It's when you score



and use it's agenda to score another Astroscript, which then helps you score another.

Ideally with the use of San San grid

Can the hosted agenda counter be only used once?

The train part comes from the first astro allowing you to score the second astro, which allows you to score the third astro, which allows you to score any other agenda and win. It's like train cars which link together!

Yes, you spend it once, and then it's gone.

Imaginge if it would not, i.e. recurring surprise . Now THAT would have been game breakingly OP. People would dream of an APP that merely allowed for one advancement

The jets on the back of the locomotive are what make it for me.

I used to play with that toy as a kid. I distinctly remember an uncle asking why that train had rocket engines on the back. I was baffled. Why WOULDN'T a train have rocket engines on the back; they're awesome! The question simply didn't compute to my seven year old self.

Bringing this back around, I think the symbol of chaining APPs as a train with rocket engines, that can only hurtle over the finish line or derail horribly, is pretty appropriate.
