New Azul game announced
Plan B Games has announced the latest in its popular series of Azul board games. Last month, Plan B Games announced Azul: Queen’s Garden, the fourth installment in the popular series. Details on the new Azul are scarce, but players will continue to draw tiles and use them to build mosaics in hopes of scoring points. The description of the new board game Azul suggests that trees, plants and other garden ornaments will be used in the new installment.
Azul is a strategy game that involves drawing richly decorated tiles and using them to file a 5×5 square. Players score points for filling in rows and columns, and for all tiles in a completed row being the same color. Players lose points when they waste supplies by not using tiles to fill their board. Two variations of the game, Azul: Sintra stained glass and Azul: summer Flag, add extra wrinkles to the base gameplay.
The original Azul has won numerous board game awards, including the Spiel des Jahres, and is widely hailed as one of the best ‘bridge’ board games for bridging the gap between traditional, lightweight board games and more strategy games. complex. To date, more than two million copies of Azul and its sequels have been sold.
Azul’s description: Queen’s Garden reads: “Welcome to Sintra Palace! King Manuel I commissioned the best garden designers in Portugal to build the most extraordinary garden for his wife, Queen Mary of Aragon. “
“In Azul: Queen’s Garden, players are tasked with making a beautiful garden for the king’s lovely wife by arranging beautiful plants, trees and ornamental elements.”
Using an innovative drawing mechanism, the signature of the Azul series, players must carefully select colorful tiles to decorate their garden. Only the most incredible garden designers will flourish and earn the blessing of the Queen.”
Azul: Queen’s Garden will officially launch in Spiel later this year. The game will hit retail stores and hobby stories at the end of 2021. Keep in mind that due to the global shipping crisis, release dates may vary by country.
