Whether its a quick game between rounds or an all day main event, the Goonhammer team can often be found pushing chits, cubes, and cards around a board game. Resting the Glazier adds another strategic dimension that elongates the round and can really change the outcome.

Instead of taking glass on your turn, you can pass and reset your glazier fully to the left of your player board, sometimes you’ll do this out of necessity and other times it will be more of a stall tactic. 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 mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Moorish decorative tiles. Additionally, because a different color bonus is offered each round, players may want to hold off on completing a particular column if they stand to earn a larger bonus in a future round. Created by Michael Kiesling, Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra challenges players to carefully select glass panes to complete their windows while being careful not to damage or waste supplies in the process. In Azul, if you take extra tiles that you cannot fit on your board, they break and go to waste which will lead to negative points each time you take them.The information provided here is as complete and accurate as possible; however, product images, colours and/or specifications (inc. As a glass artisan, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to demonstrate your exquisite abilities for King and country. I would be interested to see what people who came across Stained Glass of Sintra before Azul thought after they had played. We are trying to complete windows in Sintra, so we’ve moved from Evora to Sintra, but we have stayed in Portugal. If you decide that it’s in your best interest to rest your Glazier and move it back to the left most Strip, then that will be your turn.

If a player does not wish to draft tiles, she may instead move her glazier back to the leftmost column. When a game wins the prestigious Spiel des Jahres award, it is common practice for the publisher to produce a series of expansions to both capitalise on the success of the base game whilst maintaining the public’s interest in the game. There were many times that I would deliberately not complete a Strip because the majority of the color on the Strip was the bonus for the next round. While crafting and staining a chapel's windows could take weeks, a game of Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra should only take 30 - 45 minutes and was designed for glaziers 8 and older. If a section of the design is completed, it is scored and then turned over to reveal a different combination of colours.Once all the Pane Pieces have been taken from the Factories and the centre of the table, then the round is complete and the Pane Piece from the round track for that round is placed in the Glass Tower. I do really enjoy Sintra though, and will save a space for it on my shelves right next to its predecessor. If you haven’t played Azul I’d try that first, it will make learning the rules for Stained Glass of Sintra much easier. So when you take glass from a factory or from the center, you take all of that specific color from that specific spot.

In the coming round, she will take her turn first, but this extra tile moves her down a space on the minus-points track. It is a popular tourist destination as it contains some picturesque palaces and castles which contain the colourful artwork of the Moors.

Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from points. Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra builds on the Spiel-des-Jahres-winning formula of the original, using the same basic concept but offering new strategic options. This is advantageous when there is nothing for you to draft (or too much of the wrong color) available to you based on the Glazier placement, to set yourself up better for the next round, or to make you opponent draft something they may not want (we’ll talk about strategy later).
