Hi. Section 2.1.3 says that in order to construct a power plant, expertise is required in that energy source "equal to or higher than the number of tech resources required to build it." I assume this means if, for instance, a biomass plant requires 4 tech resources to be built, then my marker on the biomass expertise track must at least be in the box that has a '4' in it, if not farther along. Is this correct?

Thanks,
Ricky

Hi Ricky,
almost there, but instead of being in the space with the 4, you need to be in the 4th space.

The income is the value in the top of each space, and expertise is the number of spaces. If you notice you have 10 spaces to each track. that means that you can get 100% of expertise, but the income you receive is different to every field.

The crane symbol in each track is a reminder of the expertise you need, to build the lower tech power plant.

I hope this help.

If you were at BGG.CON this weekend....

We sold out by early Sunday.

CO2 ended up at #14 (I think) on the BGG.CON Geekbuzz.

Two copies of the game were played constantly in the hot games room for all 5 days of BGG.CON.

Thanks,

Nope. Just a Stronghold pre-order customer...

That is VERY good news, Vital! The buzz was great all weekend long.

A game such as CO2, which is "big" (both in depth of play and length) can't be much higher on the Geekbuzz than that, as many less players will be able to experience the game, versus a 20-30 minute light game. So, being #14 is... extraordinarily good!

And selling out all the copies that were flown in from Germany is not too shabby either...

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

As one of those buyers, and now with a couple of plays under my belt, I'm very happy to have this in the collection!
