(GAME SUMMARY)
Drake says: "In Power Grid, players are rival energy magnates, each trying to grab a bigger slice of the market share as they vie against each other to purchase power plants. Additionally, players must acquire raw materials such as coal, oil, garbage, or uranium, to power the plants (except for the highly valuable 'renewable energy' wind/solar plants). As newer more efficient plants become available, players must balance upgrading existing plants for maximum efficiency while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand their network and obtain the cheapest routes."

(TIPS/COMMENTS)
John says: "Power Grid is known to be an intensely competitive game. The rule booklet is a bit daunting, but hang in there with it, it's worth it! It's helpful if at least one player is familiar with the rules before playing, rather than trying to read the rules and learn the game as a group. The game challenge increases with more players. This game is fresh every time, with no predictability of what your opponents will do. Watch out! This game just might become your favorite!"

Description:

Earning money with electric power? Earning lots of money with electric power? A very good idea!!! Should I use coal or oil to generate power the old-fashioned way or will there be a shortage of those resources in the future? Will there be a future in burning garbage? Certainly nuclear power is very exciting and as long as the government will manage the nuclear waste there will be a lot of profit. Of course, you can use more ecological friendly power and be independent of resources. But will such power plants be powerful enough for the customers in the future? Naturally, you must watch your competitors to see what plants they build, which cities they have in their net, which resources they depend on, and what new power plants they find interesting.

A strategy game of planning with surges of energy.
