Molly and Brenna, Mr. X is able to use the underground routes best, so you two need to make sure those are blocked off. The pink routes travel the farthest, and so he clan slip completely away. You two both moved AWAY from the underground areas. I think our strategy should be to make sure that we have him so that he can't completely elude us, and then slowly close in on him.

Yes. See post far ^ above for clarification.

Rule clarification
But, remember, if a Bus has an on/off location at point A and C but NOT B, then you do not have to stop at B. Same for the underground.
This contradicts your later post.

Yes. See post far ^ above for clarification.
So, to ask once more. If we take the underground, or the bus, can we bypass all stations in between wherever we start, and wherever we want to go?

Wait. What? It doesn't. When taking the UG, you have to stop at every UG station along the way. When taking a bus, you have to stop at every bus along the way, but you don't have to stop at any location that does not have a UG on/off (or a bus on/off, if you're on a bus).

Step 1: Pick a line.
Step 2: Follow that line until it crosses a station that is marked for that color line -- if it's a pink line, follow it until the next station with a pink marker, if it's green, follow it to the next station with a green marker.
Step 3: You cannot move beyond that station using that line.

This is an awesome game.

:pullsheadout:

:pokesheadinagain:

And guys, it's not that hard. You have taxi stations(yellow), bus stations(green), and underground stations(red). You can take the the taxi between taxi stations, the bus between bus stations, and the underground between underground stations.

That's all.

I need until at least tonight to decide on my move. I've been working all week, and today is a doozy in the making -- I'm on my lunch break at the moment.

Day 4.
Bad news - Mr. X is still at-large, and 4 more turns till a reveal, you need a strategy. Try making a list of all the possible places Mr. X could be - it's only been 1 turn, there aren't many possibilities!

Mr. X takes a bus.

Current position are as follows:
revgirl, 40,
Lil Yellow Fireball, 71,
GtC, 111,
lucky13, 140,
crazydebater, 79,
Mr. X: 105. (this was 1 turn ago)

It's...it's only been 1 turn, I thought.

He could be at:

87
89
72
107
108

That's it.

lucky13 needs to take the underground to 89, just in case. I really doubt Mr. X is there, though.

Lil Yellow Fireball needs to take the taxi to 72, although again, I doubt Mr. X is actually there. But if he's at 107, having one of us at 72 forces him to stick to the river or cross it.

crazy debater needs to take the underground to 67, to get closer to the action as quickly as possible.

revgirl should take a taxi to 41, in case Mr. X is at 87 and wants to take a bus.

I'll take the underground to 153.

I agree with GTC's analysis.

I take the underground to 89

After playing Mafia with Nathan, I have come to the conclusion that he is always right. Always.

Taxi to 41.

Oh....sorry...for some reason I thought I'd already said... :oops:
Taxi or Bus (either one) to 89 (underground station)

Aaaah! I meant I want to go to 72 with my taxi!!! Sorry....I got confused w/ where everything is....

I'll have to finish everything later (working now, sneaked a peak on) and I'll post it when I'm done.
However, I can tell you now, Mr. X is still at-large, and he'll be taking a bus (so you can formulate some strategies, etc).
