Default What do you do, if the turning key does not fit?

There are situations, where I cannot place the turning key, because there is another car in the way.

The most common one is, when the cars run past each other and everyone tries to turn around.

Do you just remove the other car and try to place it back where it was before, or is there a better way?

That, put the key under the other car (still tricky, but I think it minimizes disruption) or try to hold the key above the obstacle and follow it as best possible. I've seen this happen several times, and I don't think I've found an elegant solution yet.

We just hover it overhead and do our best to be accurate and honest. The game was never intended to be hyper-precise, anyway. The whole reason the slight turn exists is to allow for shaky hands and to reduce stress over the inevitable accidental bumps and nudges.

I made a “half” turning key that comes in handy. It doesn’t cover every tight maneuver circumstance but I do use it in almost every game.
