Extra stuff for Power Grid! A "regular" powerplant (i.e., it's special but just gets added to the market as other plants do) and then some "Auction immediately!" buildings, which break up the game a bit and add some further interest. And then a couple of "Do this action now!" cards that aren't auctioned but mean that some stuff happens as soon as the card is drawn. All-in-all, a nice collection of novelties and extras to add a little more spice to regular Power Grid.

Der Fluch der Kartenspiele: es gibt unzählige Promokarten. Bei Funkenschlag kriegt man zum Glück noch alle halbwegs zusammen; zumindest wenn man regelmäßig in Essen am Stand vorbeischaut.
Umspannwerk und Pumpspeicher (hier nicht enthalten) sind gut; Lagerhalle okay; alle weiteren eigentlich unnötig.

Wanted it just for the flux capacitor! So far it is the only Promo card I have played with, but it's a real nice addition to the cards! I'll probably always play with it. Looking forward to adding the other cards in there as well sometime.

While new boards with slight rules variations can indeed add variety to Power Grid, this simple set of cards can add another layer of variety if just a few cards are used each game.

My gaming group and I ran these promo cards with the basic Germany and USA maps more than a couple of times already; and I can say they make quite a great addition to the game - almost like a mini-expansion. Shuffled into the power plant deck, these cards have altered many of our games, shifting and changing the purchasing priorities of the players when they come out midway of auctioning out power plants.

These provide some zany, but fun optional acquisitions to Power Grid. I really wish there were an icon marking the "plant" cards that are immediately auctioned to all when they are drawn, though.

Flux Generator  8  This is an exciting and useful plant!

Theme Park  10  This is a perfect addition to Power Grid: A city whose price is set by auction, but for which there are no connection costs.

Transformer Station  8  This is what Power Grid is all about: tradeoffs. Awesome, I can serve an additional city! Crap, I have to attach this to a plant. Early in the game, this can make a big financial difference, but the craptastic plant to which you connect it is probably going away at some point.

Warehouse  7  The warehouse itself works well enough, if you have a need to hoard extra resources; otherwise, it's not enticing at all. The resource market twiddlers, however, can pack a bit of surprise for one's plans; however, because they appear at such a time that they won't change the prices mid-stream, it's not such a problem.

additional "Step 3" card Er… OK.

Interesting mix of cards. Though the cards were shuffled into the deck, 3 of them popped up early and back to back, including the Flux Generator which constantly stayed in the future market.

Theme park helped get more cities connected (since we didn't make it to Step 3 this game) and the Warehouse helped screw over the resource market. The two events came out early and had little overall effect.

It seemed to drag the game out a bit but not too much since there was only 1 actual power plant added to the mix.

This collection of mini expansions adds a lot of interesting wrinkles to Power Grid. All of them involve throwing extra unplanned auctions into the mix so they can have a pretty profound effect on the dramatic arc of a game. I rarely use more than one or two of them at a time, but all of them are interesting in their own way.

A good expansion that is certainly not necessary but adds some nice elements and a bit of randomness but isn't too powerful to take over the game. the transformer is really nice especially early.

Purchasing promos is never, ever a good idea unless they're significant additions to one of your favorite games.

Power Grid is a top 20 game for me, and even then this promo set has remained untouched. But I WILL change that at some point. Darnit.

Update:

Ha! played!

Transformer Station: This small and simple expansion adds much to the base game. Depending on when it appears during the game, it can generate different levels of interest.

Flux Generator: This is a single card expansion to the base game. This card's tremendous flexibility and huge capacity (6 cities!) makes it a must grab whenever it appears during the game (usually Step 2 or 3). Its inclusion adds to the tension during the auction and certainly to the fun factor of the base game.

Warehouse: The Warehouse seemed a little redundant during 2 player games. It will prove its worth a little more during multi-player games.

The two event cards do add something to the base game, in that the more expensive resource power plants will come to the fore a little earlier. This will encourage earlier diversification into them.

Theme Park: This card allows the successful bidder to save the building and connection cost of one city. That depends on the number of players and which sections of the map is in play. Its value is therefore equal to the most expensive building cost (15 for 2 players, 20 for 3 or more players) + the most expensive of the cheapest remaining connection costs. In that sense, the starting bid value of 10 may be too low, but the bidding process should take care of that.

Nonetheless, this is another great addition to the base game as it gives players another option, this time from the building of cities perspective.

Six new cards, which fit nicely into the gameplay. Of course, they are not necessary, however they introduce some novelties in to the game without making it too fiddly.

Šešios naujos kortelės iš tiesų nesunkiai įsiliejančios į žaidimą. Žinoma, jos nėra būtinos, bet savotiškai žaidimą paįvairina ir tikrai nepadaro jo painesniu.

Érdekes új kártyák a játékhoz. A plusz ház, a plusz házfelfűtés, a raktár és a fluxusgenerátor is mind színesíti a játékot. Mind jól használható, jó vétel, de a játék nem minden szakaszában azonos jelentőségűek, ezért érdemes megfontolni mennyit érnek meg. Érdekes nyersanyagokat befolyásoló két kártya is. Jól sikerült kis kiegészítő a nagymultú játékhoz.
