Game End Statements
Nashville Cats Railroad, Green - Jonathan Palfrey
Thanks to our GM, our host, and the players for a good game. My strategy here was obviously to grab the best route through the mountains on the south side of the map, so I was a good candidate for any east-west runs on the south side. I was worried that I missed out on the north side almost completely; but there was so much competition among other players in the north that I hoped that would work in my favour.
Anthony (SIPA) has a good line, reaching most parts except the east; although, as things have turned out, I think he'll need some luck to win (we'll see). The other players, I think, suffered from competing with each other too much in the north, although Christian (BIEN) also has a good grip on the east side.
Foggy Bottom Railroad, Blue - Rob Pinkerton
Thanks again for a fun map, this has been a great group to play with. The build to the west through Missouri was lots of fun, if a bit silly...
Graceland Mystery Tours, Purple - Mike Dyer
Seems as I'll have to settle for fourth again. Oh well. Good job from Jonathan as usual. Thanks for a good game!
