Alert Scotland Yard 3 - Game Thread

Welcome to Scotland Yard. :D If you haven't read the instructions yet, you should start there: Freethought Forum - View Single Post - Scotland Yard - Peanut Gallery

Each turn has two parts: (1) Mr X sends his move to me in private, and I post here which method of transport he took. (2) The Detectives post their moves in this thread in any order. Then I will post a map and the game will continue to the next turn.

Our Mr X for this game is Kael.

Here are the starting positions.
TurnXJCoBGCe
StartXXX2694155138112
1      

Here are you starting tokens:
PlayerTaxi (T)Bus (B)Underground (U)Black (Bl)2x (2)
Jerome (J)022xxxxxx
Contrapposto (Co)120xxxxxx
beyelzu (B)100xxxxxx
godfry (G)100xxxxxx
ceptimus (Ce)020xxxxxx
Kael (X):infinity::infinity::infinity:52

The tokens allow you to take the corresponding transport from one stop to another. You can only take a transport that stops at your space, to another space where it stops. Mr X is only limited in black and 2x tickets, which only he can use.

There is a link to a large map in my signature, the turn based map will be a bit smaller.

Here is the map of your starting positions, click to embiggen.

I will PM Kael his starting position and he can kick things off by making his first move.

Opps, sorry, I haven't been on-line much recently.

Are the starting tokens correct, I have no Taxi tokens?

Yeah the game instructions say us detectives get 10/8/4 tickets for taxi/bus/underground. I think Crumb probably cut-and-pasted a table from a previous game and forgot to edit the numbers. :chin:

The first reveal of the fugitive's position is when? Turn 3? Is that before, or after, the detective's move?

Turn 3 before the detective's move, so you have two moves without that information.

After your turn three move.

So turn three goes:

Kael Moves
Kael's position is made public
Detectives move

My first thought when I read this was: "Wow, taxis are public transportation in Britain? They nationalize everything across the pond there, don't they!"
