Two new maps for Power Grid. This is an expansion pack, so you will need the Power Grid game to play with it. As with the original, the board has a different map on each side: France and Italy. Along with the maps are small rule changes to reflect the power culture in these two countries. France, a land that has embraced nuclear power, has an earlier start with atomic plants and more uranium available. Italy has more waste, but fewer coal and oil resources. The result is not just new maps, but new ways to play this great game!
The Power Grid game rules leave it up to players to decide on how to determine the areas to use in any particular game. I have decided to come up with a way to randomly choose starting areas. By using the randomiser tables, you can just roll dice to determine starting areas. I came up with these tables so that when determining which areas to use, every possible combination of areas will have an equal chance of being used. The tables list all legal combination of areas for a 3, 4 or 5 area game. Simply roll the dice indicated on the table and look up the list of areas. Where the table says, "Re-roll", re-roll all dice until a result other that "Re-roll" comes up.
Because resupply rate affects strategy / game play, I created these Resource Resupply Table Cards meant for individual players for this pair of maps.
1) Same size as Power Grid Power Plant cards
2) Resources match the board game's resource colours
3) Can be printed back to back if your printer is good.
