power grid card Power Grid is an amazing game that combines area control with financial mechanics such as auctioning and supply and demand.  However, it can take quite a while to play which can keep it from hitting the table as often as players who love the game would like it to.  Well, Rio Grande Games will release a new version that will allow gamers to enjoy the Power Grid theme in a quicker, easier format. Legendary board game designer Friedmann Friese has created Power Grid: The Card Game, which will include the auction and resource mechanics of Power Grid and Power Grid Deluxe, just without the maps.  The game can be played by 2-6 players in under 60 minutes, intensifying the tension of it's predecessors. I for one am excited about this because shorter game play equals more games of Power Grid!  For more on Power Grid: The Card Game, click here.
