  • Great economic and resource management game. A little mathy when trying to add things up but very intense and fun. Best with 4.carbonfiber25August 28th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Power Grid is wonderful next level game for those who have mastered the gateway games. This is a real brain-burner with tons of depth and an amazing auction mechanic thrown in for good measure.BenjoAugust 28th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I love this game, mostly because I'm almost always able to win it! The trick is keeping the perfect balance of all of the elements - oh yeah, and don't worry about staying "environmentally friendly"JesseAugust 26th, 2011 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
