Is the following allowed?
Step 1: Itar start a Gaia Project, moving 6 power to the Gaia area.
Step 2: They then take 4 out again to take a technology tile.
- what happens to the 2 power left?
- if they are at higher levels of Gaiaforming, and have Gaiaformers available, can they repeat the process (move 2 more in, take 4 out)?
On the last round, this would let them take two technology tiles without a penalty, as the actual Gaiaforming will never happen anyway.
The rules say "During the Gaia phase, you can discard 4 power tokens ........".
So you cannot do Step 2 until the next turn.
