Description

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 advantage over competitors. Buy rubies or trade goods for them.

History

In Istanbul, you lead a group of one merchant and four assistants through 16 locations in the bazaar. At each such location, you can carry out a specific action. The challenge, though, 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…
