Istanbul is my SO favorite game and for me, I mostly seem to like it more with the first expansion included. I enjoy certain aspects from the second expansion, but we mostly don't like it.

I thought I once read the designer had 3 expansions in mind, although I might be mistaken and it was 2. So, anyone know any plans or ideas about a next expansion?

Also, the Caravan Leader mini expansion/promo...any idea how to obtain it? (the release with official rules included).

Interesting that you are asking for more. For me, right now, it is right at the edge of too-much for what it has going when the two expansions are being used.

This is just a new rule with an identifying token. You can download the rule on BGG and use any small object as the token.

I'm reasonably sure I've seen Ralph Bruhn (the developer) say somewhere on BGG that they were done with major expansions. Maybe there'll be another promo here and there, but I think the city is topping out at 25 locations.

As James says, the Caravan Leader expansion is just a rule and a marking token. If you want the actual black camel piece, it's the same one as in the Camel Up Referee promo which is in the Geek Store. It doesn't come with the Istanbul rules, but someone recreated the rule sheet in one of the forum posts.

Yes, and this is still true.
But maybe it's interesting for you to know that "Istanbul - The Dice game" will be published soon.
It's not really a simplified version of Istanbul - so yes, the theme is the same, but the gameplay is quite different. So it's again about collecting goods and Lira to finally exchange them into rubies, but now you have to use your dice to achieve this ...
A game usually doesn't take more than half an hour and it is lighter than the board game.

I'm sorry, but to be honest I don't think this will happen ...

If you come up with a good expansion idea, make it and I'm sure you'll find people here for playtesting to get it to a good balanced state :-). (And who knows, if it was really good maybe you'd convince the publisher to take it on).

Pegasus posted today on facebook that there will be an Istanbbul Dice game. It will be a stand alone game.
It's not an expansion but at least it's something.
