    Couldn't get two points this turn if I didn't. Potentially

    Anyway, I think the play now might be 'end the game this turn before ArcSyn goes first by spending all your actions'.

    Hedgethorn could potentially take the lead with a good expansion and next turn.

    It's fine.
    It just means I went from 2 points or 1 point and first next round, to 1 point or 0 points and first next round.

    I'm not sure why I took transport first aside I needed points desperately, and it makes my second action a choice of whether you or Hedgethorn wins rather than being able to put me back into contention in any way.

    @MrBlarney: you expanded my route incorrectly on the game map: my final branch was E4 to N5, not E4 to E5.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Assuming that correction is made, then

    Transport passengers:
    N5 to S7
    E2 to E3
    E2 to E3
    C4 to C3

    The C3 Office was already filled last round, so there's no slots for your transportation action. Doesn't change the final rankings, however.

    Thanks for playing, everyone! This game seems to be deceptively tough. The system of planning actions before resolving them is remniscent of Dominant Species, which is just as punishing. I don't really have time to put more thoughts down right now, and I forgot to write notes throughout the game, but I'll see what I can post later. If there's interest, I can run another game of Bus; otherwise, I've got other ideas I might want to put energy into pursuing...
