Power Grid India/Australia Product Description
RGG498 Power Grid Australia India Subcontinent Rio Grande Games
This is an expansion for Power Grid featuring India and Australia (one map on each side of the board). Players need Power Grid to play the game and follow the normal rules for Power Grid except for the few changes in the rules for this expansions to cover the special conditions of India and Australia.
The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power when someones network gains a predetermined size. In this new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then bid against each other to purchase the power plants that they use to power their cities.
However, as plants are purchased, newer, more efficient plants become available, so by merely purchasing, you are potentially allowing others access to superior equipment.
Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials (coal, oil, garbage, and uranium) needed to power said plants (except for the renewable windfarm solar plants, which require no fuel), 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.
Requires Power Grid base game to play.
