Review for istanbul expansion mocha baksheesh

Price was $23.82. Bought the expansion after buying the game. It adds enough to keep the game interesting and enough different from the original that it is worth the investment. Still in keeping with the original. Lots of fun.

An excellent expansion. Doesn't change the original, but adds new flavor! (literally coffee flavor). . Won't ever go back to playing just the original. The one exception is if i'm teaching someone new. I would highly recommend against playing this if it's your first time playing istanbul or teaching this to someone who never has played istanbul. On the second or third try, however, they should be ready to take this.

Aeg Istanbul Expansion Mocha Baksheesh Board Game
Click to see NoticeAeg Istanbul Expansion Mocha Baksheesh Board Game (5840aeg)"Sometimes expansions come out for board games and they don t add any value to the gameplay, or they just make the game unnecessarily difficult. This is certainly not the case with istanbul: mocha & baksheesh. . If you read my previous review of istanbul, you know that i m a big fan of it, so when an expansion came out, i bought it immediately. It expands the number of tiles from 4 4 to 5 4 and it adds wooden bags coffee into the equation. . The coffee can be collected and used to buy rubies outright, to trade in for powerful cards that let you move as far up/down and left/right as you want or use the smuggler, governor, or coffee trader pieces without paying a good or 2 lyra. . The coffee trader, as you may have guessed, lets you trade goods for coffee. There are also new cards that you can use in lieu of moving your player piece that are pretty powerful (e. G. Max out 1 type of good + take x number of another good, move back to the fountain to collect your assistants and then take another turn, etc. ). . There s now also a roadblock piece that you can use to prevent your opponent from crossing over. Using this means that your opponent has to take a roundabout way to get where they want to. Not only that, when you place it anywhere you want, you get to use an action of an adjacent tile of your choice. In all honesty, we forgot about the road block piece when we played, and we were so caught up trying to collect coffee, we even forgot to collect the other goods. . The new coffee cards, tiles, and pieces really add some new strategy and gameplay, all while keeping true to the original game. You don t feel like you re playing a totally different game, it feels more like falling in love with a favorite all over again. It changed the tiles we would normally race to and made us rethink of how we should buy rubies. . The game still has its sense of balanced gameplay. I was losing with 1 ruby to my wife s 4 rubies, but within 3 turns, i was able to tie it up. Then it became a race for the final 6th ruby (which i lost). Overall, if you re a fan of istanbul, pick this expansion up right away."

Alderac Entertainment Group Istanbul Board Game

We have been searching for games that play well in a 2 player set-up, but with options for additional players when we have friends over. My wife loves this game. With the game board being adjustable, we can modify it so we don't get burned out. We have yet to play it with friends yet, but we are looking forward to it. . We have purchased a few games this year, and we are very happy with all of them, but this one has been just great. The quality of the components, the artwork and the game play is just great. I think this will be a game we will be giving as a gift to a few of our friends.

Welcome to the bazaar of istanbul!  hustle and bustle in the bazaar district of istanbul: merchants and their assistants are hurrying through the narrow alleys attempting to be more successful than their competitors. Good organization is key: wheelbarrows have to be filled with goods at the warehouses and then swiftly transported by the assistants to the various destinations. The goal of the merchants is to be the first to collect a certain amount of rubies. Product description you are leading a merchant and four assistants through the 16 places of the bazaar. At each place, you can carry out a specific action. The challenge is that, to carry out an action at any of those places, your merchant needs the help of an assistant and has to leave him behind. To use that assistant again later, your merchant has to come back to that place and pick him up. So plan ahead carefully to avoid being left with no assistants and thus unable to do anything.

Istanbul Board Game (aeg05809) FAQ.

