I just picked up IC for my my 13 year old (loved it!) and there was a brief argument about that constitutes a terminal. I think that a terminal is the last card in the main line, with or without plugs. I look at as the definition of a terminal of a train line, literally the end of the line. The contraption is called a main line, hence my interpretation. My son says that a terminal is any card that is plugged in to the contraption. So a plug would be a terminal. A contraption card plugged in to the main line would be a terminal. Perhaps even a power core could theoretically be a terminal by that definition.
So, which is it? Neither? Anyone know the scoop on this? Thanks a bunch!
