What is Istanbul about?
As a trader in the Istanbul bazaar, your goal is to get six rubies first (in a four-player game: five rubies). Rubies cost money and goods, and for those you need your assistants, represented by the dice.
The six icons on these dice tell you what your assistants can get for you: bazaar cards, lira, and four types of goods: cloth (red), fruit (yellow), spices (green), and jewelry (blue).
Every turn, you’ll send out 5 assistants. By combining the resulting icons and your previously saved Goods Markers, you’ll be able to collect and store resources (goods, coins, and crystals) or acquire Bazaar Cards and Mosque Tiles to get more benefits.
