This city game, of sleek and sensuous design, invites players to explore Istanbul, the fascinating megalopolis on the Bosphorus. In the form of a “memüri” game, it offers a kaleidoscopic view of the city in 81 picture facets and texts. Arranged altogether, the 81 distinctively shaped cards, with a simple line drawing of a cupola, create a rhombic ornament. The reverse side of the cards shows a detail of one of the city’s unexpected sights together with a symbol representing a category. Two images from the same subject make up one pair of cards.
