    Product Description

    Power Grid Board Game

    Power Grid is the updated release of the Friedemann Friese crayon game Funkenschlag. The latest cooperative publishing effort from Friedemann Friese and Rio Grande Games,removes the crayon aspect from network building in the original editionwhile retaining the fluctuating commodities market like McMulti and an auction round intensity reminiscent of The Princes of Florence. The object of Power Grid is to supply the mostcities with power when someone’s network gains a predetermined size. Inthis new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities forconnection, and then vie against other players to purchase the powerplants that you use to supply the power. However, as plants arepurchased, newer more efficient plants become available so you’repotentially allowing others to access to superior equipment merely bypurchasing at all. Additionally, players must acquire the rawmaterials, like coal, oil, garbage, or uranium, to power said plants(except for the highly valuable ’renewable energy’ wind/solar plants),making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximumefficiency while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand yournetwork to get the cheapest routes.

    While strategic, provides lots of fun with the auction and market mechanic, it just gets better towards the end!

    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.

    Funkenschlag is the original name of Power Grid. Suffice to say that with the expansion maps and the new power plant cards, there is a lot of replayability in the base game itself. There are other variations in the Power Grid universe such as First Sparks, Factory Manager etc, but the original Power Grid still has a large following and is still one of the ten best games for a starting collection.
