It was expected of me that I gave up my thoughts. At one point their thoughts invaded my mind and I could feel how it reflcted on my behaviour towards others. I didn't agree with myself anymore, so I started hating everybody else.

I didn't know where I was... it was dark, it was cold. I could hear a very faint breathing though, so I started seeking my way through the darkness with just my hands. I would feel sticky things on the walls and I didn't dare touching the ground.

This suggestion is meant to indicate that you can at times occupy more spaces than you actually require, so that the opponent may not access those resources and thus must use more expensive if he/she doesn't want to loose that card.

I haven't got the game with me, but I'm pretty sure it says somewhere in the rules that resources are not limited and that you may use other tokens to complement the missing ones.

I'm pretty sure (95% ) that they are unlimited and in the rules somewhere... you misunderstand what it means by "blocking"... not blocking by buying them all up... but bocking by not leaving them any room to put any workers since there is a limited number of workers that can be deployed each round to each of the resource mines

That refers to the player being unable to place workers on wood. You cover all seven spots on wood, or with three players being second player on wood.

Edit: Missed it by that much.

Page 6, on the collection of resources:

"The resources are not limited. If a resource is exhausted, use a substitute material (e.g. matches for wood)."

The passage you're quoting is merely suggesting that you can send enough workers to the forest that there won't be room there for another player.

EDIT: In fourth, but I was the one who stopped to fetch the rulebook. I'm claiming victory, guys.

Page 6 (5 of pdf) look by the gold picture/example. "The resources are not limited. If a resource is exhausted, use a substitute material (e.g. matches for wood).

edit: dang. honey badgered. ninja

edit2: I pulled the PDF and would have been quicker if it let me cut and paste. I think I still lose.

ps: quick scan of this rules sub-forum finds at least one other thread on this that does confirm unlimited

Do the resources run out?

Oops! Sorry for being ignorant - first timer at this forum.

Thanks for all of your corrections! Can't believe that I missed part of page 6 in the rules.

The person who taught me the game said that we may not use substitutes for resources like I was planning to, so I've been playing the game all this time using limited resources.

People just need to quote the post they responded to. The OP is new, but what was everyone else's reason? They are forum experts.

Actually, thanks to the OP using a descriptive thread title, any future readers will know what the responses are addressing.
