Yay! An oldie but a goodie (if not great-ty) Keep it up, Rodney.

Also, we're glad to see you made it back over the border safely. The wild land known as California can be a treacherous place.

Wow, thank you Rodney. My Istanbul Big Box order is on it's way - everything arrives a bit slower in Cape Town (not called the Mother city for nothing).

I just love your reviews and I found it is definitely the fastest way to learn to play a game and then teach those new to the game.

Absolutely looking forward to play this.

Ps. You are by far the best board game teacher!

Thanks Rodney!

I watched this on a whim, only to learn that I had been doing several things incorrectly, and/or forgotten some useful things, e.g., if you move two spaces, you don't drop off (or pick up) a worker in each space, but rather only that of your destination. I don't know why I had trouble with this, it is actually spelled out fairly clearly. Or that you may move your stack to an occupied space, not pay, and not take the action. I'm wondering if I've been paying wrong for the Mosque tiles, too. Arg.

In any case, I'm really glad I watched. Thumbs and GG to Rodney.

I noticed that Istanbul is now available in video game form on the Nintendo Switch. Just thought I would throw that out there.

The lighting in the thumbnail makes it look like your right hand is covered in blood. I had no idea Istanbul was that kind of game.

Istanbul is an AWESOME game! One of my all time favourites! Edit: BTW... I would highly, highly recommend the Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh expansion which makes the game amazing! The additional option of coffee really opens the game up. It really was what made Istanbul awesome for me!
