Game Power Grid 20101229

I seem to have misplaced the record of this game. I recall Michael won, I came in second, Josh came in third, and Steve came in last. This was the same order as we picked cities, that is, the reverse of the initial turn order.

The game could have turned out much differently depending on various critical "mistakes" in the game.


Elaborating, Josh felt Steve should have made some different choices as to building early game, and that Steve's failure to do so cost Josh the game. He also pointed out an error I made in building placement during the middle of the game. In addition, he pointed out that Steve made an error in power plant buying which would have saved Steve a lot of money.

Finally, Michael pointed out Josh should have run coal dry to prevent Michael's win.

Of course, we could have continued to do this thought experiment and dragged the game on to change the game completely. In hindsight, Michael's move to buy the coal power plant was risky.
