There were two other things I wouldn't to post about going into the OR but I can only remember one of them.
Warranties! A grantee by the manufacturer that this train's good for [however long OR's are meant to be]. A and D trains all come with one free warranty, and on purchase of any train from the bank you can buy more for 50 each, to a maximum of three for each train. A train with a warranty won't rust, but it loses a warranty at the end of an OR whether it ran or not. On the sheet, represent warranties with *s, so a Freight A would be 1H* and then at the end of the round, change it to 1H. That honestly sounds like a real pain.

That's a really bad lay because of two rules: routes can't have two ports as its two terminii (or two red off board areas), and that non-perm Freight Trains run the same big route. So you would go from Port to Shore w/ yr 1H, then nowhere.

Known Lecher

Toilet Rascal

Wait, wouldn't each 1F run Wells->Port, at least to start? I was obviously planning to upgrade Wells to green and build my way out of there once greens were available.

Since 1Fs can only run one hex, I thought port-Wells was all the farther they could run anyway.

Edit: ah crap I forgot that freight trains chain together. Let me re-lay that.

I remembered the other thing I wanted to say: market price moves are odd too! Not only do you move straight left or right rather than in zigs (just found that out, I was going to correct Lecher), but you move right up to four spaces by paying out more than or equal to 4x your current share price.

So I got the operating order wrong - L&E formed 2nd, so it's 'ontop' of the stack, which means it operates first.

So L&E lays two track, but 2x 2Ls for 200, share price goes down.

NGC operates, lays two track, buys 2F trains for 400 and share price goes down.

@FACKER is up with WVR

I'm gonna auto pass for this stock round, despite possibly loving up massively LOL

Edit: We've also entered phase B, so you can now upgrade yellow tiles to green

Also, the tile mix in this game? Holy gently caress.

Edit: Man, I should read the rules in this game more LOL.

CD has -1 on the spreadsheet for some reason.

I'll buy a share of WNR for 74 - I didn't see anything in the rules about limits on share ownership so I'm assuming that's legal.

To save time I'll do the same thing again next turn, and then autopass, leaving me with exactly 0.

Known Lecher

Toilet Rascal

Usually turns in 18XX stock rounds are 'sell as many shares as you want [within the rules], buy one share'. I can't think of any off the top of my head that let you buy more than one share at a time, except in a few games where a stock is doing really terrible and nearly worthless (like 1830 when a stock is in the brown part of the stock market).

FACKER

Gotcha. And it looks like the only limit on owning stocks is the limit on the number of certificates right?

Known Lecher

Yeah, a fair number of games will limit you to owning 60% of a company but I didn't see any such restriction in the rules for 1862 (unless I missed it).

This is because I'm a doofus and sold a share for 52 instead of 54. Fixed now.

Yeah it's legal to own more in this game, which is interesting/weird.

And yeah, you can only buy one share at a time.

So I believe it goes

Lecher - buy WNR
Facker - autopass
Squishy - pass
CD - autopass

Lecher - buy WNR again
Facker - autopass
Squishy - undetermined
CD - autopass

Lecher - autopass

meaning Squishy's up.

Yep, I'll buy a third share of ngc and pass, which makes cd pd again. If someone wants to make the new tab, just duplicate it, change the "previous round" cell to the exact name as the old tab, and delete anything in the stock, misc, or companies income/expenditure columns.

L&E withholds, then buys a C train.

This causes the A trains to rust but I'm not sure who has lost the warranties so I won't do that in the sheet.

Share price falls to 47.
