Hey all.
One of my favorite aspects of the first Manhattan Project were the specialized workers that could do different things.
Unless I'm missing something, there are no different "classes" of workers in Energy Empire. Is that really so?

Correct - all workers are the same. You also have energy that must be used to place workers in locations where players have already placed their workers.

Added: I still find this worker placement interesting. You must always use one meeple when placing on the board along with enough energy so that you have one more than the the player with the most in that spot...you have to balance this with the buildings you've built which can be powered by any combination of meeples and/or energy.

The Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight will use different types of workers if I recall correctly.

In a way there are two types of workers: "Workers" which come with different art, but have the same function, and "Energy" which are gained and used slightly differently. However, there are not scientists and engineers like in the original TMP
