Luckily I Got the Funagain Rules
May 14, 2001

This is a very fun game in the same vein as Streetcar but in my opinion much more fun. You try to connect your Metro stations to neutral stations by the longest routes possible. There are also stations in the middle of the board that count double for track length. There is a lot of opportunity to mess with the other players as you can lay a tile next to any placed tile whether it connects to one of your tracks or not. It is very simple and very busy.

As you play, the board fills with tiles of twisting interlocking tracks and it is very visually pleasing to look at while still being clear as to what is happening.

I was lucky enough to order my copy from Funagain so the rules are clear. "Points for completed routes are scored as soon as a continuous line is formed from a starting station that connects to another arbitrary station (regardless if it is one of your stations or an opponent's)."

All stations are scored as soon as they are complete. This means each one, so if two are finished at the same time then two are scored. Stations are scored for whoever they belong to regardless of who completed them. As far as in what order do you score the lines, well, since it does not impact the game in any way, so score them in any order you care to score them in.

This was my second Queen game and since I picked up this one I have tried a few others. I have Expedition, Laguna, Schnappchen Jagd and Silberzwerg and they are all fantastic and equally playable by the family and hard-core gamers. Well, at least I like them--my girlfriend isn't crazy about Laguna.
