So we all know that many Euro games contain a mechanism wherein one basic resource is developed/converted into another to attain something. This list is our top 10 unique implementations of this mechanism.

Every player has a farm to add basic resources to the board, and dependent on factories that are built, those can be developed into more refined goods - but these goods branch off into finished ones and ones that can be even refined further. But be careful! You need certain goods that may be less 'refined' dependent on the requests of the distinguished guests as the game progresses. Also the idea of 'piggy backing' some of your items when someone else builds a building is clever.

Usually games allow you to add resources to enhance what you have - not this one! What you have is what you have permanently - but WHERE you have it, and how you can 'burn' one up to push yourself ahead is tantalizing. You may have a resource in your 'pool' that in not available until you use other resources you have active to bring it into being, just to spend it again back into the pool...a rotation of resources that is akin (sort of) to the power cycles in Gaia.

Build your city as you wish - but if you get some resources along the way you better also build a factory that goes along with it!

Take your huts (basically a resource) to expand your influence on the islands and thus claim resources there so that you can piece together your ceremony space on your own board!

There are so many ways of working with resources in this game - so many ways of accomplishing the same thing that your paths are many - but getting basic resources and using spaces on your own player board to make them into refined goods makes everything you WILL want to do much easier.

Your power tokens can be converted into SO MANY things - if you use them carefully as they spin round and round on your board...

You have to 'plant' resources on a wheel - and when your space is filled up your harvest awaits!

Wood can become...well... anything! It's not really 'conversion' per se, but without it you can't get any of the things you do!

Little ships can become bigger ships...which can become gargantuan ships! Then you may have to spend them all!

Yes you can get weapons many different ways, but the power is with the Blacksmith who can forge them for you as long as you provide the wood to keep the flames hot!
