So we were playing with the water features today and found a potential infinite loop with the Wishing Well and two other buildings. With Spare Parts Storage and Trader you could potentially sell sets of resources, buy the same sets back with gold and repeat forever. Normally there would be no advantage, but with the Wishing Well, all the spent gold adds points. Does anyone know of a rule that would prevent this exploit? Otherwise

Are you playing with the errata for both Spare Parts Storage and Trader? Those are the two that are involved in the infinite loop that was discovered right after release.

Note that there are several unofficial ways to address this as well. You can read through that initial thread to see other thoughts...
