More Azul? Crystal Mosaic Expansion Revealed

Azul Crystal Mosaic Expansion Revealed

Next Move Games have announced another Azul title! Just when you thought Summer Pavilion might be the last Azul title for a while, Crystal Mosaic pops up it's head. In a somewhat unclear post it seems rather than being a standalone game, Crystal Mosaic is an expansion for the first game. This wallet friendly news is further enhanced by what's inside the box.

Crystal Mosaic - What We Know

The first thing is four new double-sided player boards. The original Azul came with double-sided player boards. Therefore, this expansion would take your options up to four patterns to achieve. Perhaps more excitingly for us geeks is the inclusion of four separate plastic overlays. They appear to be compatible with the original game's player boards. It is actually nice to see some support for the original Azul, which still continues to sell well. This is often demonstrated by our monthly top 10 sales!

New patterns on the player boards will be a bit more involved than the plain grey backs of the original's alternative pattern. They will give rise to new strategies and drafting priorities. The overlays are also an excellent inclusion. One of the big complaints of the original was that it was easy to knock your scoring marker off your board.

Should this expansion sell well it is easy to imagine that similar titles would be announce for Stained Glass and Summer Pavilion. Arguably, neither of those titles need plastic overlays to quite the extent that Azul does. However, it seems easy enough to develop new pattern window and boards for each title respectively.

I was very happy with Zatu until recently when I start to receive games damaged during the transport. I reported the problem and they eventually improve the package of the next shipment but the last one I received was slightly damaged again, and again the packaging is to blame

Made a number of purchases from this site and service has been universally excellent. Good prices (often cheaper than Amazon), quick delivery, and on the one occasion when a delivery went missing (not their fault) they couldn't have been more helpful in putting things right.
