Dilemma #10 - The Grid

On the mountainside above the city, long-dormant solar panels are being reactivated. They angle and glint in the winter sun, and across the districts below, the shattered electrical network begins to spark erratically back into life. Most of the city remains unpowered, the bulk of its underground cabling having fallen into disrepair, some of it having been dug through for agriculture.

Do the Districts dig up their fields to repair these connections?

Excavate: Gain 1 Ingenuity and Lose 1 Food (or lose 10 People instead if you are Starving)

Unearth: Gain 1 Ingenuity and Lose 1 Food (or lose 3 Food instead if your Defences are less than 1)

Ironically the second option would have been a null Gain/Lose 1 Ingenuity if True Dilemmas hadn’t passed and required me to reroll it.

Just think of it as currency to lose later so you can get something you want.

hey @Josh, don’t u have 0 Defences? that seems like a pretty big difference to me!

I Excavate, because it sounds fancier. You need a machine to Excavate, whereas the other choice you could just use a shovel.
