This will be a short run test. We have found an iPad app called Survey Party that we are testing for PBEM.

We will post moves here and record the map on Survey Party, Financials on google docs.

Please feel free to point out any errors or ways to improve communication.

We did a random distribution of Privates and are starting at OR1a

Just a few rounds then if it works I we will start a 5 player game.

So in Summary:

Moves: PBF on BGG
Board: Survey Party on iPad
Financials: Google Docs: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15V7erh73lDeHHJcxYpBI...

Players:

Merger and Acquisition Rounds

No companies in RED or GRAY area so nothing there, I assume no one wants to Merge just yet.

Lets for the sake of keeping the Beta test rolling move onto OR1b



The order of play is the following:



6.2 Operating Order

Companies operate in descending order of share price.



So it goes: STR (Jordi) -> HRR (Hans) -> A&A (Andrew)

Questions:

Two scenarios.



If i do not have a second station, where can HRR lay a yellow track?

Quote:
While there is no track in the Company's home hex, the Company may lay any suitable city tile there. Otherwise, the track on the tile must form part of a route of the Company.
2. If I do have a second station don't I have to lay track before the station?

1) If green hasn't broken, HRR can lay no track. As Green will break in the second OR of every game, the above situation is rather difficult to conceive of.

2) Yes, for a game with restricted track laying like 1817, no for a game with permissive track laying like 1830.

I know you are correct, and I am not understanding.

For example.

3 players.

OR1a 6 level 2 trains bought, next there are 4 X 2+ trains to get trough.

How does phase 3 come around by the second OR?

Or do you mean OR2a?

Those four 2+ trains will be bought by the first companies in operating order, usually by the first two companies. It is left as an exercise for the reader to determine why 2+ trains are even better than 3Ts.

I think I see the reason why greens have not appeared yet. Jordi wrote the incorrect OR
