Yeah, so far I'm just posting a status update after each complete round. I probably should post a brief status for new turn order and money after the bidding, though; I'll do that in future.

I assume you mean the shortest way possible, due north, for $3. You now have $2 cash remaining, FYI.

redtrain Build Sparta direct to Argos, for $2.

abodi, you're up!

Sorry, abodi, ideogram already built that route. If you want to connect Pylos to Time you'll need to go north, which will cost you $8. But that would leave three of us all connected there which I don't think goes well for anyone...

greentrain abodi 3 2 $0 1 $3

Turn: 2 Round: 2 Action: yellowtrain jpozsr
13 Empty City markers remain


Current Event: Mountain Snows (Builds including mountain hexes limited to 3 tiles)
Future Event: Experimental Engine (Deliver at engine+1 this turn; not for Speed Record)

Available Cards:
Speed Record
Passenger Lines
Service Bounties: Jerome (Old West)

Note: Please spot-check my math every so often; I'm not trying to cheat, but it'd be easy for me to overlook a point or a bond or something. I believe the above is all correct through ideogram's turn.

Lol. I think my other options would have been a lot more annoying

Actually, I think I figured out that this wastes you an action compared to what I thought you were going to do, so hey, have at it. cool

redtrain Build north from Argos to Thebes for $4.

Whoops - guys, we messed up and skipped greentrain abodi's second-round action somehow. My fault, I think - I listed ideogram as the next player when I posted the most recent status update. Very sorry about that.

Fortunately, none of our three actions this round affected the board - yellowtrain and bluetrain made deliveries, and redtrain upgraded engines. So, let's pretend abodi's build from Verne to Time happened before those, and now he can take his third action for the turn. Will that majorly affect anyone's strategy?

Ceej I think your income is incorrect: 5 vp = $7 - 2 bonds = $5.

Whoa. Thanks for pointing that out. Not sure what my brain did there. So I have $8 cash at the moment.

Cool - glad I had that extra $1 ideogram found for me! cool

redtrain Deliver black from Pylos to Thebes for 3 points. I do not collect Speed Record, nor do I pass Go or collect $200.

If I understand the bidding process, the fact that you all passed means that you all reverse places in turn order. So the new order is Ceej - abodi - jpozsr - ideogram.
