I love the production on this (especially the colour coordination) and it was an entertaining playthrough. I recently bought the big box version of the game and it's really good.

I really like this series and I like the idea of illustrating different strategies. But I would say maybe walk through the idea behind the strategy and why is it supposed to be viable. Keep up the great work!

My one problem with Istanbul is that it is way to easy to just buy Rubies and there are so many that you are probably going to win if you are first to it. (Haven't played with the expansion, might fix this for all I know)

The cool part of Istanbul is, that it's always exciting. The players are head 2 head most of the time. (as you can see at the end - 2 more times)

You went until 6 rubies ? I thought 6 rubies was only for the 2 players game. With 3 or more players I think you only need to collect 5 rubies. (Note: maybe the moka extension changes this, but I doubt it).

Whenever you collect an assistant by just walking to the place, you are not allowed to use the action of this place. Atleast, that's how we play it. Otherwise you could just jump between two places all time (like tea house and wainwright or black market and sultan's palace), block it 50 % of the time for others (who don't want to pay you) and rush towards winning the game. It does not explicitily tell you this rule in the script, but it says you may use the action of a place, whenever you're leaving an assistant.

At 14:45 the red player played the post office in a wrong way.
Is it allowed to discard a card and then draw it again in the same round like the red player did with the โ€œ+ 2 coffee cardโ€?

Why did you guys cut out the 7:40 part of โ€œredโ€ getting a ruby?
