I want to clarify the Bomb Actions. Can I take as many of these on my turn as I want? It appears the rules allow this but I wanted to clarify. Someone in our game was able to get enough workers to drop 2 bombs and load both of them in the same turn and end the game just like that. Kind of an abrupt ending to a great game. It was a 5-player game so he only needed 45 points and he had the 8 point implosion test token.

Yep, the rules state you can take as many bomb actions as you want during your turn as long as you have enough workers and resources to produce them.

I don't have the rules in front of me, but you can do as many bomb actions as you want, IIRC.

Everything is relative to perception, and your perception is limited.

Above are correct. That sounds like outstanding planning to me. This game can have abrupt endings, but it is, in my experience, always fairly close. Can't tell you how many times I have been one worker, or resource short of winning, when someone downstream has what they need to win. Always the bridesmaid!

Yes this all most free form nature player turn that TMP allows is one of its beauties, but note that plays like that can happen but i do not think they will happen much.
It will take some precise planning to pull them off and is unsatisfying as this kind of ending may be for the other players it just shows you how a well played game can pay off for a player.

Hats off to the winner!

Thanks to all the responses. I guess we need to pay better attention to what others are doing.

Absolutely. Not a game where you can play multiplayer solitaire and expect to win.

Double bomb for the win just the other night. It pays to play quiet. !
