I played this at BGG.CON in the Hot Games room. There was some discussion among the players as to what is the rule regarding the fuel market adjustments that take place at the end of each round.

Which of the following is correct?

Procedure A:
--- Move fuel from slot 3 to slot 2 (starting with coal, followed by gas, oil and uranium).
--- Move fuel from slot 4 to slot 3 in the same order.
--- If there are still openings in slot 2, fill them from the cards in slot 3. Then fill slot 3 from what's left in slot 4.
--- Draw cards to fill slot 4, then if needed move cards from slot 4 to slot 3.
--- Repeat the previous step until the market is full.

Procedure B:
--- Start by moving fuel from slot 4 to fill slot 3.
--- THEN fill in slot 2 from cards in slot 3.
--- Draw cards to fill slot 4, then repeat the above as needed (first 4--> 3, then 3--> 2)

Procedure C:
--- Something different?

I was told this was a factor in the decision to pull the game from the Hot Games room on Friday morning, replacing it with Clank.

I believe that Procedure A is the way we played.

A variant of Procedure A is really correct:

--- Move fuel from slot 3 to slot 2 (starting with coal, followed by gas, oil and uranium).
--- If there are still openings in slot 2, fill them from the cards in slot 4 in the same order.
--- Move fuel from what's left in slot 4 to slot 3 in the same order.
--- Draw cards to fill empty slots beginning in the lowest column (so if really necessary slot 2, then slot 3 finally slot 4)
