Take a look at my first message on this page, that begins "Assuming I'm not...". That outlines the bid process. If it's not clear let me know!

abodi, you said any available color was good, so I gave you green. Easy enough to change if you want something else.

FYI to all: the "Inc." column in the score chart (which I basically copied from ideogram) is what your income will be at the end of the turn based on your current score and number of bonds. That's why you're all negative at the moment.

Everyone: table talk is encouraged! Be chatty. When you actually post your move, please include the train icon of your color in the message so it's obvious that it's an action (and whose action it is). They're easy to insert: just type out eg.

:greentrain:

to get the green train.

Oh great, I knew that was gonna happen. Now I'll be playing catch-up all game again.

Heh! Hey, you know how I play. I don't think this is anywhere near as strong an opening move as the Triple Upgrade in our Railroad Tycoon was, though. I'm not sure where I'll go from here. Anyway...

redtrain Take New Industry card, turn Pylos Yellow. I'll use the BGG dice roller to draw the cubes. FYI, the bag currently contains 10 purple, 11 blue, 10 yellow, 10 red, and 13 black (wow, pretty even!) - the purple cube abodi delivered to Hogar is sitting in front of him, not in the bag, until somebody claims the Passenger Lines starting bonus.

Edit: Ok, two black cubes. Guess I'm gonna want to head to a time warp pretty soon since there's no black cities in Greece! Anyway, updated map and stats coming shortly.

If you'll all forgive a brief geek aside - ideogram, when you did the maps for the Railroad Tycoon game, how did you do the track lines exactly? The mechanism I'm using is proving to be exceptionally tedious, and I don't think the results are anywhere near as clear or easy to see as yours were. What tools/settings did you use to draw lines and curves?

the yellowtrain will deliver the :red cube: from azimo to Sagan.

I have a question as I dont have a copy of the rules yet (order the game should be in tomorrow or Wednesday) When you build to the time jump spots is that the end of your build or can you continue from a different time board with your four builds?

Ceej redtrain is next

Grrr, I realized after sending my bid that you might do that. Now I have to think, darn it.

By the by, turn order is ideogram - jpozsr - Ceej - abodi (abodi and I tied so we flip places). jpozsr, you're up!
