Can I assume you mean South-East? (East isn't allowed)

Oops!

I actually meant west.

That means Blue will no longer provide shares and the next time orange moves will end the game, correct?

Blue can still merge into gray, and/or reach gray's home town, so it's not officially isolated.

Oh right, I missed that being able to merge stops isolation. Good thing I asked

Ok, I think I did the math right and this ensures me second place whether it's overridden or not. I veto with one share to move grey east instead.

Congrats to taser rates and thanks for running it Dancer.

I will point out that I made a mistake. The sheet said it was last updated turn 46 when it was actually 47 (together with the map update). If that changes calculations for people, the last turn can be re-done.


(currently updated assuming the turn stays as is)

And please do let's play it out. I'm not as good at maths to be sure I can predict the whole thing.

Technically you have to do that in the opposite order since the game ends as soon as you move orange.

Neither of those moves can effectively be vetoed (grey just moves into a different blank space, while orange will drive into grey no matter what), so I'm going to go ahead and tally final scoring.

The scores I've come up with are as follows:

taser rates 122
blackmongoose 69
Jordan7hm 69
xelada 55

blackmongoose was confident they'd earn second place, so I guess it's of course possible I made a mistake but... this is what it looks like in my book. There was a clear victor , regardless.

I think you still finish out the player's turn when game ends is triggered, you could be right though.

Cool. I figured I'd be shooting for 3rd.

Good game friends. This one took a while to suss out just the turn to turn decisions, and I think it would take me a few plays to figure out any kind of real strategy.

Thanks for running it Dancer.

Unlike the For-Ex PBF it didn't make me want to rush out and buy it, but I'd definitely play this again.
