Hi

I just read the rules (twice) and gave it a newbie shot with the program available in the files section. Everything ran pretty smoothly until this happened:

At the end of the canal era, VPs were counted but somehow the marker didnt move up the scoring (income) track. In other words, when I started the rail era, I started with the same income amount than at the end of canal era

Is this a bug or should I keep track of the VPs separate from the income track?

Haven't played the computer version, but on the real board the track has two numbers on each space and there are two separate markers to keep track of income and VP. Your income does not change when you score.

On the computer version, the income track doesn't track vps, only income, which, as Jack states, doesn't change from era to era.

Thanks

In the real game, how do you differentiate the 2 markers on the same track? I suppose they have different shapes?

The income markers are wooden disks and the score markers are square cardboard chits with top hats on them.

This picture was posted to illustrate an issue with the color printing on the tokens, but these are the bits in question.
