The object of Power Grid is to supply the most cities with power. Players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, and then compete to purchase the power plants to supply the power. As plants are purchased newer more efficient plants become available, potentially allowing other players to access to superior equipment.
Additionally, players must acquire the raw materials, like coal, oil, garbage, or uranium, to power their plants (except for the highly valuable ’renewable energy’ wind/solar plants), making it a constant struggle to upgrade your plants for maximum efficiency while still retaining enough wealth to quickly expand yournetwork to get the cheapest routes.
