Rule 2.5.2 states that the minimum possible bond in a 3 player game is 60 pounds. Rule 2.5.6 states that the number of cities in a bid, in a 3 player game, can range from 4 to 6. Rule 2.5.9 states that the lowest value for a city is 20 pounds. So, I'm left wondering what in the hell am I missing from this picture, as it seems to me that the minimum possible bond in a 3 player game is, mathematically, 80 pounds (4 cities times 20 pounds)?
Can anyone explain this to me?

Minimum is 60... so as long as you do less than 60 your fine. Yes, 3 player least you can do is 80.

OK, that didn't really answer my question. Doesn't a player's bid have to cover the cost of the number of cities in his bid, and isn't the fewest number of cities in a bid, in a 3 player game, four?

Yes... so you are correct. Practically in a 3p game your lowest legal bid would be 4 €20 cities for an €80 bid. The minimum city count is adjusted up because you each have more starting cash in a 2p game.

Right  that was my point, exactly. The rules state twice that the minimum bid in a 3player game is 60 pounds.
