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

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.

Ex.: 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.

Map choice per heat:

* Heat 1: USA or Central Europe

* Heat 2: Spain/Portugal or China

* Heat 3: France or Brazil

* The semifinal will be played on UK/Ireland, and the Final will be played on the Quebec map.

Format: HMWG

a. Most Wins (e.g., total in all heats entered);
b. Win in first Heat entered;
c. Win in second Heat entered;
d. Win in third Heat entered;
e. Based on points earned.

Players will earn points in each heat they play based upon their finish position as follows:

10 Points
4 Points
2 Points
1 Points
0 Points
Qualifiers will be taken from most points to least points. Your highest point value heat will determine ties; with the highest taking precedence. I.e. If Player A had one win and Player B had two seconds and one third (both total 10 points) then Player A would qualify ahead of Player B. In the event of further tie then high die roll will prevail.

Since Power Grid is played as a 5-player game and 4-player only if necessary, the above points will be used for 5-player games. For 4-player games the points are as follows: First = 10 points; Second = 4 Points; Third = 1 Point; Fourth = Zero Points.

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.

Up to 36 players will advance to the semifinal.

Winner: Supply electricity to the most cities.

Tie Breakers:

1. Most Money.

2. Most Cities.

3. Biggest/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. Event form(s) will be handed out by the GM before play begins.
