Can't claim route on final turn Wed, 18 December 2013 16:17
This problem has occurred both when I play using an Internet browser and when I play using the Steam version.

During the last two games and occasionally before (but not always), I have not been able to place trains on the board to claim a route. The problem has only occurred on my final turn. The route is open and I have sufficient trains, so that it should be a legal move. In the Steam version, I receive an error warning that I don't have enough trains, but that's not true. The game will still let me do other things on my final turn, such as draw new tickets.

I've played about 40 games on-line plus I've played the hard copy board game, so I doubt that this is a case where I don't know the rules.

Any idea how to fix this apparent bug? Thanks in advance for any help.

maybe it is the way the error is phrased that misleads you?

if you have 4 trains left, but already placed 43 on the board, you are only allowed 2 more and you will get this error about not having enough trains left. You would be allowed to place 1 train, 2 trains or draw more tickets, but not place 3 or 4 trains.

I think you are correct, Mr. Bean. Thanks for your help.

In the boardgame, when I have actual plastic trains in front of me, I'm aware of how many trains I have left. When playing by computer, it might have been that I was so focused on the number of train cards that I had and was overlooking how many trains I had.

In any case, I haven't seen the problem reoccur.
