Product Description

The term "classic" is often overused, whether applied to films, literature, or games. However, Acquire has been thus described for decades, and is rightly enshrined in GAMES Magazine's Hall of Fame, alongside such American stalwarts as Monopoly, Scrabble, and Diplomacy. And now this American institution is back in a new, improved edition emphasizing a beautiful board and playing pieces depicting highrise hotels and the world's prime real estate.

Acquire is still the same empire-building game which has enthralled several generations of financial strategists. Each player builds and strategically manipulates hotel chains. As each group grows, players invest in them, merging smaller ones into more dominant chains to collect bonuses in a calculated race to acquire the greatest wealth.

Supplementing this time-honored basic game are the addition of five new variations to provide new challenges to veterans of the financial wars. A simple game of complex strategies, Acquire is highly playable by would-be tycoons of all ages.
