We are sitting down to play this map for the first time and we are not clear about the colours of Simonis and Gare du Midi - they both look purple to us! However, we already have a purple town (Arts-Loi - although it looks pink). Are Simonis and Gare du Midi both meant to be blue?

Red = Beekkant
Yellow = Merode
Purple (but looks pink) = Arts-Loi
Blue (but looks purple) = Simonis AND Gare du Midi?
Grey = none

Can anyone confirm please.

There is a similar problem with the 2-player map, but we have resolved that.

Thanks in anticipation

And while I'm on the subject of the 3-player Brussels board, we found the rule about losing 1 place on the income track if you build while in profit to be rather strange.

That sort-of forces players to take cash to bring their income down to zero, otherwise there is an effective $5 penalty for building. Presumably we are playing this right? Does anyone know?

Correct, the colors are:

Red = Beekkant
Yellow = Merode
Purple = Arts-Loi
Blue = Simonis AND Gare du Midi
Gray = none

There is in fact an effective $5 penalty for building if you are in the black.

Thanks for responding!

For some stupid reason, I forgot to subscribe to my own thread, so have only just discovered your answers.

At least we know we played the map correctly (and enjoyed it, despite me losing again).

I've uploaded an image file that your can print on sticker paper and affix to your board to make the colors clearer.
