Yeah it's here! Really it's right here.
A while back a few friends and I decided to dust off my copy of Funkenschlag (aka Powergrid) which for some bizzare reason had lain unplayed for many months.
Since we hadn't played it in a long time and only had the German language rules handy we did our best to recall as many rules as we could and figured out the rest using our poor grasp of the German language.
What emerged was a version of the rules that was 99% the same as the actual rules, but with two important variations.
1. We thought you started with 20 electro instead of 50.
2. We got it into our heads that you must buy a powerplant each turn.
About 5 or 6 turns in it rapidly became apparent that if we continued with these rules the game would end in a draw pretty soon as each of us went bankrupt one by one.
At this point we bowed to the inevitable and went online to BGG to check what the real rules were. After much laughter and forehead-slapping, the game was restarted and continued in a more traditional, if less original fashion.
We ended up nick-naming our confused version of the rules "The Enron Variant" for obvious reasons. I wouldn't recommend it as a variant, but it still makes me laugh to think about it and our growing alarm as the game progressed, so I thought I would share it here.
For the true Enron variant, you would have allowed each player to take out three loans on the value of their power plants. Then when they needed the forth loan, only then would they have to go banrupt as the banks found they were short money and all had the same power plants as collateral.
