No bells and whistles, just a fascinating set of strategic and tactical problems. So much to think about on every play! Including: the cards available for purchase; what you need at the moment; the capital combinations in your hand; adding to your collection now vs waiting for a better combination; the value of reorganization; whether you're tempting a theft; when you should use a proxy. Few games offer so much to think about within simple rules.

I absolutely love this game. Although it is American in origin it plays and scores very much like a German game. Since it predates the German game craze I can not help but feel that it was a leader in this type of game. I had a 3M version but about a year ago I lent it out never to see it again. I was lucky enough to find a German version, Wirtschafts Wunder, recently and the world is much brighter. I think this game ranks up there with Acquire as Sid Sackson's finest.

Great little game that like most Sid Sackson games, has held up extremely well over time.

Surprisingly deep for a small-box old-school Avalon Hill game.

Another of 3M's beloved finance plots (here it's all about speculation) fortunately doesn't get on the way of this complex but very accessible card game. As often happens with Sid Sackson's creations, rich play is squeezed out of a handful of rules - some of the delicacies here are the way weak cards can be joined to become more powerful than strong cards, the way restrictions at combining bought industries lead the player to surprising choices, the tactical use of reorganization against opponents trying to pinch industries off you, and the way evaluations can appear at every turn. All immaculately balanced, hence the better player wins regardless of the odd card draw.

Venture guarantees fun and tense play every time - even though it's not a game to play twice in a row, after one round I'm always looking forward to the next one. A deserved classic, and arguably one of the summits of Sid Sackson's already impressive output.

Why is this game out of print? Seriously?

There is so much that is great about this game.

The cards are brilliantly designed so that all the information is on them, be it the money cards or the company cards. The game is full of decisions on all kinds of levels.

So good. So worth playing.

Classic Sackson card game. Deserves more praise and a nice reprint. That being said there are a few tweaks mentioned in the forums that make it more gamerly in the modern sense that I do like to use.
