I just played my first solo game last night. 43 points was my score assuming I made no mistakes. I had several questions:

1) How many stables can you put in a pasture assuming it is a multisquare pasture? If you can put more than 1 stable in a multi square pasture does each additional stable again double the number of animals?

2) Grain and veggies do not accumulate, right? You can only take one during the action phase. Just checking.

Thanks!

Yeah one stable per square and each one doubles the capacity (so two stables quadruples the capacity etc.)

And yes the grain and veggies don't accumulate.

You can put one stable on each square on the board. So if a pasture is two squares large then you can have two stables in the pasture. and each of those doubles the capacity of the pasture. Or in this case, (2x2x2x2=) 16 animals (of one kind)

Right, neither accumulates. Check for the arrows on the things that does accumulate. They are missing from the spaces where you get grain and vegetables

The math on this works to give the right answer but should have been ((2+2)x2x2)=16
With a three square pasture and two stables it would be ((2+2+2)x2x2)=24 and not 32 like multiplying all the twos would give.

Thanks, that thoroughly answers my question.

Now that I know the answer I see that having more than one stable in a multi-square pasture doesn't really make sense because it is overkill in terms of game points.

He said it was a solo game, so that's who answers.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

There is a card that lets you keep different animal types in the same pasture. If you had this card it might make sense to jam multiple stables in a pasture so it would supply all your animal housing needs.
