Hi all,

Am I understanding this correctly?:

you can place as many discs of your own colour as you want in San Francisco.

All players can place discs there even if there is already a disc of another colour.

Every single disc of your colour placed there is worth 9VP.

Thank you

Yes. And this is the same for Kansas City.

Just to be clear, each player can have at most one disc at each city OR station regardless of whether another player has a disc there. Disc spaces on the main board CANNOT be blocked like in a worker placement game. But Kansas City and San Francisco allow each player to have multiple discs of their color placed there instead of just one.

Each disc you place in KC of SF requires a separate delivery.

Notice that the icons next to Kansas City and San Francisco show a picture of a disc, and the penalty/reward for each disc placed.

Good post. I don't think I've ever delivered multiple to San Fran before. Usually one last big delivery to San Fran, but now that I know it's possible, I might try for this.

Interesting to note that if you haven't delivered to Sacramento yet, that actually gives 10 VP (6VP alone + 4VP link to San Diego).

It can be a viable strategy but isn't the only one. I think I delivered to San Fran 4 times in one game, but when you're focused on doing that you're not getting many other points along the way.
