We had a great turnout, of both veterans and new comers, to the first post-Christmas, and last Thursday of the year, meetup. At the peak time we had five tables going with games.

We had seven gamers there right at six. Maida and I had been talking Power Grid on Facebook pre-meetup. Melissa and Darryl were up for it as well.

My newest map still had and unplayed side so I placed the Baden-Württemberg side face up and we got down to business. This map is a beast. The Step 2 only cities combined with the stagnant power plant market and determining player order after plants are bought made this a slug fest.

In the end as Step 3 reared it's head Maida had the cash and the edge in production to sweep up the win. I did make a last ditch effort to lock her out, by making a huge city buy, but it didn't work.

Scores:
Maida (Purple) - 14 cities powered (14 owned)
Darryl (Blue) - 12 cities powered (12 owned)
Rich (Black) - 12 cities powered (20 owned)
Melissa (Green) - 11 cities powered (13 owned)

Up next for my quartet was a recent Christmas gift for me. We got a few things wrong, which is par for a first play, but it shows some definite promise. Can't wait to get this tabled again.

Scores:
Melissa (Yellow) - 183
Rich (Gray) - 176
Darryl (Orange) - 142
Maida (Purple) - 132
