Power Grid, a game of taking advantage of a fluctuating energy market in order to power the most cities in a cost-efficient manner. Apparently, a favorite of accountant geeks because it involves so much math and economic projection (true story).

+ Roll for the Galaxy

Basically Roll for the Galaxy, but on a map of the galaxy. Allows you to build physical connections between space stations and/or planets by using explore and colonise actions. You need to have connections to allow you to ship goods and make a profit. You have access to a market that allows you to make infrastructure improvements in locations where you have connections, with these improvements making your shipping products more valuable.

Is this already a game? I haven't played a lot of space games (although I'd certainly like to play more!!).

This was Lexi's favorite game last year and is still my very favorite. Don't know why it slipped down. Lexi always says that while Power Grid has a lot of rules, the systems all make sense in a way that makes it easy to learn and easy and enjoyable to play.

If you can imagine, we played this by sitting down in the middle of a convention with a couple of friends and learning from the rules in the middle of the extremely loud and crowded convention hall. To say it was an instant success is an understatement. We gave one of those friends Power Grid Deluxe as a wedding present last year.

3 hours.

Too much down time when people are building?

Edit: NO for the games where Ray says he can see who's going to win and that there's still an hour of play left.

I think of Power Grid as the Poster Child for this:

Player Order during game is determined each turn by the number of cities connected.
The player with most cities is first in player order and disadvantaged in all Game stages:

- Auction of new Power Plants is in Player order. Weaker players have more options to wait on better Plants appearing on the market.
- Buying recourses is in reverse player order. Weakest player gets most choice and best prices.
- Placing new Towns is in reverse player order. Weakest player has most options.

The only thing you have to see is, that the player order can be manipulated by building or not building. This is a very important aspect of the game.

#8 - Money

Who doesn't love having something to fiddle with during a game. Especially when it is in the rules that you can hide the information from other players.
Whether you prefer paper, poker chips or cardboard tokens, it feels good to be slowly amassing a greater buying potential.

Buying Power stations and resources. How boring.

Except that somehow doing mathematics has never been more fun. I love the end game part of Power Grid. I sit there, pencil and slip of paper in hand, crunching the numbers on how much I need to spend to get myself to 17 cities - can I power more cities than my opponents? What do I need to do to drive the price of resources up to make this possible? Crap, I'm not in the right playing order to do that.

Man, Power Grid is cool. Shame it doesn't play well 2 player.
