Power Grid:: Power Grid - Game Turn / Rules Summary By: AfrikaKorps14
PowerGrid_turn-summary_v10.pdf (297 KB)
Game Turn / Rules Summary, v1.0

As the title says, this is just a "cheat sheet" so that I didn't have to flip through the rules, just to check on the game turn details. Nothing fancy.

Also includes some notes regarding the extra power plant card expansion.

Have fun, everyone!

Power Grid:: Variant: Deregulation (adding electricity markets) By: ehittinger
Power Grid Deregulation Rules.pdf (1.19 MB)
This rules variant focuses mainly on electricity markets and provides an engaging latter half of the game that involves strategic bidding, market power, and competition to supply the electricity demand. This change adds complexity and interaction to the base game and we recommend that it is used only by groups already familiar with the standard Power Grid rules.

Designed by Eric Hittinger and Eric Williams at Rochester Institute of Technology, and supported by the National Science Foundation’s Civil Infrastructure Systems program (Grant number: CMMI 1436469).

(Yes, we are electricity system researchers but also play board games and have worked to make the gameplay engaging and fun.)

PS: We plan to update and improve this expansion over time, so please contact us with issues or suggestions (contact info in the file).

Power Grid:: Power Grid Solo - Player's Guide By: riznet
Solo Player Guide BGD v1.pdf (560 KB)
I put together a simple Power Grid player's guide based on the solo variant rules created by SoloPlay BGG user GamesRulesforOne.

It took me some time to distill the rules and write the details in a way that made more sense to me (hoping it helps you as well!).

A video also exists here> However, best to review the pdf since the video is just a quick run through of one round.

Please let me know if any tweaks would be helpful to the player's guide...

Power Grid:: Fan Plant Expansion - Top of Card Printable By: wolfpack1298
Powergrid Fan Expansion - Top of Card Printable.jpg (2.12 MB)
I downloaded the new plant expansion set and made my own cards today. In doing so, I decided to make it a little easier by creating a printable sheet with the card backs on it. All you have to do is print the two sheets of new cards included in the expansion onto card stock and once printed, flip it over, put it back in the printer, and then print the attached sheet of card back images. The card backs will print on the back side of the paper and right over top of the front card images. Then you just cut them out and you have double sided printed cards and you won't have to print the card backs separately and then glue them on.

Power Grid:: Quick Start and Refresher By: truthsdeceit
power grid quick start and refresher by truthsdeceit.pdf (55 KB)
This isn't meant to teach you how to play. It's for people who know how to play but don't get to play very often and don't want to reread the entire rule book every time to remember all the fiddly extra rules.
Has this ever happen to you? It takes you 10 mins to find where in the rulebook it says how much money everyone starts with.. this will fix that. Or halfway through a game you go "shouldn't that "step 3" card have come out by now?"... yes it should have but you forgot to remove the correct number of power plants for a 3 player game because the rules don't list that in setup... this will fix that.
I even learned a rule I never knew about while making this, because it was tucked away in a weird section of the rules. It doesn't break the game, but playing with it from now on will make it better, live and learn. :)

Thanks for the Gold and Thumbs.
UPDATED: This is the comprehensive set of Resource Resupply Cards meant for printing.
Format: The Resource Resupply Cards are:
1) Specific for the number of players.
2) Individualised for every single Power Grid map.

4) Colour matched to the gameboard resource pieces.

Germany / USA; France / Italy; Benelux / Central Europe; China / Korea; Brazil / Spain & Portugal; Russia / Japan; Québec / Baden-Württemberg; Northern Europe / United Kingdom & Ireland; Australia / Indian Subcontinent are all in the document.
If you would like only some of these cards see the first comment below for links to individual maps.

Quebec Power Grid Resource Resupply Rate Player Cards.pdf (896 KB)
The looks of these cards will be changed soon, with a better update, it will also be easier to cut and will have resources colour coded with the resources from the board game.

Québec's Resource Resupply Table Cards. Print on board, trim and give to individual players for the Québec map. These cards are an improvement in style to the original cards in the main document below and should be easier to cut.

Resource Re-Supply Card USA Germany.jpg (603 KB)
The looks of this card will be changed soon, with a better update...

This is what an individual 7 by 7 of the Resource Resupply Rate player card will look like when cut.

However, with the document below, you can print these resource resupply rate cards for every individual board at a 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 player game.
Jul 2, 2014
Power Grid Resource Resupply Rate Player Cards.pdf (1.59 MB)
Once you have the basics under wraps, most Power Grid boards have different rates of re-supply of resources and this also differs according to the number of players playing. Because this can obviously affect strategy / game play, I created these Resource Resupply Rate Player Cards.

If printed and cut properly, these cards address that potential issue by:
1. Ensuring every player has their own card. That is, there are two 2 player cards, three 3 player cards, four 4 player cards etc…
2. Ensuring only the re-supply numbers for the number of players playing is on the card.
3. Ensuring only the re-supply numbers for the named map is on the card.
4. Ensuring the colours of the numbers matches the colour of the original resources.
Each card should be approximately the same size as the Power Plant Cards. Feel free to download, keep and use as you please. If you find errors in the document, contact me through BGG and I will do my best to change the error. The document has internal links to find your map with correct player number easily.

Power Grid:: Area Randomiser Tables -- US and Germany By: Stuntman
PG Area Randomiser Tables - US Germany.xlsx (9 KB)
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.
