Product Description

The players make traderoutes for the products of the land and try to connect cities by their traderoutes.

There are 5 different landsorts: agriculture (yellow) cattle-breeding (orange), vineyards (red), forest (green), and lakes (blue).

Before players can build traderoutes they must acquire knowledge about trading in the different sorts of products, traded at the different landsorts. To get that knowledge the players travel through Isi. EVery time you go to another landcard you take one of the blocks at that landcard. This block symbolizes the knowledge.

A player can use this knowledge (block) to build part of a traderoute (symbolized by a stick in your colour). That route-stick must go to a landcard with the same colour as the used block.

The goal for the players is to use their economical power to achieve the most political power. At the end, the city with the most traderoutes to other cities is the capital city. The player with the most traderoutes to the capital city wins.

A 2-player thematical game with no luck involved
December 07, 1999

Isi is a great two-player game designed by Corn van Moorsel from Netherlands. With no luck element, the game requires 100% strategy. I played Isi with different friends and we all enjoyed it very much. Every game we played was unique and we had many close games. The game time is also decent, about 30 minutes per game. Isi comes in a colorful tube and the game pieces are mostly made out of wood.

Don't miss this fantastic game!
