Power Grid

Date: 11-07-2010

Venue: Old Town Kopitiam @ Wangsa Maju

Description: After a full day gaming session at The Mage Cafe, I went for a dinner with ET & Max, then go home take a bath. Adam came over to Wangsa Maju Old Town Kopitiam for another gaming session with me & ET. We played a 3 players game of "Power Grid". "Power Grid" used to hit our table every gaming session back then, we all love it and enjoy playing it. It's been a long time we didn't play it and tonight it's on the table again. Adam used to win a lot back then, but now he's not 'cos he forgot some of the rules and his winning strategy. ET & me both powered 17 cities in the last round and we have to decide who is the winner by who is the richest player. In the end, I lose.

End game scores:
ET (winner) powered 17 cities (with 197 Electro)
Me powered 17 cities (with 144 Electro)
Adam powered 14 cities (with 151 Electro)

The game started. Power Plants auction market on the left, Resources market on the right. My first bought power plant at the bottom.

After I've spent 26 Electro to bid for this Windmill Power Plant (cost 22), another same power value with 18 cost Windmill Power Plant came out! And the last player bought it with only 18 Electro. Damn!

Adam's counting his Electros under the table. We usually play "Power Grid" with a house rule, which money are not visible to other players. This will make the game more intense.
