When you've advanced your technology in the labs for advanced ingredients to get an advanced ingredient when you get 3 basic ingredients from a market action (breakthrough).

If you also have the Advanced Ingredient Importer, when you take a market action that has 3 basic ingredients, do you get 1 advanced ingredient (for the lab) or 2 advanced ingredients (for the lab and the importer).

Basically, does the lab effects trigger the Advanced Ingredient Importer effect, since you got an Advanced Ingredient as a direct result of the market action.

Good question (I think this is covered in the Rules FAQ which is part of the PnP, but I will give a full explanation here).

The Advanced Ingredient Importer skilled worker only provides a benefit when you take advanced ingredients from a market action space. In the situation you describe, you are not receiving the advanced ingredient from a market action space, you are receiving it from your breakthrough research, so you do not get a 2nd advanced ingredient from the Advanced Ingredient Importer.

However, I want to make sure you are reading the research lab correctly. The breakthough advanced ingredients space should say "..at least 3 ingredients". That means any 3 ingredients, not only basic ingredients. So, there are situations when both of those abilities can activate separately on the same market action. For instance, lets say you used a market action to take the spot that gives you 1 advanced ingredient and 2 malt. Now you get an advanced ingredient from your breakthrough research, AND you get an advanced ingredient from your Advanced Ingredient Importer.

Does that help?

Thanks for playing the PnP, and I hope you are enjoying it!
