On my last game, I played Thorgate, and got thoose cards:

-Standard Technology: -3M€ on global projects, taking the increse of energy production to 5m€
-Physics complex: Pay 6 energy to place a science ressource on a card givin 2VP per ressource
-Can'ts remember the name: Transform as muche energy as wanted to M€
-Equatorial Magnetizer: Decrease energy production by 1 to increase TR by 1


I lost by 4 VP, but I lost with a pleasing M€/VP frenzy machine.

I've done the thorgate+standard technology+equatorial magnetizer before and it is quote nice. I think you may have been better off letting your extra energy become heat. Paying 5 to earn 1 income seems like a not so great ROI and the heat would get you some tr points and income.

Really? That seems pretty good to me considering that it is also a VP.

I don't think he is talking about TR. He means using energy as money via the project card (I forget its name), while energy production costs 5 (via standard action power plant + Thorgate + standard technology).

What it is good for is playing certain cards early that you have almost enough MC for.

Well he mentioned that he had played that particular combo before which included the equatorial magnetizer. And with that combo you're not paying the five bucks to increase your energy production just so you can spend that energy with the card that lets you convert energy to money... you're spending five bucks to increase your power production to use equatorial magnetizer to increase your TR.

Hmm yes, right you are. So in that case it actually does come out as TR. I didn't think that one all the way through shake

Tharsis Republic, Immigrant City, Standard Technology, Mars Rover, Pets, Martian Rails. That's a nice combo.
