This is a fun game of strategy that pays uniquely different each time.

We have this same game but it was made in 1967, we just thought the newer version would be more up with the times but we like the old one much better!!

The cardboard pieces of this game will not hold up to use and will slide around the board easily.

The other reviews are correct, there are other versions of this great game that will hold up better and are better looking. However, I would want to make sure that anyone who doesn't already own this great game is aware that the game itself is a lot of fun and there are many variations/rules variants that can also keep it fresh for long time players. If you haven't tried partnership Acquire, give it a try, it's a whole different game.

For those not familiar with the game, there are tiles that are placed on the game board. When two or more are joined, they form a hotel chain. Only 6 hotel chains can exist on the board at a time, so certain tiles can become unplayable for a period of time. When a tile is played that connects two hotels, they are merged with the longer chain taking over the smaller. If they are the same size, the person playing the merging tile determines which chain takes over.

The subtleties of the game make it one of the true gems of boardgames. Sid Sackson developed the original version about 50 years ago and hundreds, if not thousands, of games have been developed since that in same ways have employed some of the mechanics and strategic elements of this game. Each player has unique information about the future growth of the hotels and the upcoming mergers. They can each take advantage of this but of course, other players can observe what they do and infer what information they have...

If you haven't played this game, you should definitely try it out. You may later find yourself searching on ebay for one of the earlier versions, but this will certainly be a great addition to your games closet if you don't already have it!

I'm a long time Acquire fan. My friends and I played it for many long hours for years. So I was delighted to see that it had been reissued.

The new version is a huge disappointment. The tiles, trays to hold each player's tiles, and the tiles that indicate a hotel are all cardboard. Worse, they are cardboard that you will have to pop out of a card.

The earlier versions had a board to hold the tiles that had a slot for each tile, which was much more effective.

With the current version, the tiles slide around the board dont' stay in place.

There is no place to hold the cash, so in the box it just slides around. There is no scoring card.

The shares for each hotel chain are very fancily printed, but the printing is so fancy that it is hard to tell which hotel chain the share is for without reading carefully. A simple use of color would have fixed this.

I'm glad I have a copy of the game so I can play with my kids, but its a very cheap design.

I ordered this product after some consideration. I had played the original Avalon-Hill version with a friend who had a copy from his childhood. The game itself is fun and different from other finance games. On the older version that I played, the game tiles were plastic and fit into a grid to prevent slippage. On the new version, the game tiles are made of a cardstock and there is no grid. This is an annoying difference only when you are trying to play a game near animals or small children. Otherwise it's fine. This version of the game is available at a lesser cost than any of the originals on Ebay, so if you want it, snap it up while it's available!

I have the original version of this game which is almost 40 years old. I wanted to get a new game because mine is worn. I was so disappointed when I opened this game. It is the cheapest version of a game that I have ever seen. Everything is cardboard! The game I have has a nice plastic board with slots in it for each peg to fit in, much like the top version of scrabble. The pegs in my old game are much like the scrabble pegs also.

The new game is all cardboard. Everything cardboard! The board, the pegs, the trays...cardboard. I am so disheartened. I thought I was getting a newer and better version of my favorite game of all times. I ordered three of them and another one for my brother's birthday. I returned them.

If you can find the old version of this game, by all means grab it. It is the best game ever!

well, we played this game last night at my house.We have all the versions.Our aquire group(4 couples) was countiong the days until we could play the new version. This cardbord copy of the 1999 edition is as entertaining as the original, however it lacks the 3d feel of earlier versions. I personally do not like it as much.This game introduced 2 new things: a tile holder (good Ignovation) and the hotels are 2 pices long instead of 1. However having the 1999 version(our favorite by far) we will never play this new version again.

This is a horrible edition of an awesome game. You will have more fun buying one of the original bookshelf versions, as the design of this game is an injustice to it's storied history. Why Hasbro doesn't actually produce a quality version with a separated game board, I will never understand. The original, and the 1999 versions are extremely durable and playable. The only redeeming quality of this version is the stock certificates, which are finally made of durable laminated paper. Hasbro could easily sell a quality version for a premium price. If you cannot find another version - this is still one of the best board games ever. But spend your money on an original - readily available on auction sites.

P.S. I have almost every version available - including 2 German versions. Great game - horrible waste of cardboard.
