Oggie turned up with the game whilst Paul ably described the Rules. Pity I wasn't really taking it in, as usual.

I loved the look of the game and I loved the balancing of all the resources.

Oggie won by a country mile and froze for a shot of his Obama Victory pose. He might take a while to choose his move but in this instance it paid off.

I think I need to check out those tiles and fathom what the key ones to buy are!

I've uploaded 3 pics, so by all means, if you can edit the image, have a look at the other ones.

We'll have to have words with Oggie's clowns. They're obviously whispering some decent tactics to him.

This was my second game in three days, and a bit of an exercise in chalk and cheese. On Sunday, I got off to a flier and saw income increasing turn on turn. Today, it all went horribly wrong. So badly wrong that income on my second turn was only 14. Oops.

A decent game, though not in the same class as Powergrid.