One of my absolute new favorite games! it seems more complicated than it is, but it actually plays very easily and pretty quickly. I taught my 9 year old son and 13 year old daughter how to play and they enjoyed it as well. The two-player variant is also very enjoyable. Lots of different options for game play as the board can change every time you play as well. -Notice from Q. Hurst, Rutland

Click to Show istanbul board game (aeg05809) Details

Istanbul provides a great next-step experience for those who are looking for something beyond catan/ticket to ride/splendor. The game simulates a bustling bazaar where each player maneuvers a merchant around, dropping off assistants to gain goods/money and cards ultimately trying to be the most efficient in obtaining rubies. The game looks attractive on the table, . . My wife and i love this game - for the 30$ range, there is a lot of game in here, and replayability is a plus as the board can be set up randomly, although certain strategies may emerge after a while. Expansions can spice that up though and for gamers that enjoy the game and are interested in expanding, there are two available, that can be combined together into a mega-game variant 'the grand bazaar' that uses everything and feels like a more complex game.

Istanbul-board-game-(aeg05809) set picture

- P. GuestI picked this because it has some different game mechanics from the other board games in my collection and because the modular board makes it great for packing. I was not disappointed; the game's box is a standard size, but it comes with zip lock bags instead of a plastic organizer that makes it easy to pack up the pieces without the box. I downloaded the rule book onto my tablet and the game easily fit in the small, odd places between clothes in my suitcase. . The gameplay is quick an engaging with little down time. It's a basic pick up and deliver mechanic with each player making only one move and taking one action each turn. This means that, even in the first play through, the turns go around the table quite quickly. I also like that, after the random set-up, there is little to no chance involved. There are a few tiles on the board that involve betting with dice and a random card draw, but with those minor exceptions this is a game of decision making skill rather than lucky die rolls.

I was looking for a new game for my husband and i to play, and after doing some research decided on this one. Though admittedly not a huge "gamer" in the board game culture sense, we like to have a bunch on hand to break out instead of just sitting in front of the tv to unwind. We have played and enjoyed:. . -ticket to ride. -catan 5th edition. -firefly: the game. . We really loved firefly but i was looking for an option that would be a tad shorter. I also was keeping an eye on options with possible expansion packs, so we could add to it in the future if we really enjoyed it. Since it is usually just the two of us, having great gameplay with 2 players was a must- but we wanted an option to add players when getting together with friends and family. . We have played a few times and so far i am very happy with my purchase for the following reasons:. . -easy set-up and rules. Each player is racing to collect rubies, which can be acquired a few different ways. Along the way you are also acquiring money and goods- mostly to help with the larger goal of collecting rubies. The board game consists of 16 place tiles. -nice middle ground between strategy and luck. You can roughly plan ahead, but not as much as with some of the above mentioned games. In that sense, it is a somewhat relaxed/go-with-the-flow game as opposed to a "i need to constantly be thinking about and planning moves 8 moves in advance" type of game. -since the tiles can be rearranged, the game will differ slightly each time you play- as you figure out the most efficient way to navigate the board. . Overall, this was a nice purchase for us. The key to keeping it interesting, i think, is to always use a random tile layout. I am sure adding more players adds a whole new dimension and i look forward to trying out one of the several expansion packs!

Days of Wonder Five Tribes: The Artisans of Naqala Expansion

Five tribes: the artisans of naqala, the first expansion for five tribes, introduces a new tribe to the game, and players will want to use these artisans to help them in their quest to claim the sultanate. The artisans, represented in the game by purple meeples, allow players to craft precious goods or magic items, with some of these items being worth victory points (vps) and others unlocking special powers for their owner. To make use of these artisans, you'll need to visit the new tiles included in this expansion: workshops (where the artisans craft their items) and specialized markets (where players can purchase specific merchandise that they need). An additional tile in the game features an impassable chasm, and this tile as well as the included mountain markers forces players to adapt to new landscapes when moving meeples on the board.

Plan B Games Azul Board Game

Azul was designed by the world famous, award winning game author michael riesling. Azul captures the beautiful aesthetics of moorish art in a contemporary board game. Players compete as artisans decorating the walls of the royal palace of dvora. By carefully drafting the correct quantity and style of tiles, the most clever of artisans plan ahead to maximize the beauty of their work (not to mention their scores! ) while ensuring they wasted no supplies in the process. Introduced by the moors, "azulejos" (originally white and blue ceramic tiles) were fully embraced by the portuguese, when their king manuel i, on a visit to the alhambra palace in southern spain, was mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the moorish decorative tiles. The king, awestruck by the interior beauty of the alhambra, immediately ordered that his own palace in portugal be decorated with similar wall tiles. As a tile-laying artist, you have been challenged to embellish the walls of the royal palace of dvora.

