Proposal: Odd: Euston

Fails, s/k. ~lilomar

Add the following Oddity to Euston:

When a player wants to move from Euston to another station on the Northern Line, they must first roll DICE2 in the GNDT. If the result is a 1 they may not move to a station on the Bank or High Barnet branches; if the result is a 2 then they may not move to a station on the Charing Cross or Edgeware branches.

Actually it’s quite ambiguous to me.
Is Camden on a branch?
And Kennington?
AND Mornington Crescent?

against So, can’t I just try to move, not be able to move to where I want, not move, then reroll?

Good point, if you only have to roll when you “want” to move.

against CoV. And maybe we should keep a boring glossary somewhere that names things like these branches, and gives an explicit list of stations that lie on them.

for I don’t see why failing to get the right number wouldn’t cause the player to continue to want to move to the same location. They’d have to somehow prove they’d changed their mind twice to be allowed to reroll.

It’s also problematic that “may not move to a station” has no expiration.
