Istanbul Digital Edition





Istanbul Digital Edition 


One of the things about Family Friendly Gaming is we always give our honest opinions. We like some things and we are not big on others. After our review for Eight Minute Empire Complete Edition Acram Digital asked if would play and review Istanbul Digital Edition on the Nintendo Switch. This downloadable game clocks in at 392 megs. I said sure we would try it. We had some paid sponsored videos to work on first of course. Yes we keep it transparent here at Family Friendly Gaming.

I do not like Istanbul Digital Edition. I will be open and blunt about that. I found this game confusing. Obviously I am not smart enough to play this game. Thankfully I only lost to the computer and did not try playing anyone online. I would need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to play online anyways. Istanbul Digital Edition does have a tutorial. I went through the tutorial multiple times.

Istanbul Digital Edition has a board with multiple tiles. Some examples are the sultan tile, mosque tile, marketplace tile, and more. Players have stacks of chips. When we move we leave one of our chips behind. This is leaving an assistant. If we go back we can take that assistant back. We can also bring all assistants to us at the fountain tile. We are trying to get six rubies to win the game.

There is money in Istanbul Digital Edition that we can collect. There are also goods. We need so many goods to get a ruby. We can also go to a specific tile to purchase rubies if we have enough money. As if this were not complex enough we also have cards we collect, use, and discard. In certain instances we need to pay off our rivals with money. My head hurt trying to keep all of this together. I thought Yu-Gi-Oh card games were confusing.

The music and graphics in Istanbul Digital Edition feel like they come from that area of the world. I have not been to Istanbul personally but I have been to other Muslim run countries. Five players can play this game at once. If you are up for learning a challenging game then Istanbul Digital Edition might be in your future. I did not enjoy this game myself though.
