I guess there's more to starting a game company than just having a name... :(

What we are dealing with here is a perfect engine, a gaming machine. It's really a miracle of evolution. All this gamer does is sleep and eat and place little meeples, and that's all.

in the rules there's a little diagram that shows if the trajectory of a car 'cuts' a corner it's not allowed. do you check this before moving the car and have to pick a different spot? or is there a penalty for this? it didn't seem like the normal off road rules apply where your only options around the pawn are all off the track.

thanks.

We've always played (and I believe it's the correct way, although I may be wrong) that the move can't be done if illegal. So, if the corner would be cut, it can't be done and another legal intersection must be played. If that legal intersection happens to be off the track, so be it (and the penalties incurred).

If your only legal moves were either through cutting a corner or off the track, looks like hard braking is in order!
