Power Grid Deluxe
Power Grid Deluxe: Europe/North America is a standalone game.
For Power Grid's 10th anniversary, they offer you a brand new experience with this deluxe version. It features a huge double-sided game board for Europe and North America, new power plants, and all-new customized wooden parts. Gameplay is one-upped with the new overview cards for the resource refill. Against the Trust makes gameplay for two players more exhilarating!
The game has all the elements of Power Grid, with the auctions, thrilling resource speculations, city networks and the rivalry among you and your friends - all leading up to the end game with several players going for the win.
Power Grid Deluxe has the goal of supplying the most cities with power when a network grows to a predetermined size. You mark pre-existing routes for connections between cities, then bid against other players to buy the power plants that you need to power your cities. But as power plants get bought, newer, better power plants become available, so by simply buying, you are somehow letting other players have access to superior plants.
Plus, you must obtain resources (natural gas, oil, coal and uranium) needed to power the plants, making continuous upgrades a struggle for maximum efficiency while still having ample money left to immediately expand your network to get hold of the cheapest routes.
