Game Power Grid 20101222

On an early turn I didn't buy enough resources. I didn't know what I was thinking. I didn't buy resources thinking it wouldn't profit, but the jump in money would have been a profit. That sort of error happens in my board game thinking every so often (more specifically, I'll make a decision thinking it has certain consequences, only to realize that I miscalculated).

One round I bought too much, and I could have made the burst for a win a turn earlier than when I did end the game. And when I did end the game, since I had made a big commotion about being close to winning, everybody rushed to get what they needed.

Therefore, while the posted score shows a close game, it was possible for me to win uncontested. Though here's a different hypothetical. If Steve had bought two fewer cities, would the money he would have saved been enough to win? Possibly, but not necessarily, because I would have saved some money too.

2554 board and market I think this is close to the end game, but comparing it with the next picture, there are less resources. Thus, we must have realized this is the last turn, let's buy the resources we need to supply.
