Each turn, you play your cards in that order.

You play Companies, which allow you to roll for Grants, which allow you to play Projects—and then you play Strategies to shift the values of your Projects and those of your Opponent.

Why strategize to boost the value of your Projects? Because you need strong Projects to take Community Points from your Opponent. And the Player with the highest Community Points wins the game.
