Hi ! I just finished game 6 and I lost ..

I tried to win the game at the end going to the cloud port to achieve 3 VP plus 1 from an assistant. However, during my last 2 turns, I bumped myself out of the cloud port gaining the VPs.

With the bumped worker of mine and having 2 non placed minions, I used my bumped worker to go to the cloud port on my last turn of the game gaining another 4 VPs.

Was that a right move? Is is possible to bump yourself and use your bumped worker in the next round?

Thanks

Yes as long as you are using the workers, not minions.

Bumping your own worker is a perfectly valid tactic, and can be quite useful in certain situations.

Bumping yourself is a very efficient way to do lots of the same thing.

We had a player who would spam her production building like six turns in a row, take her workers back, then spam the building that used that resource as its cost six times in a row. She loved using the "bump yourself" mechanic to keep from wasting a turn taking workers back.

I would often do something similar with the Grandstand. I'd wait until I had all three objectives complete before going, so I could get three straight turns of using my workers and then still have a worker left at the end to do something else.

This is an interesting approach/ technique, that could be very useful and I'll take it into consideration for the rest of my games. Thanks Darren.
