Antiquity gets its 200th vote this week and moves off the SRaNG list. Power Grid's not an I/M game but the Italy/France board is. Hmmm? Caylus and Ra move up and Wallenstein drops a bit. Antike looks like the big winner though as its moved up a lot in the last two weeks.

Have a good week.

Ahh.. the classic is not is of Funkenschlag and Power Grid.

I believe in Funk (as defined by BGG) you could design your own map in some way. Whereas PG comes with a printed map taht you must conquer.

If anyone's knows better, let me know.

Power Grid and Funkenschlag have different game numbers as well.

Power Grid Italy/France really bumps up powergrid a notch in my book. A better PG.

Even weirder &cetera is on, but Roads and Boats off? The plot thickens.

Caylus re-overtakes T&E.

Maybe Wallenstein is slowing in anticipation of Shogun.

Antiquity at 92 in debut. Awesome!

Funkenschlag 1.0 had a crayon mechanic where the cities were printed onto the map, but players had to actually draw the routes on and pay the cost.

Funkenschlag 2.0/Power Grid (English Title) replaced the crayons with a set map. The costs of the links are printed, and static. This shortens the game up considerably.
