I'm a scary clown!
At a recent gaming night, Michael, Andrew, and Bill got together to play a game of New York Chase. Since Andrew was more familiar with the game, he was chosen by the group to play as Mister X, the villain who’s job it is to survive 25 turns of the game without being cornered by the other players, the detectives.

Both Michael and Bill played as 2 detectives each. At game start, Mister X began the game in Midtown Manhattan, with both Michael and Bill having detectives covering the subway stations of uptown and downtown. It was a tight spot for Mister X to start in.

After Mister X’s first reveal, the detectives quickly started to close their dragnet around him, even bringing in a chopper to airlift one of the detectives in closer to the action, and setting up some roadblocks at some key subway platforms, further hampering Mister X’s chances of getting away. At one point, unbeknownst to Michael and Bill, one of Bill’s detectives was literally following 1 step behind Mister X, move by move, only 1 space away from him! Andrew thought he was to be captured for sure, but right before his next reveal, Bill had opted to have his men guard another avenue of midtown, giving Andrew the opening he needed. On the turn of the reveal, he did a double turn and ran downtown as fast as he could.

This is where Mister X made his one big mistake. Thinking himself safe, Andrew proceeded to move slowly throughout downtown Manhattan. Each turn, Michael and Bill continued to use the subways to move downtown, and bring in chopper support as well. Andrew should have had Mister X perform his last double move to get out of the closing dragnet, but he kept thinking he had enough time to escape. In the end, this flaw of logic doomed him, as Michael and Bill were able to completely cordon off downtown Manhattan, trapping Mister X! With 2 turns left until Mister X would have won, Michael and Bill were able to capture Andrew near Battery Park on turn 23.
