The player board keeps track of your current resources and production. Resource cubes are placed in their respective boxes, and player markers are used on the production tracks.
1. PHASES - A brief description of the phases.
2. PRODUCTION TRACKS - When you gain production of a resource, move the corresponding cube on its track. Add a second cube to the right column if needed. There are four types of production: (a.) MC, (b.) card, (c.) heat, and (d.) plant. The production tracks show how much of each resource you will gain during the production phase.
Example: If you gain two heat production on the first turn, move your player cube on the heat production track from 0 to 2.
3. RESOURCES - Whenever you gain (a.) MC, (b.) heat, or (c.) plants, place the copper, silver, and gold cubes into the section corresponding to the resource gained. The copper cubes are worth 1, the silver 5, and the gold 10.
Example: If you produce 6 plants, place 1 copper cube and 1 silver cube into the green resource section to the right of the plant production track on your player board.
4. CAPABILITIES - When you gain (a.) steel or (b.) titanium capabilities, move the corresponding cube on its track. Add a second cube to the right column if needed.
5. STANDARD ACTIONS - During the action phase, players may perform as many of these actions as they want, any number of times.
Reminder: All resources are either tracked on the player board or on a card if it is a special resource. Use the copper, silver, and gold cubes to track the number of each resource you have. The copper cubes are worth 1, the silver 5, and the gold 10.
NOTE: Some production cards increase their production when you have more of a specific tag. You’ll need to update your player mat every time you play that tag.
NOTE: You will always be able to calculate your current production and capabilities by looking at your cards in play. The player board is just more convenient.
