Refuse to play any more. I've played too many games with AP prone opponents and this game can drag as everyone does their math. No thanks.

Pretty much the same as Scattegories, but players score extra points for arguing about other player's answers.

Power Grid is the default game for my gaming group whenever 5 players turn up (and also when either 4 or 6 players turn up). We have played PG hundreds of times, using all the official maps plus some unofficial maps.

The reason I personally like PG is that it is effectively a railway game, involving careful manoeuvring on a map.

My 2013 ranking:
45

# of Plays (since 2009):
5 (plenty of plays before 2009 and also online on BSW)

Likes:
Fantastic use of resources, auctions, and turn order. Board is a little busy for me, but it’s got a cool style. The Benelux/Central Europe board is nice for changing things up a bit. When I was first learning, there were players on BSW who’d stick around after a play to discuss my mistakes with me.

Dislikes:
Like many auction games, this one is tough to have a fair game with new players. Most of all though, I dislike the few times that we allowed a player to block us off and use a stalling technique to crank out a bunch of money for a while (I did warn people that he was working towards doing it, but nobody believed me).

Tidbit:
My teaching buddy Nate was working on a similar game to Power Grid on his own before he ever got into the gaming hobby.

Memorable Game:
Probably the one at Nate’s house when Pearson blocked us off and stalled for a while. Crap!

Question:
I never suggest Power Grid as a game to play on game nights. Not sure why. Do you have a game like that?

Let's see.

1-5: difficult choice. I think I'll go for Twilight Struggle but Caverna is a close second.
6-10: 4 games I really don't want (or even hate), and Agricola.
11-15: owwww, don't make me choose between Power Grid and Le Havre... It's going to be the green box.
16-20: Meh. 7 Wonders is ok, I guess.
21-25: Dominion: Intrigue, because Dominion gets exponentially better with each expansion.
26-30: Dominion, of course.
31-35: no thank you.
36-40: not much better than the previous lot. I'll accept a professionalCrokinole board, and sell it on eBay.
41-45: Russian Railroads is good.
46-50: nope.

Bonus items:
Age of Steam. this and a couple of maps will go a long way.
Ra. A classic. I need this.

BUTTERFINGERS / LOST COMPONENTS

Has happened to me on a couple games (I'm missing a black Power Grid house and a red Rails of New England depot), to the point where I now demand people count out the components at the end of the game to make sure that the stuff they dropped actually found its way back to the table.

People are, sadly, way too careless with components that can be easily lost.

Never would have tried this otherwise, but found it at St Vinnie's for 2.49. Might as well give it a try.
