Each player represents a corporation producing electricity in power stations and powering cities via an electricity network. During the game you auction for power stations and buy resources for electricity production while expanding the network to power up more cities. A round has 5 phases: Determine sequence of play, buy power stations, buy resources, building and bureaucracy, which comprises earning money, new power stations and new resources for the market. if a player in phase 4 has connected a minimum of 20 cities, the player with the most connected cities wins. 

For the expansion Northern Europe / United Kingdom & Northern Ireland the basic rules of Funkenschlag apply with the listed changes; resources are available according to special tables.

Nordeuropa: As the states in Northern Europe use very different sources of energy the power stations change with the area you use; Atomic power stations can only be acquired when you have a city in Sweden, Finland or in the Baltic States. When you play with Southern Sweden you can only by Atomic Power Station 10 when you have a minimum of one city in Sweden, Finland or the Baltic States.

UK & Nordirland: You can utilize two separate networks, there is no direct connection between Ireland and Great Britain; Atomic power stations are only possible with cities in Scotland, England Wales or Northern Ireland. In Stage Two there is a different number of cities, it starts with connecting the 7th city or when all cities have been connected for the first time.

As for all expansions for Funkenschlag for this one ,too, the motto is: Want to have it, want to play it!
