What's a Power Game you say? I'll fill you in. Back in the early days of VGA Planets on the web there used to be a site called Spaceport Hamburg
and it was run by a fellow named Armin Trott aka "Nikita". He's the creator of the Power Game. In Armin's own words "It was always my intention to stretch VGA Planets to the maximum. the result are my power games, which do not only include a highly customized shiplist, but also a whole lot of addons". Once Armin went offline these types of games shifted over to a site called Spaceport Andromeda and now we're running them here from time to time.
As Armin mentioned the game uses a lot of addons. Jupiter
, AB Host
. Each of these addon's can contribute a lot to a game all on it's own. However when you add all 5 to the mix you've got something special indeed.
These games seem to intimidate a lot of players, veterans and newb's alike, and you have nothing to worry about. I wouldn't recommend a Power Game to a first time player, just because they have to learn VGA Planets first. However, if you have a couple of VGAP games under your belt, then you're ready for a Power Game. It's high energy, has lots of surprises and is fun.
With that said, I haven't played a game of VGAP in about a year or two. I've joined the game as the Robots and your host is issuing a challenge to everyone. Come get some.
