A game of strategy and foresight, Power Grid from Rio Grande Games requires
patience and skill. The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power
once ones network gains a predetermined size. In this new edition, players mark
pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then bid against one another
to purchase the power plants used to power their cities. However, as plants are
purchased, newer more efficient plants become available. By purchasing at all, each
player potentially allows others access to superior equipment. Additionally, players must
acquire the raw materials, like coal, oil, garbage, or uranium, to power said plants (except
for the highly valuable renewable energy wind/solar plants). The game is a constant
struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency, while retaining enough wealth to
quickly expand your network along the cheapest routes.
