  • agents can be moved to employee, patents and syndication


May get points on:

  • companies on barrier
  • problem solve idea chits
  • agent in the splay (future shoks)

How to pay

      • if not come from utility, can patent, 0,1 or 2 of the color(s)
      • else, discard
    • think tank make color pair viable for commercialization and keep hability
  7. commercialize (must have syndicated the idea, idea must be viable)
    • viable (or)
      • colors is in the splay (no payment)
