Basic Game Tile Edges
« on: July 02, 2023, 04:08:07 AM »
Just as an FYI, I was living up to the “Geek” in my name, and when looking at possibly using “The Coast” tiles to terminated the tile maps at the table edge, I decided to count the tile edges on the Basic Game tiles.

So, again just as an FYI, there are 79 City edges, 94 Road edges, and 115 Field edges on the 72 Basic Game tiles. To do the math, 79 + 94 + 115 = 288 / 4 = 72 tiles!

Presumably that is to prevent you from making a torus with only base game tiles, since you need an even number of each edge type for that to work.

Curiously, each of the first 3 expansions (IC, TB, PD) also have two edge types with an odd count, so none of those can separately make a torus, but if you combine all three, the odd numbers pair up and a torus is now possible!

The 4th expansion is the first one with all edge counts being even, and there are at least two ways to make a 3x6 rectangle where all pairs of opposite sides have the same edge type (an unwrapped torus)!
