One of my top picks for Essen, this game - are there any rules out for this yet?

I don't think so, but there is a quite detailed description here

I know... the opinionated gamers description has me excited. I just like a good read of the rulebook proper

Hopefully they will appear here: http://riograndegames.com/Game/1307-Power-Grid-Card-Game soon (or here: http://www.2f-spiele.de/spiele/spiele_akt_deut.htm if you are/speak German).

The German rules will be available at our website latest middle of next week.

Rio Grande usually uploads the English rules closer to the release of the game, so you may need a little bit more patience.

I contacted Rio Grande, but they will not put the rules up on their website until they start shipping English copies.

I checked Rio Grande today and they are still not up?
Disappointed as my friend bought a German version at Essen on the understanding we could get a copy of the English rules

As written above, and as we asked our staff at SPIEL to tell every international customer, Rio Grande uploads game rules always when starting to sell the matching games. Thus, it will take some more time until the rules will be available.

The demand for this game was even higher than our optimistic (limited) delivery of English copies to the show. We sold out of the English edition on Saturday morning.

I have the English version of the game. If people geekmail me their email address, I can scan the rules tonight or tomorrow and supply them to any that need it, while we wait for the official copy.

Rio Grande puts the rules up the day they start shipping the game, and no sooner.

So your saying Rio Grande should support people who don't buy their product?

Entitled much?

Then that is the problem with Rio Grande. Marketing products involves creating awareness and providing information to potential customers; a rule book is part of it. Don't expect me to buy a product I know little about.

I think the problem here is that the game has been released at Essen. There were English and German version of the game available. Because the game itself is language independent, people bought the German version when the English version was sold out. Now Rio Grande is 'preventing' those people from playing their game. The game has been released, they can make the rulebook available.

Thanks to everyone who has sent me their details for the scan of Power Grid. I've had a really busy week at work, so I haven't scanned it yet, but plan to get it out on Friday.

So you can send me the English rules you promised when I baught the German version off you a month or so ago.

You never even responded to my emails. you really shouldn't have advertised That you would include a print out of the English rules.

In fact I see you are still selling the German version and still claim to include a print out of the English rules.

(Shake of the head)
