Hey Geekshelfers! Recently, Joy took a bad fall while bouldering and sprained both her ankles. She's doing fine but she can't walk around and needs to stay off her feet for awhile. She was feeling a bit low but luckily, we had a few friends come over and play a board game to lift her spirits. The game was Power Grid!
In the game, players build power stations that supply electricity to houses on a map (we played the Germany map in the pic below).
Here's a close-up of the resource market. Coal is brown, oil is black, garbage is yellow and uranium is red. The more players buy a certain resource, the less of it there is and the more expensive it gets.
|resources become quite expensive!|
|You can build houses but can you provide enough power for them all?|
Here's a picture of the map late in the game.
|Powering houses across Germany!|
