Hi, I enjoyed watching the replay of your game. Both links are fine, though it's nice to see the summary: https://boardgamearena.com/table?table=473497495. If you want to add new games, it's OK to edit your post if I haven't updated the scores (leave your original post in). If I've updated the scores, it's better to make a new post.

First time I do this challenge :-)
Thank you for trying the challenge, and doing the higher level at your first attempt. I hope you enjoyed it.

E.g., started the turn with power 0/1/2, converted 1pw->1c, up tech lv2 to lv3 (+3pw) ... <expected another prompt> but the turn ended immediately and the automa played.
Hi. This has now been implemented. I played a game with that option and it worked OK.

jgpaladin 177 - Automa 129
https://boardgamearena.com/11/gaiaproje ... =476193004

Switched things up, better result, not really sure why. I didn't ever even build my PI, which seems wrong for the Terrans but apparently it's not the end-all...

AC on turn 2, moved up science twice before shifting to GP and Nav. Felt coin-starved most of the game. Only 24pts in tech (maxed GP and Nav.)

It's a good score. Re coin starved: I feel opening Academy with Terrans need steps up economy (or a lot of charge) to make up for the lost benefits of the resources generated by the PI.

Score lists updated. Just over a week of the challenge is left.

CanBeSarcastic 194 - Ultoma 164: https://boardgamearena.com/table?table=478597145
RL + 4m opening. Academy second round. Got Adv Tech on top of Nav in the 4th.
Upgraded to second academy on existing fed.. ran out of power for a third fed. Too spaced out. I had way more than enough power for third fed. Should have planned better to break 200.

200+ is definitely on, given also you were very short of credits. No PI or 2 tokens round booster make it more difficult to connect widespread planets. Thank you for posting an Ultoma game.
