CSI Just added Power Grid Deluxe: Europe/North America to their Black Friday Sale for only $37.99 which is more than 50% off the MSRP of $79.99 and the lowest price it's sold for to date by a wide margin.

Even though they've probably got a ton on hand at this price I'll be surprised if it doesn't sell out before the day is out. Should be added to their Holiday Deal of the Day page come morning. Update: SOLD OUT



Few things worthy of note:

- This is a stand alone game that is not compatible with the standard edition out of the box. That said there will be an upgrade pack made available to distributors and the geek store which will allow you to use the upgraded components with the original game and expansions.

- Features a number of new rules and minor gameplay enhancements that virtually every reviewer I've read/watched feels improves on the original. More than one has noted that they feel it "fixes" some of their minor irritations with the original.

- That said if you didn't like the original this isn't different enough to that it is likely to change your opinion since it essentially plays like a variant/expansion with upgraded components.

- This offers a new 2 Player mode that has been exceptionally well received. Unlike some other aspects this can be adopted for use with the original game without any need to own the Deluxe edition. (rules rather than component based enhancement) There is already an official version of this variant for the original game in the works.

BGG Link: Power Grid Deluxe: Europe/North America
Avg Rating: 8.47 with 137 Votes
Recommended with full player count from 2-6
MSRP: $79.99
MM: $55 (OOS)
AMZ: $54.48 (+ tax where applicable) Shipped

Update: As suspected it's one of their Deals of the Day along with Cyclades: Hades, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) – Lair of the Wyrm, and a few others.

20+ at present. I was really on the fence about buying this, since I own the original, but for $38, I'm in. Coupled with an XCOM pre-order and picking up the base to the D&D Attack Wing that I've had sitting in my saved for later forever, and I've got my $100 for free shipping.

Great price! Too bad I can't put together $100 worth of an order from the other sale items. Or should that be "good thing I can't"?

I wonder if this will still be on sale by Cyber Monday. There's nothing else interesting left on the Black Friday sale.

Highly doubt it.

1) It's likely to sell out at this price. (though this is the kind of title they've been known to stock hundreds of)

2) More importantly, since it's quite certain to be on today's daily deal page the price will expire at Midnight EST even if it doesn't sell out.

As Quintious pointed out there are 20+ in stock. CSI instituted a cart limit that prevents us seeing what the real inventory is quite some time ago.

I have yet to play Power Grid but have the original new in shrink. I can likely sell it and break even or even make a small profit. At this price would you recommend ditching the original and just starting my power grid experience with the Deluxe version?

Re: [CSI] Power Grid: Deluxe $37.99 (52% off MSRP)
Thanks for talking me off the ledge...That completely rationalizes my Cyclades: Hades purchase in lieu of Power Grid. Looks like it is time to ship those 12 orders I have on hold and hope that my wife doesn't kill me. Keeping my fingers crossed...

Have fun with LotR core set - it's an amazing game! If you're having trouble and getting frustrated, check out the LotR forums on the geek for some great decks to use with the core set.

Are the card backs on this version different than the original? I ask to know if it is possible to mix the promos into this game as wel as the original.

I believe the old promos are not compatible. There was some rebalancing with changing garbage to natural gas; but they are planning on updating the addon content and releasing it as well.

I am thinking really hard about picking up powergrid. I have been looking at purchasing this base game for a while but this deal is tipping the scales in me purchasing the deluxe version today. I have read that most people suggest just purchasing the base game an expansions, is that still the better way to go even at this price point?

At this price, deluxe is probably worth it if you don't own the original.

All gone. Funny, there were still 20+ available around 3-3:30 EST this afternoon. I guess folks felt compelled to buy Power Grid after the Chargers beat the Ravens around 4:00.
