In times of strength, prepare for times of weakness.
The starting bonuses on the bottom of the Corporate Sponsors cards seemed straightforward until I got to the "from any board" part. Since this is a starting bonus, won't the players be getting the resources just from the main board? What other boards could you get resources from at the beginning of the game?
I had to go look at the cards, but I can see where the confusion might come from. Some of the Corporate Sponsor cards allow you to take a resource from the board. Each resource is found at two different stations so you are allowed to take the resource from the station of your choice. The card reads: "From the board of your choice" The two parts of the statement are on different lines, but I suppose if you changed the order, it may help with any confusion "Of your choice, from the board."
To clarify, there is only one board and you are taking a resource from one of the related stations (of your choice).
Hope that helps!
