I just wanted to confirm that the income boost is based on the space tags of ALL of your opponents added together. It's not just the tags of a single opponent, right? We weren't 100% because all of the other red-bordered effects seemed to always target a single player.

Yes and yes It counts all opponents. And you are right, usually cards only affect one single opponent, but this really doesn't affect them, right?

Yikes! OK, this card is crazy good so we were a bit fearful we were doing it wrong. Thanks!

I agree that this card is very good. It is better with more players, of course. In a 5 player game, it could give something like 5 M€ production the first turn, depending on what the others are playing. On the other hand, it is a card that you cannot affect the outcome of. If your opponents do not build space projects, there is nothing you can do about it. That's why it is cheap. It's simply out of your hands.

For the solo game would it be ok to use the Toll Station for YOUR space tags?

Otherwise it has no effect ...

What we've been seeing is it showing up mid-game and giving out out 10+ bonus to money production. That's REALLY good.

Theme dictates the effects. Why would a toll station give money for your own space projects? There is another card doing exactly that, though: Satellites. In solo, some cards will be useless (unless you have interesting combos). That's part of the challenge, both to identify them and to have a backup plan when card draws don't go your way.

Yes, 10M€ production is really good on the other hand, by mid-game, will 10M€ per turn be worth it, instead of playing some other project?

Well, any good giant space corporation would seize the opportunity to initiate a toll on their own workers as they work on the space projects they've started. Double dipping ...

Especially when they're the only paying corporation on the planet!
