I wouldn't know. We •••Spoiler:  all died trying to get to the Pole! Froze to death about half an inch from it Might try again to see what I did wrong.

Hi, I just started the game yesterday and have been through a solid number of playthroughs.

The North Pole was by far my shortest route, about 42 days. Speaking of the North Pole, as someone previously asked before, is it possible to •••Spoiler:  make Fogg and Passepartout a couple? There have been other instances of subtext in regards to this, but on the North Pole route, it is totally possible for •••Spoiler:  Passepartout to explicitly declare his love for Fogg once and implicitly at least 3 times, and even confess his love to Fogg if the latter dies after the ship breaks down and before rescue comes.

Default No Market??!!

Hi, I couldn't see this question posted before...

Is the market only active / selectable when you actually have funds? I was playing yesterday, $0 left but with a ton of stuff to sell (worth $2k+). However, the Market icon did not appear until I received money from the bank.

This was unfortunate as I ended up wasting three days requesting/waiting for the money over a weekend.

Even worse, I then completed the game in 81 days.

I think you've been playing the sequel, around the world in 81 days

Not sure about the market. I know there was one town where the button just stayed greyed out and it wasn't a Sunday, I had enough cash and the tine of day was before noon so don't know why sometimes you cannot enter the market. I was even told some of my items were worth a lot here.

It's a bug, which happened to me on New York once. I waited for 4-5 days there thinking it is cuz of a reason like day being Sunday or something, but it stayed same, greyed out. I also had a rifle in my backpack which was valuable at New York. Couldn't sell it so needed to draw funds from bank for zeplin to London.

I think you can sell items without a market by clicking on your suitcase. You just can't buy items this way.

I guess it is very hard to finish the original trip in 80 days(London-->Paris-->Nice-->Rome--Athens-->Cairo-->Suez-->Bombay-->Calcutta-->Hong Kong-->Yokohama-->San Francisco-->New York-->London. If I manage to get to Suez in time, I will be lack of money to Calcutta. Calcutta and San Francisco chaos also costing a lot of time. Have anyone finish it?

I went London - Paris - Vienna - Budapest - Moscau (with side-trip to St. Petersburg) - Vladivostok - Yokohama - San Francisco - Albuquerque - New Orleans - New York - Porto Delgado - Lisbon - London. 76 days, though it was really touch-and-go in a couple of places. San Francisco wasn't so bad, since I just went to Albuquerque at once.

My feeling is, that beyond paying attention to lucrative items and chosing the itinerary where you can sell them, it is better not too waste too much money on expediting travel during the first 40 days. If you have a wait of 3-4 days, better spend it on drawing more money, even if it looks like you have enough. Because, inevitably, you'll run out of money down the road and will have to wait anyway. Also, a slightly roundabout route could be speedier, or not much slower and much cheaper than the direct one.

On my second trip, I'll try the North to South circumnavigation of the globe. This is truly a great adventure game, worthy of all the accolades bestowed on it.

Hi!

I just discovered this game two weeks ago and have spent many hours to play the game! So far I have succeeded the mission in four games and failed in two. I have not even travelled through Africa, missed some cities in Central Asia and South America! Great job, inkle!

One thing, though, I am little bit disappointed when noticing that encounters and events in a place are the same in all game. I was hoping for different encounters/events. Or am I missing something here?

I agree with previous observations in this thread that there should be extra routes to America and from West Coast to East Coast. Northern route from Russia to Alaska or travelling west instead of east would be lovely! If inkle is planning to release expansions, I'd love to buy them!
