Come on, you knew that *someone* was going to ask this question.

I assume it's the same as the original Power Grid: You must keep all your money visible in a stack, but you need not show the exact amount.

(We play with open money, but that's a variant.)

We play with hidden money. We found that there is less AP when you cannot count everyone's cash to see what they can do with each action.

We decided to play with closed money. I'm not saying that there's a lot of downtime with 6 players. But, people definitely can take some time trying to figure out how to bid based on resource prices, turn order, etc. I'd rather keep a little 'magic' in the game than provide a huge option graph for everyone traverse.

We play Power Grid with open money, otherwise the game becomes a lot longer as people make sure they can remember most other people's money.

That's funny, I have observed the exact opposite in all my games of Funkenschlag and have only played the card-version with hidden money without any dragging.
