    Research & Development

    Using this rule, you may attempt to develop improved military technology. If you decide to use Research & Development, it becomes the new phase 1 of the turn sequence, bumping the other phases up a number.

    China may not do Research and Development. Research and Development Sequence

    1. Buy research dice
    2. Roll research dice
    3. Roll breakthrough die
    4. Mark developments

    Step 1: Buy Research Dice
    You may purchase a pair of research dice for 6 IPCs, and you may only purchase a maximum of 3 pairs per turn (6 dice).

    Step 2: Roll Research Dice
    Roll each of your purchased research dice. Success: If you roll at least one 6, Continue to step 3. Failure: If you don’t roll a 6, your research has failed.

    Step 3: Roll Breakthrough Die
    If your research was successful, choose one of the three breakthrough charts and roll a die to see which technological advance you get.

    Step 4. Mark Developments
    If your research was successful, place one of your national control markers inside the appropriate advancement box on the Research and Development chart. Your development becomes effective immediately. Any number of powers may develop the same technology, but powers can’t share their technology, and powers may never gain the same technology twice.
