Alert Scotland Yard 2 - Game Thread

This will be the game thread. Please only the players should be posting here. Any comments from others should be in the Peanut Gallery

Here is my original write up on how to play Scotland Yard. The only change being to add that no two detectives my occupy the same space on the same turn, so if someone has moved there before you get your move in you are out of luck and will have to move somewhere else.

For the new players this is how things will go:
1. The fugitive will send me privately his or her move.
2. I will reveal the fugitive's ticket (or his position on turns where it is revealed.)
3. The detectives post their moves publicly in this thread.
4. If the fugitive wasn't caught, we do it again.

I will kick the game off in the next post after I determine starting positions. :popcorn:

Just let me know if you want to change your move, Lees. :yup:

Reminder: The fugitive's position will be exposed on turn 3.

Now it is the detective's turns to get their moves in!

Sorry MonCap You can't take a bus from location 50. Only a Taxi, and no taxi to 67.

But there is a green path to 67. What can I take to get to point 67? There is a bit of green in the node and the green path connects with it and in the instructions you said that a bus can be used between points connected by the green path which 50 and 67 are. So how is it that I can't use the ticket?

In order to use a bus, you must be at a bus stop. That is those numbered locations where the top of the number is a green dome, or half circle, indicating that it is a place where a bus can be caught.

50 is NOT such a site. In order to go from 50 to 67, you will have to use a taxi, not a bus, but the taxi does not go directly to 67 from 50. It will take you three turns following the yellow lines.

Similarly, even though you are on a numbered location which is on a dashed red line, unless the number square itself is red, you cannot catch a subway at the location, because it is not a subway stop, which have red number squares.

Unfortunately, I can't take a taxi since there isn't a yellow path between me and my destination.

Since I can't go there, I'll take a bus to 49. :sigh:

MonCapitan2002...I do not believe you can take a bus, as you are not at a bus stop.

I believe that in order to move from where you are, you are required to take a taxi. Which direction you wish to go on the taxi is your choice, as long as it follows the yellow line....

Oops. Yeah. I got my colors confused. I want to take a taxi from 50 to 49. I meant to use a taxi earlier. My bad.

Sorry for the confusion. godfry is right, for bus or underground you must be at a space that is a stop.

You can ignore the F on the map. That was an accident. It is not the location of anyone. :woopsie:
