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!
