Async is how I’ve always referred to it.
I’m trying to register on Order of the Hammer, but it is having problems sending a validation email, I’ve definitely typed it in correctly and tried an alternative. Did anyone else have a problem?
Same issue here.
As the site says, email validation hasn’t been working for years. Follow the link provided to a BGG thread and ask there to be validated.
Cheers, I wasn’t seeing that message but registered now
Substitute Liverpool for Birkenhead, and this is fine.
Depends what cards you used though - we need to know that.
I had cards for both Birkenhead and Liverpool… But it might be better just to build a port in Birkenhead…(and the canal from Ellesmere Port)
There is no space for a port in Birkenhead, and a canal can use any card.
If you look at the map, there’s actually no way to build anything in Birkenhead in the canal phase, because a shipyard is the only option, and there’s no way to get coal to Birkenhead by canal/port.
Birkenhead is essentially inaccessible during the canal era. The shipyard requires coal to build, and there is no way to link to a coal supply.
Edit: @Benkyo got there literally seconds before me!
Yes, sorry, I had not magnified the image, from the distance I thought the canal was going to Birkenhead
So, if I’m on the ball, the new turn order is:
That is the correct turn order.
Chewy’s “board” should show zero tier 1 ports, not zero tier 1 shipyards. I think repetition of the player board/tile details would also be useful.
I’m afraid that’s a port in Warrington, not a shipyard.
The old game of you can’t do that strikes again. Give me a minute to rethink.
I totally forgot about shipyards and thought they were the same as ports
Can I confirm that there are no canals heading north from Bolton or Bury? The map has been the same for the entire game and I imagine it is designed like that, but it’s bloody annoying.
Handily enough, the image you’ve just posted in the beautiful games thread confirms no canals.
That’s right - no canals north from Bolton or Bury. Imagine Martin Wallace cackling in glee at the frustration the map design causes
Yeah, noticing the division of the map into 3 inadequately linked areas: ports, Blackburn line, and Manchester area, was quite an eye-opener for me after I submitted my first turn.
