Players compete to build the best network of power lines and stations, choosing which cities to supply and what sources of power to use.

The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power when someone's network gains a predetermined size. In this new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then bid against each other to purchase the power plants that they use to power their cities.

However, as plants are purchased, newer, more efficient plants become available, so by merely purchasing, you're potentially allowing others access to superior equipment.

Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials (coal, oil, garbage, and uranium) needed to power said plants (except for the 'renewable' windfarm/ solar plants, which require no fuel), making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand your network to get the cheapest routes.

gOOD GAME. FIRST TIME PLAYING

gOOD GAME. FIRST TIME PLAYING IS QUITE COMPLICATED UNLESS YOU'RE AN ADVANCED GAMER. DOESN'T REALLY WORK WITH 2 PLAYERS. GETS BETTER THE MORE YOU PLAY,
