Come on you Seagulls! Sami Hyppia's Blue & White army!
That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....
You don't have to connect into the city (or town). You can't just start building the link by playing an adjacent tile though... links must start in a city, or from an existing link.
This is correct.
And to take it one step further, you are never forced to connect to existing track - It is perfectly legal (and actively encouraged in our group) to build across the exposed end of someone else's track.
