Hi guys, does Thorgate allow you to get the $3 discount on space mirrors (blue card) when you activate it's ability ($7 = raise 1 energy). I know you get the discount when first laying down the card, because of the energy tag. but does that tag also effect this blue cards action that can be taken every generation?

thanks


Very cool that after 10 plays (8 solo) this is the first time for this card combo...love the game, already a 9 in my BGG rating system.

Take care

I would say no.

Thorgate says "when playing a power card" which, to me, implies playing it out for the first time, not activating a card's ability. The rulebook (which, in general, I found to be fairly poor)does distinguish actions between "playing a card" and "activating a blue card's ability".

Agreed. Playing a card is different from using an action on a previously played card.
