From the introduction:
All players should work together to complete the following steps - Choose a seed, Think of a basic human need, Choose a solution, Choose a format and Choose an inconvenient flaw, and Imagine a technology. The rules recommend using a six-sided die to make choices, but you can use any other method. Come to a consensus, take turns deciding, or vote if you prefer.
Some steps require creativity, imagination, and clever thinking that a six-sided die cannot substitute. Collaborate, but the player whose seed was chosen has the authority to decide. Move on to the next step when they have made the final decision.
