Plan B Games has announced Azul, a new tile collection and placement game from designer and Speil des Jahres winner Michael Kiesling (Tikal, Torres). Based on the gorgeous Moorish tile artistry in Spain and Portugal, Azul has 2-4 players gathering colored resin tiles from central factory spaces, and laying them on their player board trying to complete rows.
Completed rows allow players to transfer a single tile to their growing mosaic for points. Any collected tiles which cannot be placed in rows go into the floor line, and represent tiles dropped on the floor, costing the player points. The game comes with 100 gorgeous resin tiles in 5 colors, and plays in a quick 30-40 minutes.
