Description Edit | History

You finally have a new opponent for your Power Grid games: a robot that acts as an additional player. Thanks to his different actions and special abilities he is a strong opponent. You will manage the robot's "decisions" and can use him to act against the other opponent(s).

With this expansion, Power Grid is an exciting and fun experience for two (and more) players!

Power Grid: The Robots is designed especially for two players, but you can use a robot with up to five human players, too. You can even use more than one robot in a game.

The robot consists of five tiles, one tile with rules for each phase (except phase 1 »Determine Player Order« and phase 5 »bureaucracy«) plus a special ability, which the robot uses during the game.

With a total of 30 tiles - six different tiles for each phase - your Power Grid games will never be the same again!

Power Grid: The Robots FAQ has many Frequently Asked Questions which have appeared multiple times in the forum!

0 Translation template file.
File containing all labels boxes shapes with background color close to original one. To create your translation just input text in chosen language, and align center with background in X and Y direction. Original font seems to be Myriad Pro Condensed (normal and Bold) or similar. Not condensed version of font will create labels to big for the boxes. Created and tested based on Dutch version, using scanned images to get exact shape. File tested to edit in Adobe Illustrator CS2 and in Inkscape 0.48.

0 Improved polish stickers
Improved stickers for robots modules. Made using vector graphics. While printing be careful not to allow pdf viwer to scale, as then resulting labels will not fit into original ones. Tested on Dutch version. ------------------POLISH VERSION----------------------- Poprawione naklejki na moduły robota, narysowane z użyciem grafiki wektorowej. Przy drukowaniu trzeba wyłączyć opcję sklaowania - jeżeli wydruk jest sklaowany, to naklejki nie będą pasować do oryginalnych pól na robotach. Przetesotwane na wersji holenderskiej.
