1: Do the red barriers around the Harwich tile mean that a freight train run from Holland to London has a minimum of four hexes for the bonus? I couldn't convince some of the other players that the crow doesn't care about the barriers and flies right over them, meaning it'd be just three two hexes for the bonus (if you enter through the closest London hex).

2: The director's cert (DC) and 2 other shares of a company in receivership are in the bank pool, the rest in the IPO. Player A buys one share at current stock price. Player B buys the other single share. Does player A have to buy the next two shares from the IPO, **at the initial opening price**, in order to then get the DC? I.e. the DC stays in the bank pool until someone has acquired three separate shares?

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

I don't know about your second question but:

The crow indeed does not care about the barriers; see this response from the designer.

Absolutely. Another item not explicitly covered in the rules. Sorry...shake

I learned long ago that it's far easier to discover problems in rules when you read them than when you write them.

Plus, players stress rulesets in ways that are impossible to imagine.
Case in point; my wife is playing the previous edition of Talisman. It's taking forever. She's playing the Skyvern(?); the rat-man who can eat followers and gain a life point. She gets the "Crown of Command" which can turn any monster, including the Dragon King (who you must kill to win the game) into a follower. She teleports to the top of the central tower where he resides, makes him a follower, eats him and places an extra life point on her character sheet, winning the game.
My wife is quite the lateral thinker.
