Azul board

I cut the tiles out of 1/4" acrylic, so they only sit in about halfway. They’re very easy to remove.

Well done, this board looks very nice.

I don’t own this game, but I personally love this game. You’ll often see it on top 100 and top 50 board game charts.

right? Who knew I’d ever have to clarify things like “I love playing with my GF” (both work though lol)

As stated several times above - I have never heard of it but your interpretation is beautiful.

The wood is proofgrade - 1/8” maple and cherry.

The tiles are all cut from 1/4” acrylic. The black/white and white/blue tiles are from proofgrade acrylic, the other colors are from acrylic purchase through Inventibles

Thanks! I think I can take the rest from there. I’m going to see if I can make something similar.

Azul is on my wishlist, largely because it looks so pretty. Almost all of our games are co-op, though, because my daughter is both a sore loser and a bad sport when she wins. She knows better and is old enough to behave better, but it doesn’t matter.

Hi there, I was inspired by this post and ideas from Thingiverse. To start with, I just made the board for the existing tiles from the original game. As I am no friend of engravings, I used scoring for all decorations. Cutting time for the top-board was 22 min. Simple birch plywood with a coat of paint.AZUL_for laser


One aspect I really liked about the original game was the weight of the stones: no light plastic but decent weight . So I bought some glass tiles and just tried to engrave the patterns in the back. These turned out really nice. I included a comparison, original and glass mosaik tiles.

Oh the glass is gorgeous! and even more like the actual stained glass the game is focusing on :slight_smile:
