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.
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!
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!

Acquire is what I would call a 'gateway game'. Most people have played Monopoly, Life, or Sorry. Those board games give board games the name of 'bored' games (don't get me wrong... Read morePublished 2 months ago by BarabbaOr
