It's supposed to come out in March. Do we know anything new about this edition besides the updated rulebook?

Personally, the only thing I care about is whether the money has been upgraded to thicker cardstock or poker chips (doubtful).

Did you see the news post on it? Seems to have a little more info than what you posted:

Ok. I did see it, but for some reason, I thought more information would follow like images and such.

Anyway, is anyone planning to get the new edition?

Maybe. I want to see if it's the same super crappy money or not.

A look at the sell sheet shows that it's the same paper money...unless it's thicker cardstock.

Going by the sell sheet, unless you really like the art, upgraded wooden bits and money in the Deluxe version, there doesn't seem to be a great lot of difference! You even get all the auction hammer/discount tokens.

Comparing the pieces to my original 2004 Power Grid, there's a few differences.

The resource pieces have changed, they are same style that came with Power Grid Deluxe: Europe/North America (and the upgrade kit for trash of course).

Also the houses in Recharged are a teensy bit taller and a little bit longer.

I wonder if there's any chance of an 'upgrade kit'? I'd gladly pay for the new/refreshed components.

I mean 20 bucks online for the full game is pretty cheap.
Edit: Whoops.

Where is it $20? MSRP is $50. I don't know many online places that cut 60% off MSRP, unless it is a clearance sale, and this isn't even released yet.

My mistake. You’re completely correct. I had ordered lot of copies and had a store credit applied. I think I paid around 34USD per copy.

I inquired about this through CSI today (as I have a preorder through them)

Here's what the rep said:

"Our shipment of this item was running late. We are expecting the game to arrive in the next week. Preorders will ship as soon as they arrive in."

Hoping to get this by the long Easter weekend. Fingers crossed...
