This Sid Sackson classic has taken many different forms over the years depending on the publisher. Each player strategically invests in businesses, trying to retain a majority of stock. As the businesses grow with tile placements, they also start merging, giving the majority stockholders of the acquired business sizable bonuses, which can then be used to reinvest into other chains. All of the investors in the acquired company can then cash in their stocks for current value or trade them 2-for-1 for shares of the newer, larger business. The game is a race to acquire the greatest wealth.
Some versions of the 3M bookshelf edition included rules for a 2-player variant.

At the end of the game, just fill in number of tiles of each hotel then scroll up and fill in the player names and the amount of stock they own. WALA. There you have the Major and Minority Shareholder bonus and also the cash they get if they were to sell the stocks away. Not to forget, include the amount of cash they have in hand in the allocated column and there you have the winner of the game!!!
