The objective of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power when someone's network gains a predetermined size. In this new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then bid against each other to purchase the power plants that they use to power their cities.

However, as plants are purchased, newer, more efficient plants become available, so by merely purchasing, you're potentially allowing others access to superior equipment.

Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials (coal, oil, garbage, and uranium) needed to power said plants (except for the 'renewable' windfarm/ solar plants, which require no fuel), making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand your network to get the cheapest routes.

Comments:
So many resource management games out there. This one gets a lot of buzz and lots of people love this game. I thought it was OK and my wife didn't like it. Played it once with my game group to lukewarm reviews. Just looking to move it on to a household that will enjoy it more.

This was the first game I played in the Board Room on Wednesday. My friends and I were signed up for Big Board Power Grid on Thursday morning, but they'd never played before, so I got to teach them!

I was then pulled into my second-ever game of Power Grid (German map) with Jake, Kirit & Madison. This was a great game, and ended with a very close race to the finish. Thanks for being such a good sport in the face of some brutal collusion, Jake!

Power Grid has 3 subsystems, cities (on map), power plant cards, and resources, interrelated by money. None of these alone promises anything special, but bundled together they make a great game. An example of gestalt, the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

2004

I had just begun visiting a great LGS here in the Twin Cities (one I hadn't been to since I think High School!). I picked this up after hearing about it from other gamer friends. It holds a special place for a couple reasons. First, the rules themselves were confusing enough that we had to go online for video help! Second, it led us to BGG and this great community. I recently picked up the China/Korea map as we had an international student from the region and we wanted to familiarize ourselves more with that part of the world. I also grabbed the Robots expansion since we usually play with 2 and this helped give us a sense of more players. Still, after now playing with 4 people, it is really hard to bring this to the table with just the two of us. It is truly a great game that works very well with more people!!

Wishlist--it is the top of the heap for this year.

Not much gaming. Between job interviews, work, a 6+ mile hike in the White Mountains (climbed Mount Pierce for my 3rd "4000 footer"), and house-hunting stuff (which has now turned into house-purchasing stuff!), my weeks have been jam-packed. But I did manage to squeeze in...

Wednesday



Taught this to 2 guys from work, since my wife was at a training that night anyway. Bummer that it was a 3P, but since they were super into the auctions, resource buying, and turn order manipulation, it turned out to be fun, and one of the new players won -- besting me by $4. Alas, it was the other player who had bid me up, so he got a little favor. Tough game, the plant market stalled brutally, early and often... after the winner got the 18 at cost, the next plants were something like 11, 17, 14, 19, 23 (yes we took out the 8 plants, and they were ALL huge ones powering 4+, except for something like the #16).

Sunday



5P game on the Korea map. I tried a new strategy: take the 04, build the 4 connected cities, try to collect money for as long as possible in Step 2. The problem was that another guy was using the same strategy and getting better plants. He won and I came in second, trailing by about $23 (though since he had to build to 17 and I stopped at 13, technically he was making WAY more money). I had to pay 100 for the #30 just to stay in this game, which once again featured an ugly stall. The early stall hurt me because I was hoping to just get some wind plant or something and then sit on cheap capacity, but it was not to be. A resource depleting map: one guy had to replace the #15 with the #19, because coal was getting utterly destroyed.



Got KO'd pretty quick in a 4P game. 10 quick VP and the power for an extra +1 VP for starting your turn in Tokyo will do that to you. Couldn't stay out long enough to heal. Dice were not my friend.


At least I'll get in a game day Saturday, but that may be it for a while.
