Hello All,


I have read somewhere that the rulebook is well-written. We do not have this impression in our group, as we often need to solve problems and cannot find the solutions back in the rulebook (but OK, I know how difficult it is to write a rulebook accessible to everyone).

For example: the factory tile. I do not have it just in front of me now, but if I remember well, the iconography shows something like +1tool/+1 production.
In the rulebook, only the fact that you increase your production by 1 unit in all buildings having teh same color of worker is mentioned. Nothing about the tool.

The way I understand it is: either take one tool OR increase your production by 1 unit in all buildings with the same color of worker.

Given that we already produce 3 tools at every production phase + the fact that this looks much less advantageous than producing one extra item in different buildings, I wonder whether this was well interpreted.

Anyway, there is nothing about the tool issue in the description of the different buildings in the annex sheet. (I had the same kind of comments concerning teh INstitute, but It has been explained in another post)

Some comments on this factory? Thanks in advance for your help.

The icon you identify as 'tool' is in fact the symbol for production buildings that produce building resources.

So the factory gives one extra building resource or sustenance per production building that has the same color of worker as the factory.

It does not increase tool production by the smithy.

Extra building resource OR (not and?) sustenance?

That's a linguistic thing Note the 'per production building'.
Every production building that produces building resources or sustenance (the 'or' here is because a building cannot produce both) gets one extra output.
