Power Grid is an exciting and strategic game, where players compete to power the most cities within America and Germany. Power Grid is an immensely popular game, ranking number three on BoardGameGeek.
In Power Grid, players bid against each other to purchase power stations with varying levels of efficiency that they will use to power their cities.
Each of the power stations in Power Grid requires different amounts of resources to power it, such as coal, garbage, oil and uranium. Players can acquire these resources throughout the game. There are, however, some windfarm/solar plants which do not require these resources to power them, but these, of course, will be in high demand, and may cost you dearly.
Power Grid is a cleverly developed game, requiring players to balance using their money to purchase the most efficient power plants, with maintaining enough wealth to quickly expand their networks and get the cheapest routes.
