Power Grid is in my opinion, simply one of the best euro games out there, and still ranks highly to me till this day. The game is definitely on the heavier side, and does take a while to play, especially the first couple of play throughs. The rule book does a great job of explaining the game the the different phrases and stages of the game. After playing a couple of times though, games should play pretty smoothly, in my experience around 1 to 1 1/2 hour games. The games mechanics blend nicely and provides a great balanced game, from the different phases of the game, the auctions, resources buying and management, and the network building. This really does fit with the theme, as it really does feel like you are building an electrical power grid. The game though, is quite math-y, so it may not be suitable for all players. But I really do enjoy playing it, it really does provide quite a challenge, trying to get the best power grid by the end of the game.
