Artist, Azul Invites You To Embellish The Walls Of The Royal Palace Of Evora.
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 overwhelmed 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.
When I showed the gameplay to my husband on this one he wasn’t interested. It looks way more complex then it is. It’s actually hugely relaxing, even when playing strategically, to play with all player counts. It doesn’t even matter if you lose, it’s that fun to play! We all (8-adult) love this game and it’s pulled down a lot from the shelf. Easy to teach and beautifully tactile, this is a great game for all shelves.
