I'm teaching the game (Eastern US map) tomorrow and have a question about the number of available RR operations cards. At the start of a 6-player game, you put out the 3 starting cards, plus the 6 major route cards, plus 12 dealt from the deck. That's a total of 21.
Do you then replace ANY card that gets taken, maintaining a total of 21? Or perhaps you don't replace the major routes and/or the starting cards, eventually possibly lowering the total available to 12. What's the correct rule for this?
You never replace cards, and in most games the total will be far lower than 12 before too long.
Only one new card comes out at the end of the turn (3 rounds of play) after income and dividends and before the next turn order auction begins.
To conserve tabe save there's also no need to put out the major line cards. They're only included for those who wish to use the old Railroad Tycoon rule where they're shuffled in to the operations deck. The major lines summary cards more than suffice.
