Hasbro unveils new edition of Acquire


The last edition of Acquire was released back in 2008 by Avalon Hill/Hasbro and featured all cardboard components, with the buildings being cardboard chits.  Fast forward to today and Hasbro has just let loose images of the very soon to be released 2016 version of the game, and they are going for broke on this one.  The cardboard buildings have been replaced with 3D plastic models, with each company in the game getting a unique building and the rest are generic office buildings.  So now you will have something nice to look at as you invest and merge companies to gain the most wealth.  Look for this edition of the game is stores this month.

I'm an engineer manager by day, board game entusiast by night. I will play most anything once but I love adventure style games and cooperative games, or just playing games with my wife. Games like the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, TIME Stories, and 7th Continent really hit on all those marks for me and I love discovering new gems.
