I read the rules on the winning condition and I check on forums for that also. What are the winning conditions of a game of "power grid deluxe"?
In the following Phase 5 (Bureaucracy) players do not earn money for powering cities. Instead, they check to see which player supplies electricity to the most cities in his network using the resources and power plants he has. This is the number of cities he normally earns cash from during this phase. This player that can power the most cities wins the game! If there is a tie, the player with the most remaining money wins. In rare cases, a player may win the game with more cities in his network than necessary to end the game
There's a confusion on the "supplies electricity" conditions that I see on forum and in the manual. Because there's 2 supply electricity measurement, there's the raw supply electricity and there's the effective one.
What I mean is that you could power up to 20 cities (raw) but if you only have 13 cities on you end up powering 13 cities ( effective).
So what measurement is the right one? The raw or effective one? I will leave an example and you tell me who should win the game:
P1, 20 power supplies capacity, 12 cities connected, can power up to 20 cities. P2, 15 supplies capacity, 13 cities, can power up to 14.
