Let me begin by sharing with you that I have always enjoyed playing Power Grid. After several plays over the last four years (Wow! Four years already. Where has the time gone?) I was first introduced to this game right after playing Ticket To Ride for the first time.
This was one of the very first modern board games I ever played. I was fascinated by how easy it was to learn and grasp for a heavier economic strategy game. I like the auction mechanic that has players bidding on the best power plants, but a player can find them-self paying too much leaving them short on funds when it comes to paying for the fuel, and if you cannot fuel your power plants then you don't get paid. Ah! Fun!
Best of all Power Grid has lots of expansions to keep it interesting - building in faraway countries, or adding new rules like Robots or the stock market.
