Rio Grande Games will release  Power Grid: France & Italy, an expansion for Power Grid: Recharged or Power Grid, into retail on July 29.

Power Grid: France & Italy comes with two all-new maps to add to Power Grid: Recharged or Power Grid. It also features small rule changes to reflect the power culture in these countries. France uses nuclear power, and starts on atomic plants earlier and has more uranium. Italy produces more waste than other countries, and has less coal and oil.

This expansion supports two to six players and play in 90 to 120 minutes. It will retail for $14.95.

Rio Grande Games also released the Power Grid Expansion: Brazil/Spain & Portugal in a collector's box (see “Rio Grande Expands 'Power Grid' “).
