Each company track has one or two capital calls. Whenever you move one of your track marker from one space to the next and cross a capital call in the process, you must immediately pay the depicted number of pounds to the bank. Otherwise, your track marker must remain on the space before the capital call. If you reach the last space of a track, your track marker remains there for the rest of the game.

If you use a reward that allows you to move forward on a specific track and you cannot use it completely (because of a capital call which you cannot pay or the end of the track), move your marker as far as possible (if at all) and forfeit the rest.

Each company track has 2 special spaces. As soon as you reach or pass such a special space with your track marker, you immediately receive from the bank the number of pounds depicted above the special space (1 or 2).

Important: Each player that reaches or passes a special space receives the depicted amount. However, when he reaches or passes it, all players who already reached or passed that space before that player also receive the depicted amount from the bank yet again.



Example: Blue moves 2 spaces forward on the track and passes the first special space. For this, he immediately receives 1 pound from the bank. Since Green and Yellow already have reached that special space before Blue, they also receive 1 pound each from the bank yet again.

As soon as you reach or pass a special space, you also unlock its special track bonus. 'I his special track bonus will take effect from your next turn onward (i.e. if you unlock it in the middle of an action, you cannot use this bonus while still carrying out that action).

There are 2 types of special track bonuses: Permanent bonuses and extra bonus spaces. Permanent bonuses can only be found on tracks A and B, while the extra bonus spaces can be found on tracks C and D. If you have unlocked a permanent bonus, you may use it each time you perform an action for which the bonus is relevant. Extra bonus spaces work exactly like the bonus spaces on the game board (i.e. you use them with the "Place 1 bonus marker" action).

Each track has 2 special track bonuses. 'The second special track bonus of any company track usually is an improved version of the first one.

Important: If you have managed to unlock the second special track bonus of a company track, you are entitled to EITHER use that second OR its first special track bonus, but you may never use both. In the case of the permanent bonuses this means: 'I he first and second special track bonuses of a track are never cumulative. In the case of the extra bonus spaces this means: Each round you may only use one of the bonus spaces of that track. So, if one of your bonus markers is already on one of the two bonus spaces, you are not allowed to place a second marker onto the other.
