We are playing a game Right Now! And I need to know how my corporation works. One of my opponents just played a green card with a Jovian tag, does that make my money production go up?

I believe the wording says any time the tag is put into play, not specifying by whom, which means any player.

No, it only works after it is in play, that is for cards played afterwards.

The jovian says works on ANY, so any player triggers it.

Also the Jovian symbol has a red outline, red outline is iconography for any player in this game.

Finished the game yesterday and it was awesome. All three of us loved it and can't wait to play again. Scores were 92-67-61.

What is a common score for a 3-player game?

Here's a thread with a few statistics:
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1654557/help-needed-lets-co...

For games with the corporate era, 87-79-70 would be average
The sample size for standard games is too small to be reliable though

Just thought of another issue that came up in the game but we didn't want to slow down so we all just agreed to play it a certain way, which was obviously wrong.

There are a few hexes with bold text and in the rule book it mentioned that there is 3 reserved spots. At the time, I couldn't figure out what the 3 spots were because there was more than three with bold text. We decided to not be able to place on any of these bolded locations.

As I'm writing this, I believe that the three reserved locations might actually have been the two that are off the planet and the one for noctis city(I think that's what it's called). Is this correct, and does that imply that we were able to place tiles on the bolded hexes.

And if this is correct, and all four of those bolded locations were covered, what do you do if you get that one card that asks you to place a tile on one of those four locations?

Thanks in advance!

That's how we play it. Just three locations that can't be used until the requisite card comes up. All of the others are up for grabs, emboldened or not.

Yes, your second guess is right. There are actually five bolded locations on the Mars map: Noctis City and four mountainous spots. Noctis City is reserved; the other spots are legal targets for the "Lava Flows" event. If all four of those spots are covered, then Lava Flows may not be played.
