Details What's in the Box? How To Play Rule Book Reviews and Questions


Welcome to the hustle and bustle of the bazaar district of Istanbul! Merchants and their assistants are hurrying through the narrow alleys attempting to be more successful than their competitors. Good organization is key: Wheelbarrows have to be filled with goods at the warehouses and then swiftly transported to the various destinations by the assistants. The goal of the merchants is to be the first to collect a certain amount of rubies.

Istanbul: Big Box is the All-in-1 package for Istanbul, including the base game as well as both expansions, Mocha & Baksheesh and Letters & Seals. This combination also gives players the option to play on a big 5 x 5 tiles bazaar.
