Am I correct that Station 5- Rhiw Goch is not used?
This means that we have only 6 stations.

No - it _IS_ used; all the Blaenau Ffestiniog Stations are used in it's 2 player version. Any restrictions are shown at the top centre of a station.

If you're referring to Snowdon, then Waterfall station is left out of the 2 player leaving 6 stations.

I must say Tony, you are very awesome at responding to questions here. I'm sure it's greatly appreciated by all Snowdonia fans. I for one think it's awesome!

Love the game

Sorry Tony, but I am still confused.

Yes, it's Snowdon that I am referring to.
So I will have:
1 Blaenau Ffestiniog
3 Tan-y-Bwich
4 Plas Halt
6 Penrhyndeudraeth
7 Minffordd
8 Porthmadog

That makes 6 stations.

Is this correct?

Thanks

Kred, the cards you are listing are for the Blaenau Ffestiniog game. The version of Snowdonia that is listed on page 12 of the rulebook (very last page). That's the advanced version of the game and has a different set-up and uses the darker side of the station cards, and as Tony said, uses all 8 station cards.

Snowdon is the basic version of the game that is explained throughout the rulebook. You use the lighter side of the station cards for that, but in that version of the game you take out certain station cards depending on the number of players. In that version of the game, for two players, you take out #2 Waterfall Station and #4 1/2 Passing Loop. So you will have 6 station cards for a 2 player game of Snowdon, the basic version of Snowdonia.

The station cards for Snowdon are:

1. Two Viaducts
2. Waterfall Station (only for 3-5 players)
3. Hebron Station
4. Halfway Station
4 1/2. Passing Loop (only for 5 players)
5. Rocky Vally Halt
6. Clogwyn Station
7. Yr Wyddfa (The Summit)

I wouldn't say that the the 'Blaenau' scenario is an 'advanced version' of the game, more that it is a 'different' variant, as is the case for all of the additional scenarios/expansions that are available. They just bring that extra element of variety that increases the replayability of the game as a whole.

I only said that it was 'advanced' in order to help distinguish it from Snowdon in order to help explain the correct station cards to use to the OP.



But it also says at the top of the Blaenau Ffestiniog rules:

"The Blaenau Ffestiniog game is for 1 to 4 experienced Snowdonia players only."


So while it may not be 'advanced', it's not recommended to play the first time you play Snowdonia.
