Acquire is an abstract game that involves the play of tiles on a grid to create hotel chains. Players buy stock in these hotel chains and may be paid dividends when one hotel chain absorbs another.  The aim is to have the highest value in cash and stocks when the game ends. The game can only end when all hotel chains are safe (11 tiles or larger) or any one chain exceeds 40 tiles in size, but will only end if a player declares the game over.  Click here to read the postal rules.  You can also view the information card, which shows the chain values and majority bonuses.

A new version of the game was released in 1995 which included a Special Powers variant, used in some of these games.
