The Game!

Off The Grid is the BEST game of 2019. A massive catastrophe has disabled powerlines across America and Canada. The game revolves actions that need to be taken in order to restore the power grid. Robots may need to clear debris, replace residential and substation transformers, connect powerlines, install conduits, and even autonomously operate in high voltage zones.
