You should do a refresher with the coffee expansion. This is one of my favorites, and I think it's my wife's favorite game.

Hi guys, could you please elaborate on that odd German-English translation thing one of you mentioned at the beginning? Thanks.

I was wondering how long it would take for a ban on that joke to be made, but I didn't expect it to be in the first 10 seconds!

Very cool play through and I like the discussion afterwards. I'm off to go play Istanbul now, and hope to implement some of what I've learnt from you guys.

Actually, when you move to the fountain, you can decide which assistants you pick up again, thereby creating a tactic for your next turn to go to a space with an assistant already there.

They point out to Nikki she can get the fifth gem finally!!! I've been so freakin confused why she didnt win TWO turns ago. She didnt have to got to the fountain if she went there the turn she got the green materials

This is a pretty fun game and relatively easy to explain as well. I played it for about 7/8 times so far. But it turns out I have learned the rules wrong. I always thought you had to pay one good to roll for the jewelry on the black market. But you also get one.

I understand all the mechanics except how the heck movement works. >_<

Another great video from you guys :-)

Just bought the game and came home to see if there was any reviews or game-plays about it and found that you had just uploaded your video 11 hours before, nice coincidence!

Great rules explanation from Dave (as usual), I'm definitely taking notes for my first play-through.

Fun game and well done all. The digital version is good and is on sale for half off on Steam today -10/25/2020.

Collect all the Mosque cards Guys! it gets you two gems!. Always get the red card first if possible it is I know you played this years ago but very useful when rolling die next the blue to give you that extra assistant and upgrade your cart as quickly as poss to get another gem then try and grab the gems from the jeweller and the Palace while they are still cheap! I know this is an old episode

at 58:45 Nikki paid 2 goods too many?

Looks like a fun game.

At 1:08:48 Dave wan't supposed to trade all those resources in. That card should have been put at the bottom of the deck on his previous turn when he took the exact same action before.
