I've not played the game yet, but I have a question - As the thread title asks - which do you prefer? The normal "colourful" side of the board or the "greyed out" variant side?

I'm actually tiring of the colorful side...Have only played the grey side once...So, to continue to enjoy & play Azul, I think I'll give the grey side more attention. Also, while Azul is a fun game - I don't always agree with any high ratings it recieves. For me it lost replay quickly.

The colorful side is much easier for new players to understand. It is also a bit of a "lighther" game for experiences players. The Grey side allows for more scoring but at the same time the ability to put yourself into a bad situation.

Although abstract is not my favorite genre, Azul is my most played game and one of my favorites. I enjoy both sides of the board but tend to prefer the grey side.

I prefer the color side because you can predict what the other players may take.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

I haven't tired of the colourful side yet. Will try the non-coloured side at some stage in the future.

I was quickly bored of the colored side, but have played many on the gray side and don’t see an end in site with the variety it opens up.

We still prefer the coloured side. The grey side feels more like an easy mode for us as there is less restriction in what we can do (assuming you don't carelessly trap yourself).
