I have a lot of trouble wrangling tokens on mobile, so ive been relying on the sheet. Also new route is left as an exercise to the reader

Looks like once the spreadsheet is updated, that will be the game. I donít see how anything that happens in the M&A round would do anything meaningful.

GG everybody. This 18xx is amazing.

Orvin

Anyone up for giving this another go on rr18xx.com? As Panzeh said earlier, it is fully rules enabled, so no one has to worry about keeping up a spreadsheet. It also works really well on mobile.

I can dig up the signup activation password if anyone needs it.

Orvin, can you explain what happens when a company you've shorted merges with another company that you have shares in? I presume the shares held automatically closes the short, but I can't find out anything specifically about it in the rulebook.

It took me a while to find the relevant section. Look under section 5.1 about closing out short positions. It basically states that any time you own both a short and a regular share, you return the pair to the open short interest space on the board. It does specify this can happen due to a merge.
