First attempt at creating a puzzle (so be gentle). Been loving these from the Kickstarter updates :)

I assume the goal is to create the maximum number of goods?

Edit: Also a question. For Cloning Facility, does it have to be an unused die that's "cloned"?

Hi Bruce!!

Yes, the goal of most puzzles is to make as many goods as possible.
No, you can copy any of your dice, used or unused.

Victor!!! What a great puzzle!!



Haha, you discovered one of our secret puzzle cards! (Cloning Facility). Thanks for including it in your puzzle. We'll talk about it more in an upcoming Kickstarter Update, but in short, it's a card that's not actually in the base game (but may show up in an expansion in the future), but it helps make really interesting and challenging puzzles.

Thanks for submitting your puzzle!!

So is there somewhere to submit the answer? Or do we submit it here in spoilers?

Ok, here's what I did. I think it's right.

Spoiler (click to reveal)

Use 3 die to generate 3 energy [1,2,4,3E]
use 1 die + 1 energy to create 1 good via Biolab [2,4,2E,1G]
use 4 die + 2E to create 1 G + 1 M via Fulfillment Center [2,2G, 1M]
Discard Lab + 1M to gain 6E via Incinerator [2,2G,6E]
Use Cloning Facility + 1E to change 2 die to 3 die [3, 2G, 5E]
Use 3 die to generate 4 energy [2G, 9E]
Use 6 Energy and Golem to create a 6 die [6, 2G, 3E]
Use 6 die on Nuclear Plant to gain 1G +1E [3G, 4E]
Use Battery Factory + 4E to create 1G [4G]
Total goods = 4

Nice Bruce! I believe that works!

Great puzzle, Victor. Really impressed with this one. There are a lot of pieces but great use of the cards.

You are not allowed to discard factories you have already built. You don’t need to, because the Laboratory gives you an extra card in hand as soon as you generate goods (max 1 per turn), in this case when you used the Biolab.

I know it was a lot of pieces. I thought I had it with one less card (Replicator instead of Golem+Nuclear Plant) but realized when I was about to post that the Replicator only targets cards in the Marketplace.... which I assume is not a zone within the puzzles that can be targeted. Loving the puzzles though - thanks for this!
