We misinterpreted the Awards mechanic, but I think we may have discovered an interesting variant.

1. All awards may be purchased.
2. Each player is limited to purchasing three different awards.
3. The first player to purchase an award pays 8 mega credits and places 1 cube on the award.
4. If another player wants to purchase an award that has already been purchased; the second player pays 14 mega credits, and the third player pays 20.
5. At the end of the game, for a player to be eligible to receive any VP for an award, they must have a cube on that award.

For example, if the blue player has the most heat (12), and green has the second most (10), but blue did not purchase the Thermalist while green and red players did, then green would be awarded 5 VP, and red would earn 2 VP.

I think 8 credits is too cheap for a 1 in 2, 3, or 4 (depending on player count) chance in earning 5VP. It would be a mistake not to try and buy these up immediately at that price.

Could be. We've tended to ignore them until later in the game, then end up buying one or two that look like you can win.

May not be a great variant, and we're playing by the correct rules now. Thought it might be interesting to discuss.
