Enjoyable show

Good show. I wish there were more podcasts that spend the whole show talking about a game. However, I did did myself yelling at my phone when they had some rule errors in Terraforming Mars. They mentioned you did not have to subtract energy production to play the card if you don’t have it. This is incorrect.

Effects that remove your own resources are mandatory, while effects that remove resources from any player (marked by a red border around the resource icon) are voluntary and may be performed in full, in part or not at all. Only one player or card may be targeted at a time with the effects of a card. Removing production is always mandatory.
