Country Cards

Each player receives a country card, which determines that player’s group of countries. The card states the initial economic target and special rules for OPEC, developing countries or the former Soviet Union.

On the card there are three scales that show the prices for building black or green factories, as well as protective tokens. At the beginning of the game the price token is located to the far left of the scale. However, during the game it slides across to the right as factories or protective tokens are built. This has the effect of making certain types of factory cheaper and protective tokens more expensive. The price of factories can also be reduced through innovation. The starting number is located above each factory scale.
