This is a standalone executable Java program that handles home town choice, next destination choice and trip payout in a very easy way. It saves about an hour for a 4 player game and allows you to concentrate on more enjoyable play features such as moving and purchasing. I wrote this and am willing to supply the source code to anyone on request.
1)double click the file. It should run as an application.
2)tell it how many players you have
3)type in the names of the players, one in each text box
4)press the "choose home city button" for each player. Place their markers on the city given.
5)Whenever a player needs to get a new destination press the "next destination" button. It will alert you if you get to choose which region to head for, and if so it will alert you if you miss a turn for rolling the city you are currently in.
6)When a player arrives at a destination just give them the indicated payout.
