Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra welcomes players back to the world of Azul. Players are challenged to adorn the windows of the Chapel of the Palace of Sintra in Portugal. After furnishing the Palace of Evora, King Manuel I now seeks to commission the World’s greatest stained glass artisans to adorn the Chapel windows of the Palace of Sintra.
As a glass artisan, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to demonstrate your exquisite abilities for King and country. Will you be the best at creating the most beautiful stained glass in the entire country? Welcome back to the world of Azul!
Created by the world famous game designer, Michael Kiesling, Azul: stained glass of Sintra challenges players to compete by carefully selecting glass panes to complete their windows while being careful not to damage or waste supplies in the process. The window panels are double sided providing players with a dynamic player board that affords nearly infinite variability!
Designed by the world famous, award winning game author Michael Kiesling, Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of Moorish art in a contemporary board game.
Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora. By carefully drafting the correct quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximise the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores!) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process.
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 mesmerised 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.
Azul was the worthy winner of the very prestigious 2018 'Spiel Des Jahres' award!
The ninjas have taken over the ancestral lands belonging to the Pandas. This has caused the cities to decay as the roadways, once bustling with trade, have been infested with ninja bandits. Now, the four Panda Clans have vowed to reclaim what is theirs. Using their mightiest heroes, they seek to remove the ninja menace and rebuild their once-magnificent cities. But only one Clan will do the most to return things to how they used to be. That Clan will be awarded with a seat at the Emperor’s right hand.
In Way of the Panda, players take on the role of the leader of one of the four Panda Clans. Using their Monk, Warrior, and Governor, they will move around the map board, defeating ninjas as they go. When the roadways around a city have been cleared of threats, players can start to construct great buildings. Defeating ninjas and erecting buildings will bring prestige to their Clan. The player with the most prestige at the end of the game takes their place at the right hand of the Emperor.
