The new player has joined your game. The other player in our game is "divinem".

Once you've decided there are enough players in your game you can click once on the "START" button.

Since I'm only playing a 2-person game for this example, we can start.

Game Begins / Determine Player Order

The Game begins! The player order is determined randomly. The regions used on the game board are also selected randomly by the game software. Regions that are out of play have all of their cities covered with clouds.

As a reminder, the phases in a round in Power Grid are:

  • Determine player turn order
  • Auction power plants
  • Buy raw materials
  • Building
  • Bureaucracy

The player at the top of the list on the far right is first to bid on a power plant. The Power Plant Market window appears.
