  2 possible bugs in TTR for iPad Mon, 10 December 2012 23:08
Hey guys,

I have the original TTR for iPad along with all the expansions and love the game. But unfortunately, during the games I played with my brother via Wi-Fi, I found 2 things that seem to be bugs.

1- In a 2 player local game on the Switzerland map, when I was buying new tickets, it showed me a ticket I already have in the possible options. I selected that ticket and in the end, I received 2x points because I had the same ticket twice. It was a ticket connecting France to another country. I don't know if it can happen in other versions of TTR or with city-city tickets, but I haven't seen a problem with them yet.

2- I am a iOS developer myself, and to be able to test some of my apps in older iOS versions, I also have an iPad 1 with iOS 4.3 installed. When I play TTR on that iPad, sometimes, the music, along with the sound effects of the cards stop playing and a few minutes later the screen freezes. It doesn't crash, but It forces me to close it from the taskbar. I don't think it is a memory warning issue because I had no apps running in the background when I was playing the game. It might not be a iOS 4 specific problem because I played mostly on iOS 4.3 and haven't had much experience with it in later versions of OS. I'm going to try more with later versions though.

I hope you can find the reason of these problems.

For the Swiss Map the country to country tickets have two copies each so having them both is not a bug.

Hmm, I don't have the physical board game itself and don't know the exact ticket amounts, but even if it has 2 of each country tickets, shouldn't the points for the 2nd ticket be ignored unless the player has completed a different route?

I mean, it shouldn't give me points for a France-Germany route 2 times just because I have 2 country tickets that contain France-Germany as one of its possible routes. I don't know if the rules allow this or if it's a bug, but it's wrong in either case.

It's not wrong in the game or the rules, I don't believe. It's just the way things works with this map...I'm not sure there's anything wrong with having more than one ticket that could take you to the same place. In a lot of games, different players will end up with those same tickets and it won't even be an issue. Smile

You think that getting one in when drawing tickets is bad? I had a starting hand where I had both Germany-to-any country tickets, AND both Italy-to-any country tickets. With, on all, the Germany-Italy connection being the highest. Needless to say I had my starting hand. Smile

I think both are bad because they make things more luck oriented.

Drawing extra tickets are always luck oriented. The trick is to increase the chances of drawing tickets that you've already finished, and in the Swiss Map, you need to draw cards early and often to win.

The thing I love about the various TTR maps is that each of them require slightly different strategies to win. It doesn't mean it's a bug or that it's broken, it's just a different game than the others. Some people might not like it as much, but I think it's pretty fun! Cool
