After reading the rules and watching a few video reviews I have two questions:

1) Under rule 1.2 "Energy Supply" the first paragraph states that any region with any tech resources consumes one; return the resource cube to the general supply. How does a region go about obtaining a resource cube in the first place? Is this referring to the pre-printed tech cubes (2) listed on the project proposal spot of the region?

2) Does the CEP market always rise and fall when a CEP is added to or taken from or only when a player specifically sells and buys?

Thanks,
John

1) During the event of the supply phase, if a disaster occurs (350ppm or higher) players that haven't built a plant in that region have to donate a cube.

2) The price ALWAYS goes down when you sell to the market. The price goes UP when you have to refill the market... not always when someone buys.

Sells = down.
Refill = up.

No other time right?

Thanks Bob.

That's correct, but realize that any time CEPs come onto the board for any reason, they come from the market. The only time CEPs come from the bank is to refill the market. All paid CEPs go to the bank, all sold CEPs go the market.

Got it.

Paid in this sense is generic and doesn't necessarily apply to sell i.e. the specific action that makes the market go down correct? That is while several circumstances may cause CEPs to go into the market, the only way it goes down is if someone specifically sells to the market, right?

Thanks.

right, if you SELL CEPs they go to the market. (and the price goes down)

if you PAY them (to install a project, for example) they go to the bank.

Makes sense now.

Thanks!

What if you run out of CEPs in the bank and have to do a refill?

Yes. The increase of the price happens when the market is exhausted.
