Situation:

I start in position 1. Speed Card tells me to move forward 1-2 spaces. I choose to move 2 spaces.

Position 1: Mech , Oil , Oil , - , -

I move one space and step on the oil slick. This takes me all the way to the other side of the oil slick.

Now, here's the question:

1) Do the spaces moved by sliding on the oil slick count as spaces I was required to move by command (2 spaces, see above), meaning I end my move in position 2?

Position 2: - , Oil , Oil , Mech , -

Or

2) Do I keep going after sliding (technically ignoring the oil slick for the count) until I reach position 3?

Position 3: - , Oil , Oil , - , Mech

Thanks.

PS: Great game. Lots of fun.

Hi there, it's the second option: you take 1 step of your two movement spaces; slide through the oil to the other side; then continue and take your second step of movement.

PS: I know right! Played the tutorial and Mission yesterday with my kids and it was brilliant!

If you have any more questions or doubts about towing, then: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-1MTWIOlNM&index=2&list=WL

Might be of use. The section 5:36 — 7:09 is about towing and the final example Rodney touches on covers the issue raised in your question.

The youtube as a whole explains the rules introduced with the first mission (which is when towing is introduced).

"If you have any more questions or doubts about towing"
Looked to me like he understood you... but was throwing out that the link also helps with towing. No need to be snarky.
