I'm relatively new to Power Grid and was wondering which of the expansion maps would be a good choice to start with to expand the base game? I was looking at Brazil/Spain, but wanted to get the opinions of those expert Power Grid players on BGG. What's your recommendation?

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

I like Power Grid: Benelux/Central Europe. The Benelux map in particular plays faster than most maps, and Central Europe is interesting but not too different.

This thread gives a pretty good comparison of each expansion. I found it very helpful...

+1 Power Grid: Benelux/Central Europe - Benelux is widely considered the best map for teaching the game.
