Board Games at Odum: Azul

A guide to help you navigate Odum Library's board game collection and the world of gaming.



Azul invites you, a tile laying artist, to embellish the walls of the royal palace of Evora. Introduced by the Moors, "azulejos" (originally white and blue ceremic tiles) were fully embraced by the Portuguese, when their king Manuel I, on a visit to the Alhambra palace in Southern Spain, was mesmerized 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. 

1. Pick the tiles of the same color from any factory display or from the general offer.

2. Align all tiles on one of your pattern lines.

3. Tile a wall in the wonderful Evora palace and score points!
