Game of the Month
April 2006
In German all game titles by Friedeman Friese start with the letter 'f', and very often his games are really 'fantastic', either through very unique themes, crazy ideas or very thoughtful game designs. 'Power Grid' is an absolute 'gamer's game', because it will impress the most in a round with expert gamers who explore the system to its fullest potential. All players have to keep up with the technological energy development, but very much unlike similar games like 'Outpost' the last ones suddenly can become the leaders in the endgame. The winner is mostly only clear in the final round, but is not created by randomness. This is a rare design achievement, and not only because of this Friedemann Friese can proudly wear the designer crown this month.
