Welcome to ACQUISITION Games.  The 500 MEGAcquire games have become history with thousands of true ACQUIRE fans being able to experience the excitement of an expanded and enhanced game experience.  The ACQUISITION Games website is still your source for Vintage ACQUIRE game parts and Vintage ACQUIRE Games and enhancements.  After two attempts to reproduce MEGAcquire in the form of MEGAcquisitions, it has been decided to change direction and produce the game of ACQUISITIONS.  It will be an exciting new adventure for the ACQUIRE fan.

My husband, brother and I are so into this game. We are really addicted to playing it. You made a fabulous game. In fact this is the game we consistently play now. We are all retired and do play the game 3 to 4 times a week about three games every time we play. You did a great job developing it and can't wait to see what you are doing to the newer one.

MEGAcquire is a tribute to Sid Sackson's legendary ACQUIRE, in honour of it's 50th anniversary this year.  The board is bigger than ACQUIRE's ever was, but that's not all that's changed.  The board is now hex-based, making the topography of your companies more interesting.  Despite the authors assertions of the opposite, I am still slightly worried about licensing troubles looming ahead.  I sincerely hope MEGAcquire will be considered different enough from the original to avert that because I'd really like to see this game in stores.

We absolutely love, love, love the game.  My wife and I have been playing acquire together for years--and I played for many years before that.  I have taught many people the game, and so, of course, we had to purchase MEGAcquire!  In many ways it was like playing a brand new game that was very familiar to us.  We loved learning the new names of companies and their cost, seeing the board in a new way with it's new tile design--and the "Lloyd’s rules" that allow for trading of stock to 'purchase' new stock changes the game in a wonderful way.  14 companies / 12 tiles / $12,000.00 to start / infinite trading / purchasing options -- Oh, yeah!  We are so excited to teach all our friends!  Thank you for making this game, it has renewed our passion for our most favorite game ever!

We just played the first copy I bought from you when the original run first came out.  It was a great experience.  We have played the 1999 version for many years at an annual beach trip and found MEGAcquire to be much more engaging for everyone right down to the count of the money at the end.  Thanks for the efforts you've made and thank you for a great game.

I am very glad to have purchased the MEGAcquire, my friends and I have played many hours and we really enjoy de game, as much as we have decided to purchase 2 more games in a few days.  We want to thank you a lot for improving and enhancing the game at that level.  I really appreciate your work and your fine intentions.

First I would like to quickly say Congratulations!  I received my copy of Megacquire and it is everything I expected and more.  I am very pleased with the size of the board and the production value of the components.  I understand it has been a long and difficult journey to get to this point, so again, Congratulations and thank you for all you done to share MEGAcquire.

Played the first time last evening.  The game ran 2 hours plus or minus 15 minutes.  It went smoothly and proved to be quite well balanced.  With three players, the winner and second place finisher were well within a range of $10,000 with the big loser $50,000 behind.  The last place player played ultra-conservatively and passed up many chances to make mergers, many of which would have been very beneficial to them.  You did a fine job Lloyd, taking a fairly good game and improving greatly upon it.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all the effort you put into making MEGAcquire happen.  It is an amazing game and a great upgrade from the original.  I am a huge Acquire fan and now an even bigger MEGAcquire fan.  This is the best game I have ever played.  You did a great job designing the entire game.  Just one thought, I think the Solon corp. should have been one of the highest value corporations.  You did a great job and I would definitely sponsor any future projects you were involved with.  I highly recommend this game.

Love the game, especially the cards.

~Lubbock, Texas

Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know I received the game and Lloyd's Rules.  We have played one game already and really like the mega layout.  My family and I had just played several games of the original ACQUIRE over Christmas holiday and had lamented that there weren't more hotel chains, and that you couldn't sell or trade stock in the middle of a cashless turn.  So we searched the internet for other games to play and found your website.  You answered practically every suggestion we thought would make the game better.  Thank you for sharing your work with us.

I believe my mom just ordered MEGAcquire from you as well.  I think she was jealous of all the fun we had.

I would like to extend my congratulations to you on the success that you have had with the creation of this game.  I cannot express my happiness at receiving my copy.  I just finished playing a game with my friends and we all agree it is a wonderful game that we have enjoyed playing, and are in fact planning to play tomorrow as well as this weekend.  Also I have a rules question.  The Rule book seems to say the tiles used to determine who goes first are returned to the bag and then we draw our 12 tiles before play starts which leads to the person who goes first playing on an empty board.  Is that what you intended or are the tiles used to determine the first player then placed on the board for the start of play?  Thank you.  I want to reiterate that I am very happy to own a copy of this truly unique game.  P.S. I won our first game $114,200 to $110,900 to $68,200.

Note from the creator: The intention is for the board to be empty for the first player. However, players can choose to start the game either way.

First off, I want to thank you for pushing forward with this project and creating a new version of Acquire, which is unique and challenging.  Acquire is a huge game in my family, I've been playing it since I was 8.  I love the game and was so excited when you launched the campaign.  My copy, #91 of 500 came today and I couldn't wait to open it up and get some people over to play it.  And we did play it.  It was awesome and brought just enough unique twists, to a game that I've played practically all my life, to make it seem like a new experience.  Again, the game is awesome and I can't express how grateful I am to you for making this new version of one of my favorite games.
