Our annual gaming weekend is on us again. Nick brought Acquire, which I have been wanting to play for some time so four of us settled down for the first game of the weekend.

The mechanism was easy enough to pick up; the tactics took some time longer. I concentrated my early purchases on the larger areas and watched in dismay as the other players picked up bonus after bonus as their companies were merged. By this time I was playing catch-up, unsuccessfully. I managed to block a major merger that would have made things even worse but by the end of the game I had picked up only a single minor bonus and no major ones.

The winner (Paul I believe) came in with around 78,000; I scored just over 20,000. A total disaster.

Hopefully I'll do better next time but I'm not in any great hurry for next time to come! It is a very good game, particularly considering its age, but it hasn't made it onto my buy list yet.

I would say there was a problem with doing anything successfully once you've fallen behind, but I would need to play it more to confirm this.
