Are the doublers working?

Post by Rawiri » 27 August 2017, 17:11

Wondering about this after my last game here. The story is as follows: I was building the Trans- Siberian line and coming into the last round I had 210 points, and six doublers placed. Also the points enhancer was placed.

The points without doublers were:

Grey: 9 spaces = 9×1 = 9
Brown: 8 spaces = 8×3 = 24
Natural: 7 spaces = 6×7 = 42
White: 6 spaces = 10×6 = 60

Without doublers that's a total of 135 points, which the interface was duly showing.

Doubler bonus with 6 doublers should have been:

Grey: 6×1 = 6
Brown: 6×3 = 18
Natural: 6×6 = 36
White: 6×10= 60

So doubler bonus should have been 120 at that rate.

So starting from 210 at 2nd last round, score at last round should have been 210+135+120=465.

But instead my final score was 345, denying me the win (boohoo poor me :D ). But anyway my point is that doublers don't appear to be working.

Am I right with these calculations and what the final score should have been? Or have I misunderstood how doublers work here?

Only the highest value track is scored per section.
You don't get cumulative points from lower scoring tracks.

I'd also like some clarification on the doublers. Here was my situation:
Gray: 10 x 1 = 10
Brown: 9 x 3 = 27
Natural: 8 x 6 = 48
White: 7 x 10 = 70
Doublers on spaces 1-8

At the end of the game I received 156 points for the Trans-Siberian. By my calculations above, I should have received 155 points without counting doublers. Can someone tell me how I ended up with 156 points?

Thanks in advance.
