Power Grid: Recharged is the updated version of the classic economic game, in which 2-6 players vie to build the biggest power-generation network.
What better way to earn money than with electric power?!! But how should you do it? Will you use old-fashioned coal or oil? Maybe you’ll be on the forefront of burning garbage. Nuclear power is tempting, as long as you can acquire uranium. You can always be independent of resources if you go the ecological route. No matter how you decide to generate energy, you’ll have to compete with other players for power plants and fuel. And then you’ll compete again to be the first to connect to each city!
You’ll need to watch your opponents closely, carefully manage your money, and expand your network thoughtfully in order to generate income. The player that is able to build the largest network AND successfully power it will be the winner.
Power Grid: Recharged has all the strategy and fun of the classic first edition, but adds some updates that improve the (already great) gameplay.
