trains will not place. please help! Sat, 10 August 2013 03:49
So basically, occasionally i run into a route that won't accept my trains. What can i do?

So far has only happened on the second of two parallel grey routes consisting of 1 - 2 trains (ie someone claims the a route between two cities and i cannot place my train on the open route next to them). Needless to say this is extremely frustrating because this has kept me from being able to finish routes :\


- happens mid game (ie not at the end)
- yes i have enough trains left
- yes i have enough train cards of whatever color i am trying to use
- yes the route is actually still available
- if i try to place other routes it does work, just not that one specific route
- it has happened three times now, each at a different locations
- using firefox
- java is up to date


Thank you for your help!

My guess is that you are playing a 2-3 player game. The rules state that if someone claims one of the double routes, the other track is not available to any other player.

So it's not a bug or something that you're doing wrong, but just the rules of the game. Have fun! Very Happy

Oh, sad!!

I am pretty new to the online game and we never played with that rule in the board game version so i didn't know (obviously). Thank you for letting me know. I'll adjust my strategies accordingly.
