CUDO Plays Recommends

This week CUDO Plays recommends Azul.

Azul board and tiles

In this very colorful game, players take turns draftingtiles 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 supplies harm the player’s score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. Azul is a surprisingly strategic game with strong puzzle elements. Be careful or your opponents will leave you with all the wrong tiles!
