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 vie against other players to purchase the power planets that you use to supply the power. However, as plants are purchased, newer and more efficient plants become available so you're effectively allowing others to access to superior equipment. Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials like coat, oil, garbage, or uranium to power the plants, making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency. This family strategy board game is for 2 to 6 players and takes about two hours to play.
