Bid sent. Woo!

One quick request, ideogram: Could you post your maps with [imageid=xxxxx large] instead of [... original]? Those huge pics make the page load totally wacky on my phone and tablet...

What does the "Passenger Lines" card do? I can't find it in the .pdf that lists all the cards. I think I remember seeing this in Europe RRT, but it's been a while since I played.

Edit: Oh, and purple is just fine.

I think by default it must be the one for upgrading to Level 4 first, but think it goes by a different name in one of the games.

Passenger Lines: the first player to deliver 4 different colors of cubes gains 4 bonus points. This replaces "New train", which was the bonus for being first to upgrade to level 4 engine. (So my "triple upgrade" opening from the last game isn't going to work this time...)

That will need to be part of the status update from ideogram until the bonus is claimed. You can see how I did it for the ongoing Railways Through Time game here, for instance.

How is that game going by the way? Too much going on for me to try and do both. Think all of our bids are in here.

Seems to be going great! ideogram and I are getting all up in each other's business, which probably means one of the other players is gonna win, but hey.

Last game I lost badly by starting in the NE.

So why not try it again?

Build from New York, NW then NE to New Haven. $4, meaning I have 2 shares out and $4 left.

wmshub I believe that build is $3, so you have 1 bond and $0 cash.

Also everyone keep in mind, this is the ROTW map, so there is an additional hex from New York NE NW to New Haven, and another one from New Orleans NW which lets you connect to Mobile in three hexes.
Sorry, I thought water was $4. I assume NE NW would be water too? It's a little annoying, I didn't know this map difference; I took that to try to block others out. Well, it's OK...I guess there is no scan of the ROTW map?

I assume the scan of what we are seeing is what we are playing, correct? Otherwise, I think I won the last game! whistle

Not of the whole map, but EndersGame has pics of the hex differences:



There are also fewer exits out of Toronto, but those exits were actually useless in Railroad Tycoon as well because they couldn't possibly connect to any other cities.
