The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power. In this new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection rights, and then vie against other players to purchase the power plants used to supply the power.
However, as plants are purchased, newer more efficient plants become available so you’re potentially allowing others to access superior equipment merely by purchasing it all.
Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials, like coal, oil, garbage, or uranium, to power said plants (except for the highly valuable ’renewable energy’ wind/solar plants), making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency, while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand your network to get the cheapest routes.
