From the publisher's website :-
After Power Grid taught you the tough competition between energy producers, now you get to know the road traveled by energy consumers.
Start to be a Factory Manager and make the important decisions to improve your own factory. Fight against the other competitors for the best factory equipment available in the market to be the best player at the end of the game.
Power Grid - Factory Manager is a Business-Buildup-Game. You start with a small factory and try to improve it. At the beginning you may simply focus on increasing the production. Later you are confronted with new challenges: track the ever increasing energy price and cleverly distribute your workers for the best benefit.
By being close to the theme, the game is logical and coherent in its main features. A clever new mechanism improves the game by affecting the player order and the actions on the market.
But don’t say we did not warn you: Because of only 5 turns the game is exciting right from the start. Be careful all the time or your fellow players will mercilessly leave you behind!
