  • a 4th click is a magic number for Corps


  • reasonably expensive
  • very high in influence


  • now what should that extra click be used on?
  • since you invested 4 credits and a card to begin with, don't use it to draw cards or get credits (very new players tend to do that from time to time)
  • out of all Corp actions, advancing agendas is the most likely
  • this allows you to score 3 difficult agendas out of hand (such as ABT, Project Vitruvius, AstroScript Pilot Program and Project Beale
  • also allows to score 4 difficult agendas on the table (ie, installed a previous turn, but innocently not advanced yet)
  • has a very sweet synergy with Melange Mining Corp. as it cost exactly 7 credits with Biotic Labor to score a 3 difficult agenda out of hand. So you can alternate between mining and scoring without needing an extra agenda server or exposing your agendas to be accessed by the runner
  • having some counters (or even 1) on Project Vitruvius supports this theme nicely - to recur a Biotic Labor
(All That Remains era)

You can click for 1. Hence, 1 click is worth 1. This card lets you get 1 click for 4. This card lets you waste 3 on nothing. It is not a good card, and you should not put it in any deck.

I would really recommend looking at cards such as Hedge Fund, Sweeps Week, or even Green Level Clearance if you want economy options, or cards like Efficiency Committee if you want extra clicks. At least Efficiency Committee also grants you agenda points.

This comment seems to not understand that this is not an Econ card. And they may not know the benefits of scoring out of hand... also they're counting the clicks wrong and likely have not used the card before reviewing. —
What's humor? —
What humour isn't is something you should use to mislead the new people who come to this site to try and make heads or tales of the game. It's fine so long as Ber follows ZenCadenza around, though. —
Fabulous Knight is right. We might get the joke but someone who only picked up the core set this morning might not. Joke reviews are fine as a gag at the bottom of a page after other legit reviews but up voting them too much runs the risk of leading new players astray. —
