Is this correct... We each get 1 or 2 actions a round... until everyone passes then the generation is over... example..

1) I go 2 actions player B) goes 1 Action Player c) Goes 2 Actions. Back to me 2 Actions Player B) Etc etc...

Until EVERYONE passes at which time the "Generation" is over and we collect resources pass the first player marker etc?


Thanks in advance?

Correct.

Each "generation", or round, consists of an unlimited number of player turns where each player turn consists of one or two actions. Play proceeds around the table until all players have passed.

And... can Standard Projects, and Projects from your Player Boards (Like raise the Temp or place a Greenery tile) cane be used multiple times in a Generation.. but Cards can only be done once per generation.

Correct! Actions on blue cards are the only actions you can only do once per generation. Everything else is fair game to repeat as many times as you wish.

One gold tipped for asking this question beforehand and not reporting how lame or broken this game is after playing it incorrectly.

What about actions on corporations? I assume those are once per generation as well?

I am pretty sure only the UNMI is a once per generation ACTION. The rest of the corporations have ongoing EFFECTS. Or maybe I misunderstand.

Yes.
UNMI is the only corporation with an action on it.
In this context, it's noteworthy that Ecoline's 7 plants => greenery transformation isn't an action itself, it's a modification of the "Convert plants into greenery" action, which can be used any number of times during a generation.
The same thing applies to a few other corporations as well. They change a game rule, no matter how often it comes up.

Haha, great thread!
That explains why our 2 player game took over 20 generations and why we were running out of ressource markers so we had to use something to write our ressources down
