Disclaimer: I know there's already been some discussion on this topic, but I'm going to ask the question anyway because I've never played the game before, and thus, have yet to use my copy of Power Grid in the context of actually playing the game.
What are some general tips for people who have never played before to get started and have an actual idea of what they're doing in Power Grid? Also, what are some tips for explaining the game to people who have also never played the game before?
P.S. Sorry if this question seems like it's been asked before (and thus, horribly redundant), and altogether a dumb question
