Hi

1. Can someone please explain how the 'Draft' of Companies/Inventors is supposed to take place?

2. We played a 2p game last night and simply selected an Inventor each (Maxim & Edison). However, the table of Player & Card Counts indicates 5 Inventors at every Player Count, which is confusing me! Does it simply mean that the 2p have the entire pool of 5 to initially chose from?

Thanks

The process is spelled out clearly in the rules: Pick a player. The player chooses a company, takes its inventor and preferred stock, distributes the regular shares as described in the rules, and places the company's markers as described in the rules. The choice passes to the left. Nothing in the rules even hints at reducing the number of companies available in the draft.

Yes, but dues that mean that after both players have one Inventor each, you stop drafting or carry on?

You stop. The rules say the process continues until each player has selected a company, not until all companies have been selected.
