The enclosed game boards for France and Italy may only be played with Power Grid. They are not complete games unto themselves.The rules for play are the same as for Power Grid, except where noted below. Please note that each board (France and Italy) has changes from the original rules.
Currently France has an emphasis on nuclear power.This is reflected in the game by a larger supply of uranium and faster access to the first nuclear power plant. The capital city of Paris is the largest metropolis in the country. Paris is represented as a “triple” city, which makes it an interesting target for power plant owners,but too much emphasis on Paris may be an incautious player's undoing!
In Italy, resources are more limited than elsewhere. Both coal and oil can quickly become both scarce and expensive. Combined with relatively high connecting costs in some parts of the country due to natural geography, players will often find themselves short of cash.
