Power Grid is the update of the Friedemann Friese Funkenschlag pencil set. It removes the pencil aspect of network construction in the original edition, while keeping the market for fluctuating raw materials like crude oil and the auction a round intensity reminiscent of the princes of Florence.
The goal of Power Grid is to provide most cities with electricity when someone's network grows to a predetermined size. In this new edition, players mark pre-existing routes between cities for connection, then clash against each other to buy the power plants they use to power their cities.
However, as the plants are purchased, newer, more efficient factories become available, so by simply purchasing, you potentially allow others to have access to superior equipment.
In addition, players must acquire the raw materials (coal, oil, garbage and uranium) necessary to supply these factories (with the exception of the “renewable” wind farm which does not require fuel) For maximum efficiency while keeping enough wealth to quickly expand your network to get the cheapest routes.
