  Imprecise translation and other issue on TTR Pennsylvania Fri, 13 November 2015 10:42
I played TTR Pennsylvania and I found two issues:
1) the explanation of the 2 players rule in Italian is not complete, it misses a part between parentheses that is present in the EN, FR and ES rules.
2) How do I know how many points I score with the 5 and 7 trains long routes? TTR Europe has a scoring card, but it misses the 5/7 scorings.

Based on the scoring for Märklin, of all places, the values for 5- and 7-train routes are 10 and 18, respectively. As far as I can tell, Märklin is the only other version with 7-train routes. I'm frankly surprised they didn't include a scoring table in the rules.

Thanks ericamick.

Unfortunately they didn't include a scoring card.
On the UK side of the map there are the scorings for routes from 1 to 5, but Pennsylvania has lengths ranging from 1 to 7 and anyway, looking at the other side of the map is not convenient when you have placed the trains...

You mean you don't play on a glass table and look at it from the bottom??

Sorry couldn't resist...

just played TTR Pennsylvania - it seems that the scoring is ONLY the stock cards and not the train routes as in orignal TTR?
We did include train routes, + and - for completed or not, and also train length values based on other train maps as stated by others, and the scoring was very high, 300 something to 290, etc.
Cannot tell from rules if this is the correct way to score (stock bonuses plus train routes) or ONLY stock bonuses???
any help? thanks, Tony

The tickets have numbers on them. Do you think they're just for decoration? Not scoring them would make them all but pointless. I doubt most people would find the 15-point bonus worth the trouble.

Sad Confused (Thanks?) Eric, but what I meant was do you count the trains even though there are is not a number map, or just the completed tickets and subtract the incomplete ones? The rules do not state anything about either the tickets (which you assume because of the NUMBERS!) or the trains themselves.

If you're right, this would be the only one of the dozen or so versions of the game that doesn't score routes or tickets. Does that sound remotely plausible?

Hello

Just a confirmation that ericamick got it right...

1) routes are scored on the Pennsylvania Map (when a rule is not written in an expansion, the rule from the base game applies)

2) the 7-wagon route is worth 18 points

Thanks and enjoy the game!
