Azul and Azul: Summer Pavilion board game review - how does the tile-laying smash hit and its second sequel compare?

Is the third in the tile-laying series another classic?

Azul is a modern-day classic in a lot of board gamers' hearts, Wheels included. So when a second game in the series came out, a lot of fans were left somewhat disappointed when it didn't quite live up to the original.

A new challenger approaches, though, in the guise of Azul: Summer Pavilion. Wheels is here in this Dicebreaker double-biller to not only review it, but also to tell you why you should still play the absolutely fantastic Azul.
