Hello.
I have played Chimera Station the first time and i have a question:
-i have the grappler-card (can move my own workers to the worker lounge with my workers that have red-claws).
-i have the zoning-board-card, where a worker take the building-bonus, that the players can see.

Now we are in the splicing-phase, my double-red-clawed worker go to the zoning board and move the worker, that was here in the worker lounge (got 1 food and 1 money). i choose the "take one alien home"-bonus of the map and i choose a double-red-clawed. repeat that (go to zoning board, move the worker before to the worker-zone, got 1 money and 1 food....)

So i can do this all the time in a endless loop. take money and food.
is that possible?

i have the german-version of the game, i dont know the english-labels.

rbest regards

We're coming up with some errata and updating the rulebook to close such loopholes.

It's fun to find big combos, but infinite combos is not good.

Probably zoning board will get "workers here cannot be displaced or recalled)

Thanks Seth --enjoying this game.

Would it be possible to post it with a version number so we can see what has been worked out thus far?

This is correct, but it was not the crux of the OP's question
