An energetic economic game for 3 – 5 (6) players at age 12+
Author: Friedemann Friese
Playing time: 120 minutes
Earning money with electric power? Earning lots of money
with electric power? A very good idea!!! Should I use coal or oil to generate
power in the old-fashioned or will there be a shortage of those resources in the
future? Will there
be a future in burning garbage? Certainly nuclear power is very exciting and as
long as the government will manage the nuclear waste there will be a lot of profit.
Of course, you can use more ecological friendly power and be independent of resources.
But will such power plants be powerful enough for the customers in the future?
Naturally, you must watch your competitors to see what plants they build, which
cities they have in their net, what resources they depend on, and what new power
plants they find interesting.
Idea of the game:
Each player represents a company, which owns power plants and tries to supply
electricity to cities. During the game, the players bid for power plants and
buy resources to produce electricity. They must also expand their networks to
supply a growing number of cities with electricity.
