Power Grid Prize!

So you’ve been keeping your eye on Power Grid: Factory Manager?  Or maybe you’re a huge fan of Power Grid?  Or perhaps you’ve been waiting for something special and unique to enhance your Power Grid experience?

If that’s so, the wait is finally over!

Every once in a while, we at SeriouslyBoard come across something so special that we can’t keep it to ourselves.  In fact, this time it’s literal – we want to give something away!

In October 2008, at the Spiel expo in Essen, (the German town considered the spiritual home of modern board gaming), two limited edition Power Grid power plant cards were released.  More than a year later, we’ve managed to get our hands on one of each:

Power Grid Promotional Cards

You may have noticed that someone has scribbled on them with a marker pen.  Those “scribbles” are in fact the autographs of Friedemann Friese, designer of Power Grid, and the game’s artist Maura Kalusky!

So how do you get one of these gems?

Well, we aren’t going to sell them.  For two lucky customers, each card will be given away free of charge!

Here’s how it works: simply buy Power Grid or Power Grid: Factory Manager in the month of March, and you’re in the draw!  It’s as simple as that!  Plus, if you’re already a fan on our Facebook page, you’ll get an even better offer!

(Note: these cards can’t be used with Power Grid: Factory Manager, but we’ve included that game in our special for those of you who already own Power Grid, and because the newer game features the same designer and artist.)

    Sweet deal; great catch, guys.

    Just checking in from Chile; the travelling portion of Seriously Board is alive and well. In fact, I won my first ever game of Catan Gard Game a few nights ago (to Janine’s detriment!).

      Glad to hear the ‘alive and well’ part, Craig!

      Glad to hear that you’re enjoying Catan Card Game, too…even if Janine isn’t! 😉
