This phase 1 event card reads "All patents require +1 $ this turn."
Does this mean:
1. Anyone claiming a patent must pay $1 to claim it?
2. Anyone claiming a patent needs one more $ on the card(s) used to advance the technology and claim a patent?
3. Something else?
Sorry it took so long to answer this question! It means that the luminary (or luminaries) you use to advance in technology must have an additional $1 to claim the patent as well.
