Come on you Seagulls! Sami Hyppia's Blue & White army!
That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....
Actually, you can't place a passenger on a flag space.
See DoW's answer to my thread from a couple of weeks back:
When you claim a route, you are allowed to place a passenger "into a city" at one end or the other.
Can you place a passenger onto a Country's flag, or does it have to be a German City ?
We played that it had to be a city, otherwise your passenger is getting the slight advantage of starting on an empty space.
Is this correct ?
Yes your interpretation is correct you can only place a passenger on a city. It is in the rule page 3 in the "claiming a route " section.
