new and improved Funkenschlag ...

Power Grid will be played per the printed rules from Rio Grande Games. 2F's FAQ is located here: http://www.2f-spiele.de/spiele/faq/faq_frames_eng.htm

Money should be hidden, but must be kept on table!

Setup: 5-player games use five of the six board regions and 4-player use four of the six; these regions are selected by each player in player order (randomly determined). There is some bad wording in the rulebook and here is how it shall be handled: each player in turn order selects a region they want to be "in play"; you can select any region with the caveat that all regions must be contiguous when the last player selects.

Example: 5-player game on the Italy board. P1 choose the brown boot section, P2 selects the Green northern region, and P3/P4/P5 must choose Yellow, Red, and Purple. This will help speed setup for some boards.

We will use 5-player games by preference, resorting to 4-player games if necessary based on the number of players.


* Heat 1: France or Italy

* Heat 2: Benelux or Central Europe

* Heat 3: UK & Ireland or Northern Europe

* Semifinal: Spain & Portugal

* Final: Australia

* If there are not enough maps in any of the heats, games will be played on the default US map

Format HMWG. Up to 36 players will advance to the semifinal. Rankings determined by:

a. Most Wins;
b. Win in first heat entered;
c. Win in second heat entered;
d. Win in third heat entered;
e. Based on points earned.
f. Margin of victory (or defeat if between two 2nd places).


5-player game (default)

1st ­ 10 Points
2nd ­ 4 Points
3rd ­ 2 Points
4th ­ 1 Point
5th ­ 0 Points

4-player game (if necessary)

1st ­ 10 Points
2nd ­ 4 Points
3rd ­ 1 Point
4th ­ 0 Points

Note: Points are heavily weighted to first place, so much that a win is worth two and a half times as many points as second place.

Game Ending: Winner: Supply electricity to the most cities the final round

Tie Breakers:

1. Most Money.

2. Most Cities.

3. Highest power plant number (added by GM)

Event Sheet: In order for a game to count an event form must be accurately completed recording ALL pertinent info and submitted promptly to the GM. Winners are responsible for seeing that this is accomplished. Event form(s) will be handed out by the GM before play begins.
