Just played a game with 3 builders, each with 3 secret molecules to build. The game is impossible to win with only 7 guess tokens as the guess tokens are removed from the game as they are used.

We assumed you get both a hint token and a guess token after building the correct molecule, but would be nice to have an official ruling.

Re: Impossible to win, lack of guess tokens
There are not so much possibilities. It s possible but you must think
At eliminate the card allready guess and list the other possibilities with the hint in the rule (number of c of n of o, 1 =, ...


We earn one clue but no guess
One guess is for all team so synchronize

Ahh, okay. Thanks for the explanation. That was not how we interpreted the rules, but that makes a lot more sense. So instead of working on one molecule at a time, you really want to get all 3 correct before making the guess.

Great feedback and thanks for posting. Yes, you want to use a guess token when you think that many of your builders are correct, not just one. When you use the guess token, the knower will signal "yes" or "no" to each individual builder. And then your whole team is much closer to winning, AND you receive 1 clue token back for EACH builder that is correct. So if all three builders are correct when you submit the guess token, the knower will flip all three secret molecule cards for each player that was correct, AND THEN put 3 clue tokens back into the pile of available clue tokens. Hope that helps!

Thanks both of you! This clears it up nicely.
