When do the buildings score and when can you buy points? A player tonight had 60 coin and the Wealth building so got 12 pts. Then got 6 more when he bought pts at the end of the turn. The little we looked up implied that buildings are scored first and then you can buy pts. Is this correct?

For capital buildings like Wealth that provide only VP, the VP is awarded once at the end of the game during endgame scoring, which occurs after Phase 5 of turn 8. Thus the player would have to spend money to buy VP before determining how many VP his Wealth building awarded.

Well, I guess I should read the Capital Building appendix. For Wealth, it specifically says you score the building before buying VP. Silly me.
