Yep, we missed the rule about not being able to produce goods when you are at 16 in the waste category, too. I know Andrew wanted to try it but we were 1/2 through by the time he arrived.
Like Palmyra, IW represents a slice of an economic system, and the game itself feels a little dry to me. I compare IW to Palmyra, a game that has some cool elements but isn't quite satisfying. I think either one of these would work really well if the systems were plugged into a larger game like Civilization.
I look forward to playing IW again, though/

as well: If you do not have the capacity to store the waste by
producing an order, you may not produce the order. I think this makes
it a better (if somewhat longer) game.
I also played a game of IW this weekend, and also lost due to
insufficient waste management. Not a lot of recycling cards coming up
late in the game. After 4 plays (3x4p, 1x2p), I'm still pretty
pleased with this game. Very strategic, barely tactical, engaging and
fun. Despite there being not a lot of player interaction, the game is
much better with 4 than with 2, though it's not bad to learn/play with
2, but I wouldn't pull it out as a 2 player very often.
