HELLO, good evening and welcome to Octopus's Garden, the subzeen with its very own Railway Rivals game. It's a subzeen to Jim Burgess' The Abbysinian Prince, which is now a subzeen to Douglas Kent's Eternal Sunshine. Which was originally a subzeen to The Abbysinian Prince, which was in turn originally a subzeen to Terry Tallman's North West Stealth George. (I hope you're taking notes. There may be a test later.) Produced by Peter Sullivan peter@burdonvale.co.uk. It's also available on the web at http://www.burdonvale.co.uk/octopus/.

Races for Round Seven

GENEVA: For Round Seven, you may enter up to four of these races, and then build up to 14 physical points of track (i.e. payments to rivals don't count against the limit; although of course you still pay them.) The deadline for Round Seven orders is SATURDAY, 7th APRIL, 2012 (the day before Easter) to Peter Sullivan, peter@burdonvale.co.uk

A reminder of the Special Run locations. In each case, it's to the 1st hex across the border (or, for England, the 1st hex off the ferry.)

That was Octopus's Garden #74, A Startling Press production.
