Railway Rivals game 14 (RR2387KT) – Turn 7

Previous turns: Turn 6 Turn 5 Turn 4 Turn 3 Turn 2 Turn 1 Start-up

STEAMPUNK IPA took an early lead in the races, while FOGGY BOTTOM RAILWAYS failed to score overall. SCHWEIZER MACHINENFABRIK built east this turn, possibly with a strategic aim. GRACELAND MYSTERY TOURS, NASHVILLE CATS RAILROAD and BIEN'S INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS NETWORK all scored reasonably well and, like most of the others, connected into towns. FOGGY BOTTOM RAILWAYS started to build in Mississippi.

GM Notes

Some builds were truncated as players ran out of points. Remember: known junctions and parallel builds must be paid from the turn's points allowance.

Players can enter up to six races (plus any held over from a previous turn).

The Ohio River, with all its bridging restrictions, runs from the confluence with the Mississippi to the top NE Corner (I95/H95).

After the races, you may build up to 10 build points. Remember: known junctions and parallel builds are deducted from these points. The build points available after the races will reduce by 2 each turn.
