A player's factory.

Everything is connected right in this picture.
You can build everywhere in your factory hall, which consists of 77 spaces. The black circle in the space in the middle is a pillar in the middle of the factory.
The 4 different sources (the yellow, red, blue and brown supply reservoirs) supply the input of machines. Direct or through connectors.
The output of machines supplies other machines or leads to an output reservoir (grey) or endproduct reservoir (black).

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Here you see the "Maxi Mixer".
This machine needs 2 Yellow and 2 Red input and produces 1 Blue output.
In the black circle you see that the total profit over the lifetime of this machine is 9,-.
The "Packo-1000" produces an endproduct (black output pipe).
The income by this machine is high (12,-) but you cannot 'upgrade' the endproduct anymore, so it can only be the end of a production chain.
Each machine has its pro's and contra's.
The "Multiplier" multiplies 1 Yellow input and can be easy (cheap) to connect in a production chain.
But it cannot connect to many machines and the profit is only 4,-.
Often the "Beta Boiler" is not easy to construct in your factory.
But it can make sophisticated production chains to make high value products.
This old machine needs 3 Blue and 2 Red to produce 2 Blue.
The colors don't indicate precise products but indicate which types of products the machine can handle or produces.
:)
Often the reason for building this 'sophisticated' machine is doubted,
but it can be usefull.

--------------------------------------------------------------------


Combine 2 games to play with 4 up to 8 players.
Or 3 games for 9-12 players.
The number of players is 'unlimited' as long as everyone can reach the middle of the table well!

Box (and rulebooks) in 4 languages:

5th player board

Download here the 2 halves of a 5th board to play with 5 players.
Right-click on a half and choose "save destination". Save it (file name "left.jpg" or "right.jpg").
Open it in your pictures program and print it (on DIN-4 paper).
It should have the right size automaticcally.
(Do not right-click and choose "print picture" because that will print the small icoon hereunder.
And do not open the link and right-click there and choose "print picture" there, because then it will print bigger.
You can only do that if you scale up dpi from 72 to 300.)

right half
With this fifth board you can play with 5 players. That works well :-) but you have to adjust a bit:
1. Find an extra player color to place on the money track.
2. There are no 3 output reservoirs for the fifth player. Share these or use endproduct reservoirs up-side-down as soon as it is needed.
3. It can happen that you get a machine with an extra supply reservoir which is not in the common stock anymore.
Then you don't get an extra reservoir.
4. Play 9 rounds instead of 10 (or add in the 10th round 2 machines which were not taken in earlier rounds).

Factory Fun solitaire

The rules for trying the game as solitaire game are precise the same as with 2-4 players.
So you turn only 1 machine each game round (1 player) and try to build it in your factory. If you choose not to build it in, then you don't pay 5,- , because you are the 'last' player.
I often try this way to reach a high score, and that gives always interesting situations. It's important to hold many options for later turns open. You can reach high scores playing it solitaire.

Factory Fun puzzle

Rules:
I draw 10 machines random.
Try to fit the machines in your factory in the most profitable way.
The most profitable factory you calculate by:
The income on the placed machine tiles plus the bonus at the end (5,- times the connected input numbers) minus the number of connectors and reservoirs you've built at the end.
(A T-split connector costs 1,-. A tile with 2 connectors crossing each other costs 1,- per connector so 2,- in total.)
You don't have to place all machines.
You have 1 supply reservoir of each color, 3 product reservoirs and unlimited endproduct reservoirs.
If there is the "+" sign with the reservoir picture on a placed machine, then you get this reservoir extra. In case of the question mark you can choose the extra supply reservoir.
Send a picture with your solution (a photo or any other picture) to info@cwali.nl. Write your score in the email
In case of more highest solution, the prize goes to the first sender.

Adjustment/clearification of Factory Fun rulebook

Output of different machines you can combine and lead to one output reservoir if it is all one product color,
but end-products you can not combine and lead to the same end-product reservoir.
