Events

Events or Encounters are random wager activities that occur throughout the game. They are indicated by a triangle icon Event-icon which is initially yellow and cycles through to red before it disappears. They can occur with both trains and steamships.

Some Encounters won't appear until you have achieved a certain level. Others seem to disappear once you reach a certain level. "The Tehine Tramps" is the only known encounter that changes in cost as you go up in levels. And, a few are in-game Ads that offer reward for viewing.

You trigger an encounter by clicking on the triangle. There is always a cost involved with an encounter. A list of the encounters, their wager cost and the reward/penalty is below.

Rankings

Subjective "Worth it?" Rankings are provided - these are merely an opinion which you might find useful. Some are marked "Never" however occasionally these can also be "Additional Tasks" in which case you should obviously do them. The rankings are as follows:

No Ranking What it means
4 Always If this comes up and you have the required resources, do it. The benefit far outweighs the risk of loss.
3 Yes This is pretty good and you'd usually take it. Only ignore if you are saving a resource for some reason
2 Maybe OK-ish. Your decision should be based on what resources you have or need.
1 Meh Not really worth it. If you are desperate for the potential reward then maybe, else no.
0 Never This is awful. Avoid at all costs.

Encounters

Entries marked as (B) are Boat Encounters. The remainder are Train encounters (obviously)

Items marked as "Task-icon" are special encounters that may only appear once or twice in the entire game, and only in combination with a specific Quest or Additional Task. If you don't have the funds at the time don't worry, as the encounter will reappear until you complete it.

Columns marked as "??" are Unknown require data entry Content-alert.

Arrow up
These encounters cost no game resources, costing only your time. Rather than button choices of "Help" or "No Thanks" you have a choice of "Watch" or "No Thanks." Clicking on the "Watch" button will subject you to a 15-45 second video commercial- usually advertising another game. Finishing the commercial will provide you a resource reward. Some encounters will provide a larger reward at higher levels. Stopping the video early or if internet problems develop will deny the reward. Either way no game resources are spent. (These encounters are in the IOS & Android versions of the game, other versions of the game are unknown).
