Azul is an abstract tile placement game where you are embellishing the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora in Portugal.
HOW TO PLAY
Players take turns drafting coloured tiles from factories before placing them in holding bays on your own personal player board. Once all tiles have been drafted you can place one tile from each full bay onto your wall, scoring it as well as any adjacent tiles. The game ends when a player completes a horizontal row of wall tiles.
