Played Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra last night. I liked it better than "vanilla" Azul. Probably more thoughts later when I'm not rushing to get ready for work.

I like Azul. It's a good game. It's an excellent gateway game, IMHO.

Stained Glass of Sintra adds something Azul lacks - the ability to pass your turn.

They don't call it a pass, and there is another mechanical thing it does (resets your Glazier), but it amounts to a pass. And, in a two-player game, it can be a super-powerful play.


And there are times where you have no option BUT to pass (or lose points). And if you can force your opponent into that, it's an equally powerful play to make.
