Mandala bonus question in TTR India Sun, 04 December 2011 09:50
This is not totally obvious in reading the rules :

Say I build a continous loop train going Manmad - Khandwa - Raipur - Waltain - Bezwada - Indur - Manmad

If I have the following 3 destination tickets :
1- Manmad - Waltain
2- Khandwa - Bezwada
3- Raipur - Indur

Obviously I score the 3 tickets but since all 3 tickets can be scored following two separate paths, I assume I score 3 mandala bonuses i. e. additional 5+5+10 points, although I actually have built only one loop.


True?

Absolutely...

The idea is to try and make a big loop with all your tickets included in it...
Easier said than done as you will see...

Thanks

We sure can Wink
I hadn't noticed it was in the general forum in the first place...
I suppose that's what you get when you open all unread subjects in tabs...

Thanks for the heads-up Caboose...

Np Franck. I know most people usually post in the general forum when they should have posted in the respective forum.. Smile

Yes, your large loop represents a Grand Tour of the country. You can build several smaller loops instead, if you like loop-holes, but it's hard to win that way.

One of the reasons the bonus is tougher than it sounds is the way the tickets were designed. I'll be impressed if anyone can find a set of three (actual tickets) as compact as the example above.

Just a quick question about scoring in case of several loops - if, for example, a player builds three small separate loops, completing one ticket per loop, is he awarded consecutive bonus 5+5+10 or just 5+5+5?

Cheers!

It doesn't matter whether it's one big loop or several smaller ones, so it's 5+5+10. I haven't seen that particular scenario but I have seen a big loop with two tickets and a smaller loop with only one and that would score in the same way.

Thank you for the clarification!
