I don't care for the two influence. I will play it in Weyland: Building A Better World. This is basically Beanstalk Royalties with an installation action. Install an Agenda and gain the credits you need to advance/protect it. Pretty nice!


Also good in HB:EtF, as you gain a credit for the installation part, too.

Seems like a decent economy card, but mostly good out of ETF. It really is just a Beanstalk.

$2 and 1 click = 3 action equivalents; get back net $2 and 1 limited click (install only). Not quite break even.  


Does not seem worth it to me in the typical case. Might combo with something in an interesting way, but generally speaking I would avoid playing this card.

Cost: 1 card, 2 credits, 1 action

Benefit: 4 credits, 1 action (virtually never do you need to gain credits without having a card you want to install)


Looks like you net 2 credits at the cost of your mandatory draw & the opportunity cost of the card slot / needing to get up to 2 credits. If you end up spending the saved action to just gain {1} then this is equivalent to Beanstalk, and who doesn't want more Beanstalks?

The effect doesn't state from where the card should come from...?

If not specified otherwise, the default position is HQ. Just like with Shipment from Mirrormorph.
