All I meant was that it makes an average of two-thirds per hex over three hexes since (normally), yes, the first two cost 1 each but the third then costs 0. That's all I meant.I think it was Rob who used the 2/3 shorthand for minor road moves.

I will play it that way. It's best to clarify these things before thay actually happen, though, right?
Anyone else care to express an opinion on this?
