In the beginning, the companies are small. But they grow. And merge. And reform. And merge again. Those who buy the right stocks and merge the right companies thrive. Those that don't, fall behind.
This classic business game has never looked better. An all plastic board with plastic tiles that fit snugly to it add a three dimensional quality that brings the game to life. Now corporations are capped with skyscrapper roofs that create a mini skyline. The companies have been renamed to reflect a 21st century economy but no rules have changed.
The game can be learned in minutes. Which tile to play, which company to invest in, and when to merge two companies is a skill that takes many games to master.
I have spent hours of fun playing aquire since 1976 with friends and family. No game is the same and enough thought mixed with chance to make the game fun for everyone.
This game makes my top 5 list of games to own and play. I am a computer junkie and yet this board game still comes out to the table to be played. It is also one of games we take along on vacation.
My husband and I have owned this game for 27 years we have over 50 score sheets dating back to 1978. There is strategy involved but also luck. Everyone we have introduced to this game enjoys it and wants to play again. It will always be our favorite board game.
I own all 3 versions of this game. I bought the original 3M bookshelf game when i was a teenager and have played it ever since. My daughter is a fanatic on it, she comments that it is never the same game twice. I have even written a macro in Excel to do the final calculations. A great game.
