    Now is the perfect time to buy into GSW before JPants gets $12 for free.
    Not for me though, because I had to spend my money preventing JPants from buying WLW.

    I guess 38th lets JPants get $12 due to auctioning my share previously, and leaving me with no tools to fend off JPants (whilst 38th also gets $12)

    Actually.
    I might be able to help if I had more money.

    But then JPants would have more money.
    And then could fend off any bid on his rail for the turn it takes him to get $12.

    So yeah.
    Best I can do.

    I need to visualize to plot bad strategy so I don’t know what you are taking about. Is jpants just getting dividend ?

    JPants is connecting all three cities.
    And by auctioning my share immediately before his turn, I had to spend my money to prevent him paying dividends on 1.5 railways instead.

    Oh right he is first player so a turn ahead

  • JPantsJPants Registered User regular
    I figured 38th was going to beat me to it honestly. I wasted a turn bringing those 2 towns on to my route.

    Would it have been better to let me invest in your railroad so you could invest in mine and split the 12$ dividend? To busy at work to do the math but seems like it might have worked out slightly better.

    No.
    Cause then it's your turn, and you Pay Dividends instead of Building Track.

    Also it looks like the $12 is paid per railway that connects major cities, not only once for one railway per game.

    Didn't consider that (though I think I'd still build track with my other railway) and also I absolutely thought it was a one time per game not one time per railway. Probably wouldn't have changed much for me but still, good to know!

    I probably would have bought into 38thDoe's city spanning railway.

    Anyway, Pay Dividends
    @MrBlarney @Daemonis

    38thDoe's railway is also about to make a free $12 :(

    Other than $6 from connecting all three, its pretty low paying as you will likely see

    On the previous update t was

    JPants: £14, Shares: CBSC £7, GSW £4
    discrider: £11, Shares: WLW £5, WLW £10
    Daemonis: £2, Shares: MGW £6, GSW £9
    38thDoe: £14, Shares: BCD £8

    so it should be

    JPants: £20, Shares: CBSC £7, GSW £4
    discrider: £31, Shares: WLW £5, WLW £10
    Daemonis: £20, Shares: MGW £6, GSW £9
    38thDoe: £20, Shares: BCD £8

    I think.

    Yeah, I accidentally pasted in the player holdings before adding in the new dividends. Something funky with my flipping between pages and my post draft. Should be accurate now. (£26 / £31 / £26 / £20, that is)
