How it works
Each round six dice are rolled and players draft them, marking the corresponding intersection of number and color on their boards. They make make at most one choice per row. After five rounds, players execute the action phases, their type and order having been determined via the same process.
Phases include Hiring, Funding and Payday. Unlike other games, this last may not be a happy event for some players as it requires them to make sure each of their teams is funded, or they must lose teams. But the most important phase of all is Progress, during which, using their teams, players attempt to realize the inventions. But getting there is not easy. At the start of play no one knows exactly what the requirements will be. They are only discovered as new milestones are reached.
The player who manages to navigate these conflicting challenges most successfully, who has prepared best for every eventuality, and above all, who has timed events perfectly, will triumph.
