Hi you all.
I did play Power Grid last weekend. What a game!!!
The only question that we were'nt sure about was where to put the cards removed from the market - under the pile or off the game. The rules are not very specific about that (so we think) and we played like this: When you have a number of houses equal or superior to the lowest power plant you discard that power plant from the game (off the game). When we remove the highest power plant from the future market and the lowest one at the beggining of step two we've placed those power plants at the bottom of the deck.
Another thing that we were'nt sure about was at the step two beggining. We had to discard the lowest power plant (either off the game or under the deck). Is it made only once during the game or is it done everytime before the auction until step three starts?
Thank you.

Whenever a low power plant is discarded from the available plants, it is removed from the game. Whenever a high power plant is discarded from the available plants, it is placed back under the deck.

Whenever a person discards a plant because s/he is replacing one with a new plant, it is removed from the game.

The lowest plant is removed only once during step two, at the very beginning of step two.

The lowest plant is also replaced every turn during Step 3. Only highest plants that are removed from the market at the end of each turn during steps 1 & 2 are placed on the bottom of the deck. All other plants, whether discards by players by being replaced, removed from the market (either one at teh beginning of Step 2 or every turn during Step 3) are removed from the game (put them back in the box). Also remember to shuffle the plants that are under the Step 3 when it appears.
