I'm just interested in this setting. Is this related to some history events or something? Cause I can not imagine why a merchant need to catch opponents family members while doing business.surprise

Perhaps you are catching their little urchins red-handed, as they try to pinch stuff off your wheelbarrow?

Because you know that this family member should be in prison at the police station and that you will gain a reward for catching him.

Why are they in prison in the first place? I thought it a little odd too.

Well see one player's family is running a secret frankincense smuggling operation.


Another player has a camel chop shop, stripping humps, femurs, and tongues right out of stolen camels and selling them on the black market as replacement parts for other camels.


A third player's family pirates illegal transcripts of famous plays and sells them out of the back of a wagon down on 49th Street and Grapevine.


The fourth player runs a bank account scam via email.

There's obviously a high crime rate amongst the merchant community. Though this doesn't seem to deter folk from transporting rubies around in wheelbarrows!

It's rough and tumble place that Istanbul.

I'm really excited for this game despite the jailbirds running around!

I like it when not every detail is explained and some things are left to your fantasy. Of course, the reason can be that a certain mechanism had to be implemented in a game somehow, but in this case here, I really like the idea of having a crook in the game. When I thing of bazaars they are always present.

Cheers,
Andreas
