I'm not sure it's entirely-clear how the Continuous Effect Techs work, with regard to if/when you have to keep your cubes on them. Based on what I've been able to dig up, it seems like there's some conflicting information.
From the Rule Book (page 10) wrote:
Red = This has been errata'd/removed via the FAQ, see below:
• Cubes placed on technologies that have not been
completed, or that have been activated and then partially
depleted due to a “cube restoration” effect (see
“Cube Restoration” description in the list of Advanced
Technologies and ruins effects), may be left on the
technologies or put back into the bag: it’s up to the
player to decide what to do for each of these cubes.
• Cubes placed on continuous technology (see CONTINUOUS
EFFECTS) may be left on the technologies
or put back into the bag: it’s up to the player to decide
what to do for each of these cubes
From the FAQ wrote:
Page 10: RESET: paragraph 4 is eliminated (i.e. the one above in RED)
This means that during Reset, only the cubes on activation
spaces of technologies with continuous effects can be left
on the technology. All other cubes must be put back
into the bag.
From the Rule Book (Page 14) (book marks this in red!) wrote:
IMPORTANT: During Reset, the cubes placed on the
Advanced Technologies with continuous effect are not
placed back into the bag.
It seems like the Page 10 Rule Book Continuous-Effect choice (i.e. the word "may") might be a leftover from when you could also choose to leave cubes on any
uncompleted tech (i.e. the red section, from the quote). So it's possible that the choice to still leave them, as noted in the FAQ, still only applies to UNCOMPLETED Continuous-Effect Techs.
The Page 14 Rule Book clarification, however, seems very clear that cubes placed on Continuous-Effect Techs are NOT put back into the bag (no matter the circumstance?). Could it be that this applies ONLY
to COMPLETED Continuous Effect Techs?The questions are pretty straightforward:
1) During Reset, can you choose
whether to remove cubes from an UNCOMPLETED Continuous-Effect Tech and put them back into the bag? If so, must you remove ALL of them? Or can you choose to remove some but leave others (for bag-manipulation purposes).
2) During Reset, can you choose
whether to remove cubes from a COMPLETED Continuous-Effect Tech and put them back into the bag? If so, must you remove ALL of them? Or can you choose to remove some but leave others (for bag-manipulation purposes).
3) When, IF EVER
you leave cubes on a Continuous Effect Technology, once they're put there?
