What better way to make money than with electric power?!! But how should you go about it? Will you use old school coal or oil? Maybe you'll be on the cutting edge of burning garbage. Nuclear power is tempting, as long as you can obtain uranium. You can always be free from the need for resources if you go the ecological route.
However you decide to generate the energy, you'll have to compete with your opponents not only for the most attractive power plants, but for the necessary resources and the locations to build your network of energy distribution.
You'll need to watch your opponents closely, carefully manage your finances, and expand your network thoughtfully in order to generate income. The player that is able to build the largest network AND successfully power it will win the game.
Power Grid Recharged has all the strategy and fun of the classic first edition, but adds some updates that improve upon (already great) gameplay.
