  • Challenging game. Lots of fun to play with friends. Competitive play, but not cutthroat.haashouseAugust 29th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Remarkably deep for a game with such abstract mechanics. It somehow keeps invested in the atmosphere.wlievensJuly 24th, 2012 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Investments feature heavily in this game of economics. Trying to choose which hotel to invest in early is hard, but even a wrong choice doesn't doom the game!EricJune 10th, 2012 6 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A new classic that can be taught to a new player in a single round of play; yet the strategy is very deep. It's very fun to play it with friends, but so much more fun to play friends with it!Lambda_RedSeptember 7th, 2011 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Acquire is my personal favorite game. It blends elements of Monopoly and Risk, but no one loses money in the game. The rules are not complicated, but to understand the strategy takes time.Jonny GSeptember 5th, 2011 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • My group of friends played this nearly every day in high school. Its tricky to get that flow of early money, but also be left with the most money at the end. This game makes you nervous as you play.JesseAugust 26th, 2011 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
