Istanbul: Digital Edition for iOS

By Acram Digital $4.99

Developer's Description

The official digital adaptation of one of the best board games in history Istanbul.

Istanbul is, without a doubt, one of the best board games to have ever been published. The long list of its awards and honors speaks for itself:

2015 Nederlandse Spellenprijs Best Expert Game Nominee

2014 Swiss Gamers Award Winner

2014 Meeples' Choice Nominee

2014 Kennerspiel des Jahres Winner

2014 International Gamers Award - General Strategy: Multi-player Nominee

2014 Hra roku Nominee

2014 Gouden Ludo Winner

2014 Golden Geek Board Game of the Year Nominee

2014 Golden Geek Best Strategy Board Game Nominee

2014 Golden Geek Best Family Board Game Nominee

In our 2018 digital version we have maintained all of the features that made Istanbul the fan favorite that it is, but also expanded upon it with a number of tools and features only available on the digital platform. We maintained the authentic board game feeling with the convenience you can expect from an electronic device.

So what is the game about?

Can you be the first merchant to collect a certain number of rubies?

Run, collect and trade goods across the bazaar

Take control over your assistants

Increase your wheelbarrow capacity

Acquire special abilities to increase the advantage over your competitors

Buy rubies or trade goods for them

In Istanbul, you lead a group of one merchant and his four assistants through 16 locations in the bazaar. In each such a location, you can carry out a specific action. The challenge, however, is that to take an action, you must move your merchant and an assistant there, then leave the assistant behind to handle all the details while you focus on larger matters. If you want to use that assistant again later, your merchant must return to that location to pick him up. Thus, you must plan ahead carefully to avoid being left with no assistants and thus unable to do anything
