Letters and Seals (expansion)
The first thing this second expansion for Istanbul adds to the game is some extra tiles, expanding the size of the bazaar. One of the new places is the embassy. Merchants (players) can deliver letters for the embassy, earning seals which can be exchanged for rubies by the secret society.
On top of the expanded bazaar, players have the opportunity to recruit an assistant (pawn) – rather more useful than the assistants of the base game. This lets players take extra actions independent of their main merchant pawn.
This expansion adds alternatives, giving players more options every turn, while maintaining the speed of gameplay.
For 2-5 players, aged 10+, playing time 60 minutes: £18.00 (£15.00 tax free outside the EU)
(Don't forget you'll need the base game to play this)
