A strategy game with surges of energy.
Power Grid is a strategic, European style board game where you develop and manage a power grid in Germany or the United States. The first time I played Power Grid I knew it would become a favorite.
It is an energetic (ha!) game for groups of two to six players who are eager to engage in a few hours of cutthroat competition over scare resources. Wine, cheese, and bottled tea help lighten the mood.
