Vlog Ep. 224: Mosaic Crafting with Azul

Today's episode of #BaduyPride is all about the abstract board game Azul, a 2-4 player game created by Michael Kiesling. This rather beautiful game is a great introduction to the tabletop hobby and one that I love more than Splendor, although Tobie still likes Splendor more. But both are great games with a similar feel. But how a game with such a simple core mechanic still offers a surprising depth of gameplay.

This game shines as a gateway game for new players whether they've never played an abstract board game before or have never played a board game period. And the fact that it's so easy to pick up the rules, we have witnessed a lot of first-time players manage to win their very first game. Regardless, it's always a lot of fun and this game features in a lot of our game nights regardless of the skill level of the assembled group. 

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
