Board gaming - Power Grid
An enjoyable way of filling the evening, though I prefer something like Battle Star Galactica as a more co-operative game.
Limited resources to power your power stations and increasing prices for the more popular fuels make for a close game, with whoever currently has the most cities getting first choice when buying power stations, but last choice when buying fuel and building cities.
Overall - a good game, and well worth another play. Oh, and the board is double-sided, so there are a couple of different challenges in the layout of the country you're populating (Germany or the USA).
