I stumbled across the mentioning of this game (can't remember where now) and it sounds great to me as I've always appreciated card or dice versions of games like Pendemic The Cure (dice) or Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game (cards) so I am totally intrigued Power Grid the Card Game.

Has it been released anywhere yet?

As written in all actual localized versions, the release date is at SPIEL, middle of October 2016.

What a pity that it uses the Deluxe art. I know that this is like Nutella, but I just can't stand it cry

If everything works as planned (as it does right now), hopefully a week or two after SPIEL.

Having read this review/analysis the game has now moved into the "must buy" category for me. I like Power Grid a lot but find the time commitment too large for what if offers (especially when trying to introduce it to new players). If this fixes that issue (which by all accounts it does) then I'm adding it to my collection at the earliest opportunity.

Can't believe this game has generated more buzz. I'm SUPER excited about it. Seriously, one of the highest rated games on bgg despite being over 10 years old, now in an awesome sounding sped up card version. And perhaps even fun with 2 (we'll have to see about that, but still..). Any idea why this has so far stayed kind of under the radar?

Clyde, we are hoping to receive it in our warehouse in the next week or so, and then it will ship out to our distributors for distribution to retailers.

A buddy of mine contacted Rio Grande Customer Service a few weeks ago and got this reply (on November 18th):

Quote:
We are expecting(hoping) to receive Power Grid the Card Game in our warehouse next week, but it may be delayed due to the holiday. If so, we should receive it the following week.

We will immediately start shipping it out to our distributors, who will then turn around and ship it out to retailers.

To make sure, you should contact your local game store and make sure they already have an order in place for it with their distributor.

Thank you very much for your interest in Rio Grande Games.

Happy gaming!


So based on the date of the email, I imagine it should be going out to retailers pretty soon. Fingers crossed!

I also contacted Rio Grande Games
and this was the response I revived on December 1st 2016


Quote:
We just started shipping Power Grid the Card Game to our distributors this week. Once they receive them, they will then ship them to retailers. So my guess is that they should start showing up in retail stores next week.

You may want to contact your local retail store to make sure they have an order in with their distributor to make sure that they receive Power Grid the Card Game quickly.

Thank you for your interest in Rio Grande Games.
