Istanbul Dice Game
This is a clever adaptation of Istanbul, using dice as merchants' (the players) 'assistants'. The aim remains collecting rubies. These cost goods or coins, which players generate from their dice rolls.
Players can also get crystals, which will allow them to re-roll dice in subsequent turns. And they can also gain 'mosque' tiles that provide a permanent income – or may be turned in for a ruby. Yes, there are lots of ways to get gold of those rubies. The trick is doing it better than your opponents.
It's a quick-playing game that's good fun. (Note the game is English and German, though the cover is in German only.)
For 2-4 players, aged 8+, playing time 30 minutes: £18.00 (£15.00 without tax outside the EU)
