Trying to figure this out. You have two ways to add crystals to "your pool" - via your passive Data Extraction (default) skill and the Harvester building.

But if you're playing a beginner game, you only have your default skill, so you don't have anything to spend the crystals on. According to the FAQ, the crystals don't score

So what's the point? What am I missing?

Hi -- the default Pilgrim skill says (paraphrasing): Discard one Crystal from Pool. Score 1 VP for every remaining Crystal in Pool.

So, if you have 6 crystals in pool when you use it, you discard one and score 5 points.

If you use structures to flood that pool, you can earn mega points.

Yep, that's what it says. I'm an idiot and for some reason thought Data Extraction was the default skill, because it was on top of the stack.

A+ for my reading skills!
