Congratulations to Azul, winner of the 2018 Spiel des Jahres. Azul is a drafting and tile laying game designed by Michael Kiesling and published by Plan B Games.

Azul is another feather in the hate for Plan B Games that seem to be producing hit after hit and proving they are a force to be reckoned with in the board game hobby.