The F.A.Q. for aeg istanbul expansion mocha and baksheesh board game

Essential expansion for istanbul! after playing with the new tiles the 4x4 original game feels too small and confined now. The coffee is great, it just adds more room for different strategies. I do not play istanbul without this expansion, even when introducing it to new players!

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: Can you add more players with the expansion (more than 5)?

L. Laura, Tennessee says

Great expansion. Adds more depth to an already great game.

T. Bullock, East Riding of Yorkshire

Improves the base game with more options and less chance for players to revisit tried-and-true winning paths through the tiles. Heartily recommend as i wouldn't play istanbul without it.

K. Carol, Bradford says

Quality product, very fast shipping as well.

S. Ophelia, Northamptonshire

Greatly enhances the base game. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes the base game and just wants more options.

Y. Arnett, South Dakota says

Good job.

U. Michele, North Somerset

This expansion made a competitive 5-player game workable for us. Pathways to points in a 5-player game doesn't work so well with the base game, but the baksheesh cards and mocha additions add useful and fun options that makes 4- and 5-player games even better. (the impassable barrier part of the baksheesh, however, has not proved to be popular in our games yet, though. )

J. Julie, North Dakota says

Phenomenal game, excellent expansion. Our favorite go-to game right now! if you have istanbul and you purchase the coffee expansion, you will likely never go back to playing it the former way again!

H. Audrey, City of London

My fave of the istanbul expansions. great game!

K. Eva, Nova Scotia says

If you have played istanbul at least 5 times, you need this expansion. To me the base game was getting boring and the first/second players had huge advantages. Now, tiles have been added that evens this out and there are many strategies to win. . After playing with this expansion (and the neutral token rule), i'll never play without it again.

L. Guest, South Dakota

We have owned and played over 300 games in the last two years. We are now at the point where i'm focusing on expansions for my hobby, in order to enhance the games we love and choose to keep. . + you can find a free pdf version of these rules online. . + updates the wainwright and the caravansary to support the new product flowing through. . + more bonus cards. . + the mocha system of coffee handling is clean and easy to use. . + the mocha system is not overpowered, so those wanting to use a "classic" strategy can still win, but someone can also leverage the mocha system to win. We definitely do not feel the added power of coffee takes away, but adds to the game. . + the roasting plant is another great tile that adds variety of exchange to get more coffee beans. . + the baksheesh options (via tavern) can be frustrating for some but fun for others. You get a "road block" you can put down between tiles, forcing others to move around the road block. If i don't like the road block, i can simply take a turn or two or three and take ownership of the road block. I can be very effective! . . + the guild hall is a powerful tile. The cards on this tile will use up your entire turn (no moving or other actions), but the cards can be very powerful in pushing a player to an advantage or not. I'll include a screenshot from the manual that shows some of the guild cards. . Overall: we have no reason not to play with this expansion and go back to base game. Even teaching the game to new players isn't too difficult as the mechanics are clear and straightforward without over complicating anything. Yes, you can enjoy many games of the base game without it. But for those of us who have already played through 20+ random tile setups, we were very ready for this expansion, which brought new life into one of our family's favorite games. . Totally worth the purchase!

R. Gloria, Indiana says

Of the two expansions for istanbul, i prefer this one. It really adds another dimension to the game. I've only played istanbul once without the coffee expansion it wasn't nearly as fun. I highly recommend buying this is you are purchasing or already own the main boardgame. . Pros - adds other winning strategies and tiles. Great improvement to the main game. . Cons - even more little pieces. When packing the game up, it's easiest if you keep all the coffee specific items together.

I. Campbell, Maine

We love istanbul and this is a great expansion! plays well with 2 or 4 players and adds additional ways to get gems and gives options to change movement within the game and the way you take your turns with the use of guild cards and tavern tiles through the use of 4 new places (and 2 revised places that add coffee to goods gained). I highly recommend this expansion if you enjoy the base game!
