One question:
Bridges are expensive: they cost 25 points each. In this
diagram we've saved 22 points by connecting the two 11 pins,
but we had to buy three connectors and a bridge, for a total
cost of 28. The net score for this move is 17 ...

Should it be 25+3-(11*2) = 6 ?

Using bridge will also lose credit?

Thanks
