Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Each player owns a factory and tries to earn the most money during the game. To be successful, each player must use his workers to buy the best machines and robots at the market and to run the machines most effectively in his factory. Because of increasing energy prices, the players must be careful to check the energy consumption of their factories and to avoid using only energy-consuming machines. Otherwise, their profit will suddenly vanish, the worst fear of a good businessman. For 2 to 5 players. Play time of 60 minutes. Factory Manager is the new stand-alone game in the world of Power Grid. It was released at Spiel '09 in Essen, Germany. Factory Manager uses a clever market mechanism for choosing the supply of factory tiles in the market.

Product Description

Welcome to the world of Power Grid. After Power Grid taught you the tough competition between energy producers, now you get to know the road traveled b y energy consumers. Start to be a Factory Manager and make the important decisions to improve your own factory. Fight against the other competitors for the best factory equipment available in the market to be the best player at the end of the game. Power Grid - Factory Manager is a Business-Buildup-Game. You start with a small factory and try to improve it. At the beginning you may simply focus on increasing the production. Later you are confronted with new challenges: track the ever increasing energy price and cleverly distribute your workers for the best benefit. By being close to the theme, the game is logical and coherent in its main features. A clever new mechanism improves the game by affecting the player order and the actions on the market. But dont say we did not warn you: Because of only 5 turns the game is exciting right from the start. Be careful all the time or your fellow players will mercilessly leave you behind!

This game is great and wonderful for grandparents to older teens.

Someone with a less productive factory and less profits can win if they just have a large amount of cash at the end of the final round.

Has many mechanics similar to Power Grid, but it's a very different gameplay experience!

Great game that me and my 11 year old son play on a regular basis. Once you learn the game, you can play quick 30 minute games but it gets a bit repetitive.

This game is great and wonderful for grandparents to older teens. We had not found a new table game in a while. My older son found this rated one of the top 100 board games and bought it. It sure beats monopoly, mexican train,or rubi cube. It is a wonderful change of pace.
It has you juggle workers, electricity use, machine production and storage to create the most productive factory. It is a short game, just about when you get the hang of it....it is the end! :)

By Paul LoveKing on January 21, 2014
I host a weekly games night, and have about 200 games on the shelf. I've played a few games, and have good basis for comparison when I review a game.

I like factory manager. Some people in our group had complaints that it bears little resemblance to power grid, and that is because it is an entirely different game, not an expansion to power grid. I don't know why they mention power grid in the title, that's just a distraction. Power grid is probably a better game, but power grid is better than a lot of games.

Factory manager has a little auction, and a bunch of resource management. You have workers and money, and a clear time limit. At the end of the game, the manager with the most money wins. There are many components you can add to your factory, and a collaborative process for making them available to purchase each turn. The player who goes first gets to buy the best stuff, but has the least influence on what is available to buy each round. The player who goes last gets to buy from whatever the other players left unpurchased, but the last player has the most influence on which of the good items are available at all, and buys at a discount. So, determining the turn order is a big deal, but, sadly, you bid workers for turn order and you just don't have enough workers to do very much bidding. I think the game would benefit from a more interesting way to bid for player order.

Like I said at the start. I like the game, I don't love it, but I do like it.

Has many mechanics similar to Power Grid, but it's a very different gameplay experience! LOVE this game - so far I think we tend to prefer Factory Manager over the original Power Grid game; it seems like this game has more dimensions that require balance - it's more of a mental challenge - not to understand - but to win. Like the originals, the luck element of this game is very very small - it's all about strategy. With 2 people it takes about 45 min, 4 people takes about an hour. I've introduced it to a few friends and they very much enjoyed it. The more people playing, the more fun it can be - but it also makes it harder to decide what path to take and generally you end up waiting for people to take their turns. High replay value! I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
