Holiday Giveaways 2019 – Ishtar by iello
When we included Ishtar in our guide to games for teens and adults, I was kind of torn. It’s not a terribly difficult game, but definitely isn’t something that young kids could play. It’s elegant, yet requires a bit of strategy and forward thinking. You can read specific details in our overview of Ishtar that we posted last month.
This game from the award-winning designer Bruno Cathala is an excellent addition to any game shelf. If you haven’t already picked up a copy for the holidays, there’s still time! Plus, here’s your chance to enter to win it!

A goddess from Mesopotamia, goddess of the very strong emotions of love, sex, desire, and war. Associated with the planet Venus. Her most prominent symbols are the lion and the eight pointed star.
Other than seeing her image in the British museum (I remember really liking the owls in the carving), I don’t know anything about Sumerian gods.
Was generally more interested in Isis and other Egyptian goddesses.
