Hi all,
can you help me scoring the VP at the game end please ?

Correct me for the following example :

I have 2 loans at the game end : [$10] and [$40], and $3 money left.

1) I score $ for my Railways. (for example : $35)

2) With those $, I pay off any of my loans I can : I then pay off the $10 one. I must keep the [$40]. I have $28 money left.

3) $28 money left = 5 VP.

4) I score VP for my built industries. (for example : 25 VP)
I than have 25 + 5 = 30 VP.

5) I assume the penalty of 20 VP for my [$40] loan.

My total score is : 30 - 20 = 10 VP.

Do you all agree ?
I need help. Thanks.
Guillaume

Not quite.

You have $50 in loans. It doesn't matter how you split it up.

2) After taking your railroad money, you can pay off three of those loans, leaving two loans unpaid.

3) $8 left = 1 VP

4) 25 VP + 1 VP = 26 VP

5) Two loans unpaid = -10 VP

6) Total = 26 VP - 10 VP = 16 VP

Yes, the rules only refer to loans in $10 increments. From page 10 of the rules: "Each single loan allows you to take $10 from the bank." The $40 loans are only there for bookkeeping purposes; you can exchange them freely for 4 $10 loan tiles.
