The text issue aside, the board is really neat. The piping under the buildings, and cars on the roads just make it that much more visually interesting. With the characters painted, no one seemed to have major issues reading/placing their tiles. Keep in mind that I had two people over 60, with poor vision. So, the text isn't that unreadable (with painting).
As others said, the paper money is nothing special, but it does its job. It lets you buy and sell stocks. Replace it if you don't like it. I may, some time in the future. Monopoly money or poker chips could work. Either way, it wasn't a major issue for the enjoyment of the game.
In my copy I got two 3C tiles, and a few warped tiles. I am in the process of getting them replaced. I will update this post if the company falls through on replacing them. Even with these issues, gameplay was not negatively affected. The game was still fun to play.
I am not a purist that is bothered by minutia. I am someone that was nostalgic for the days when I played Acquire with friends when I was younger. I wanted something other than the cardboard board, and this version gave me exactly what I was looking for. Could it have been better, sure, but it was worth it to me.
As for improvements that I would suggest factory painting of the board's text (if possible), and better quality control for the tiles. Most of the tiles were fine, but more than a few were warped. These issues would put the game at about 3.5 stars, with nostalgia bumping it up to 4. I like the theming, and general attempted design. Please just try to fix the issues I mentioned above.
Update 2/15/2017: The company sent the replacement pieces. They arrived fairly quickly, and were in good shape. I will bump my rating up to a solid 4, simply for the quick and helpful customer service. I don't plan to move it any higher, mostly due to the extra effort on my part to make the board's text easier to read. Would I buy it again? Sure, any person that simply enjoys playing the game would if they didn't have a copy.
Would be a 5 star review if it werent for the aforementioned issues with the legibility.
