Acquire

Categories:  Board Games Hobby Games Multiplayer Games New Games

Acquire is a family game similar to Monopoly but with more skill and less luck. The idea is that you buy shares in companies and the value of the shares increases as the company grows the problem is you can only sell your shares as the company is leaving the board so it is all about spending your money wisely and place the right tile at the right time. with the escalating ‘Oil Price’ the difficulty at losing money at Acquire is a fun relief from reality and can be played by absolutely anyone.
