Just started playing this game and we encountered problem with the evolution cards. It was a 2-player game. In Turn 0, after the initial exploration, the rules say that we fill out the evolution card offer. Obviously this means that there will be one card with orange/red crises on top of the draw deck. The rules also state that you ignore the balance of the archipelago in the first round, which is what we did. What if there is a red crisis though? Do we resolve that during the evolution card purchase phase? Skip it again? During subsequent rounds, we didn't always buy a card or remove one from the offer. Does that mean that we have to resolve the same crises again even if they are red (during phase 6)?
I hope some kind soul will be able to help us. Thanks!
Hi! The red crisis, you resolve it when you REVEAL a card; if the card was already there, when you enter phase 6, you ignore it. Concerning the 5 initial cards, if the back of the 6th card has a red crisis, you can safely ignore it, as it's in round #0. It's on the same premises that you ignore phase 4 during round #1.
