Let's hope they upgrade the components, even if it leads to an increase in price point.

Would this be the first RGG-published game to feature crayons?

Fawkes (#26462),

I am very excited to see that Rio Grande Games will be producing an English version of Funkenschlag. That is a game I have been wanting to purchase for some time but was holding out in hopes that it would be reprinted in English. Looks like I made the right call.

I emailed Jay Tummelson to find out if Power Grid's components (particularly the map) would be upgraded from what you get with Funkenschlag. He replied that "the game has been upgraded considerably." Life is good.

will it be so much good than the original ?

I've a feeling the new version won't be too difficult to lengthen; perhaps you would even be able to use the original rules.

Considering that my biggest problem with the original is that it takes too long for what I get out of it, I look forward to trying the new, shorter version.

I heard through the grapevein that the boards will have pre-drawn routes kind of like Pfeffersaecke I guesss.

Can anyone verify this?

At adamspielt it is available in the new edition already. They also show a picture of the new gameboard. The game seems a lot more streamlined and aimed at a slightly less hardcore gamer public. Looks good!
