    I have thoroughly misread the board this turn.
    Hedgethorn isn't on four buses and ArcSyn is getting a longer route, so I've apparently picked only a single route expansion.

    I'm actually comfortable rolling things back to your second pick if that'd be welcome, discrider. ArcSyn is the only one who took an action after you, after all.

    (I can't speak for anyone else, but my color blindness has led to several near disasters of a similar form already.)

    I'm not really comfortable rolling it back, because I was actually picking based on Hedgethorn having three buses (when it was Daemonis who got the third bus last round)
    So I would be picking something else as my first action.

    Wait no.
    I missed ArcSyn's route action because it was before the previous status update, and the rest is me rambling.

    Right? Once you pass then you're done, so it would skip to discrider?

    Yep, that's right. A couple of reminders:
    • The Clock action's effect is optional, unlike every other action. So discrider could just choose to let time continue to proceed once the action resolution rolls around if he'd like.
    • I just wanted to note that there are 13 of 15 passengers on the board; the next time someone takes the New Passengers action, they can only place a maximum of two passengers.

    That E-E4 I don't think is legal placement.
    When extending a line, a new edge must be added to the end of one of the line's existing heads. Usually, if there are any empty edges at a line head, then one of those must be chosen for expansion. However, if your line's head is at the same intersection as the head of another player's line, then you may extend your line parallel to the other player's route instead of into an empty edge. In addition, if your line head is at an intersection with no open edges, then it can expand in any direction.
    Bus_Extension_Example.png

    Speaking of, @discrider way to mess up my plans.

    Since I don't think it'll matter since we don't intersect, here's my extension:
    W-W6-W5-S1

    Hedgethorn gets New Bus

    Building Placement
    W6-House
    S1-Office


    @discrider or wait for daemonis to correct line extension

    Well, was contemplating W-W6 myself but I didn't think it would be worth it for me in the end.

    Probably wouldn't have been. Your route will give more options in the future.

    Just to make sure it was clear, the E-E4 extension is illegal since the heads of the line are at C3 and E6, and E-E4 starts from neither point.

    I'll post a status update once Daemonis revises his Line Extension action.

    I don't know how ArcSyn doesn't win now. A 3-point lead with at most three rounds left seems close to insurmountable.
