Hallo,

I just read the rule and has a question:

During the Issue Shares phase, do we get income equal to
1) "how many shares we advanced that turn" times 5, or
2) "how many share we have on Issued Share Track" times 5?, or
3) something else

Example: I'm at 4 shares now. During Issue Shares, I advanced from 4 to 6 shares (move 2 spaces on Share track), do I get $10 or $30?

Thank you.

Only for the newly issued shares. E.g. $10 in your example.

(This makes sense thematically: it represents income from people buying the newly issued shares. The old shares have already been purchased.)

Acording to your example:

You advanced from 4 to 6 shares, so you get $10.

Yes, it is the hard way...

Altough, if you like Brass and Throgh the Ages, you're used to it.

EDIT: My answer was a little slow, as I'm in my games.

When learning the game, it's best to remember this quote from JC Lawrence:

Quote:
Let's get the basics down: First, this game doesn't like you. It doesn't like anybody else either, but it particularly doesn't like you. If you ever have a question on the rules or how the rules apply to a particular situation then pick the answer that hurts the most. You'll almost certainly be right.

Thanks all!

True.. I read the example given and did the math, if you build track for $9, then have to expense for $6, how about next round then?
That's why I doubted about how you get money during Issue Shares at the first place. Damn!

You had expected something easy and without a well lubricated slide into the Pit of Despair?

The game hates you! The game wants you to lose!

It is entirely possible (and happens in real life) that a clueless newbie (or even a careless non-newbie) goes bankrupt early on, even after the first turn.

Truly, going bankrupt before the first turn is an admirable accomplishment.

Well, hopefully you've managed to at least deliver a cube or two a couple of links to help you a bit.

It's usually a struggle to get past the point where you're not taking out loans to finance your company. Some maps, it's easier, and other maps, you'll still be taking loans on the last turn. While it's certainly possible, don't expect to be rolling in money!
