  Unable to place on second track Mon, 29 April 2013 08:53
So I was playing online and on solo and this happened a number of times on my Ticket to Ride Europe and America where there are two tracks the same direction and my opponent took one, and I was unable to take the other.

For example on Europe between Essen and Kobenahaven there is a duplicate track, my opponent took one and I tried to take the other . I had 2 locomotives (only needed one) and four purple. All I got was the error sound when I tried to place there.

Like I said this has happened a number of times, am I missing something?

PC version purchased through Steam.

You might be missing one of the rules. In a 2-3 player game, if one person takes a track, nobody can claim the other one in a double-track route. I'm guessing you were playing in a 2-player game (or 3-player) so this rule came into effect.

What rasmussen said.
If it's not that, make sure you had enough train carriages.

That was it, I was not aware of that rule.

Good to know!

Yeah, it's one of the few rules that require us to read through the rule book, so it often gets missed if people only play the online version. Everything else is so easy to figure out that most people don't need to read the rules all the way through.

Have fun! Cool
