Ok, sorry if these are already posted...did a quick search but am still confused.

After selling to the Distant Market, "you then increase your income a number of spaces indicated at the side of the track (in addition to the spaces you advance from the tile itself)."

I understand advancing my income marker based on the number on the back of the cotton mill, but what about those "spaces indicated at the side of the track"? What does that mean???

Damn it, this game has a large set of rules. It all seems intuitive enough for me, but working through this seemingly short eight page rulebook has been like reading Heart of Darkness again. "Oh, it's only a hundred pages...how long could it take???" shake

Thanks for any help!

On the cotton track, there are a number of numbers in big gold circles. That's the extra income you get for selling your cotton on the distant market. As I recall, they go "3", "2", "1", "0".

Cheers!

3/2/1/0 is correct. Each value has two designated spaces. There is one space at the bottom, below each of these pairs. If the market marker reaches this, your cotton mill remains face-up and your turn ends immediately.

Don't forget that the "income" you get from the external market is a permanent income increase on the income track, not a one-time cash payment as some people have thought in the past.

You should have started with the movie

Brass is difficult to grasp at the beggining (I've played about 8 games before I had everything right!!!!) but it's worth it.

As everybody told before you gain the income equal to the numbers on the cotton demand track (after the distant market tile is revealed of course).

Complementary info: the only time on the game where you gain money instead of income is when you're able to fill the coal/iron demand spaces when constructing a coal/iron industry.

Hope that helps
Paulo

Shoot...ok, I played Brass for the first time tonight, and I still don't understand my original question.

Let's use this example:

My buddy Keith sells to the Distant Market. A -4 tile is turned over. The cotton market drops down next to a "1". He flips his cotton mill over and moves his income marker the # of spaces indicated on the back of the cotton mill tile. How many spaces does he move his income marker due to the Distant Market?

Does he move it 1 space because it's next to the 1 now on the Distant Market? Does he move it 4 because it moved 4 spaces?

Thanks (again) for any help!

p.s. we only got through half the game before more people showed up, but boy, was it an awesome half game! Martin Wallace = genius!

You go up on the income track the number of spaces equal to the number shown on the cotton demand track. On your example, if the marker ends on the space marked with "1" you move up your income marker the number of spaces correspondent to the cotton mill plus 1, which is the number shown on the distant market.

Hope that's clear now.

He never said what his mill was worth.

You're right. Corrected. Thanks.
