#6: Power Grid/Funkenschlag
Frank Hamrick: "I've probably had more pure gaming enjoyment playing this one than any recent release. It is currently flying high due to a 4-player game at the 2004 EuroQuest. It was one of my most satisfying gaming experiences in recent time. An outstanding game that has it all - auctions,buying & selling, expansion, resource management, strategy & tactics."
Jeremy Avery: "I find Power Grid to be a great exercise in number-crunching, fierce competition, and optimal management."
Larry Levy: "Tremendous financial game whose many parts work seamlessly together. Games are always extremely close, so you need to be careful or a single misstep could cost you the win. Balancing the different aspects of the game and timing your break for the finish line correctly are wonderful challenges. I slightly prefer Funk to Power Grid, but they are both great games."
David Fair: "The game is tense throughout, with every decision meaningful. It is a game of inches, filled with angst. I love every moment of every game."
Andrea Meyer: "Friedemann's masterpiece when it comes to complex games. The mechanisms fit each other so neatly and the re-issueing did some good, too."
