18EU ALPINE VARIANT by David G. D. Hecht
The only officially sanctioned (but still under development)
Alpine Variant, courtesy of the game designer and based on a
suggestion by Antero Kuusi.
A company that builds on an Alp has the option of placing one
of its tokens there at the moment it builds it (this is a one-time
good deal). The Alpine token is treated as a normal token in
all respects, but does not occupy a (non-existent) city circle,
nor does it block the route. No other company can place a
token there, even if the tile is upgraded.
Any route that the company with the token runs through the
tunnel gets a +10 bonus for each city or off-map area (not town)
on the route.
Note: The Alpine token does count in the red-to-red bonus.
