It's two-for-one Acquire...!

GAME TITLE:  Acquire
TEACHER:  PhotoJim
START TIME:  6:30
DURATION: 2 hours
# OF PLAYERS: 6
URL: Acquire


GAME TITLE: Megacquire (aka Megacquisitions)
TEACHER: PhotoJim
START TIME: 8:30
DURATION: 3 hours
# OF PLAYERS: 6
URL: Megacquire


First, at 6:30 we'll play Acquire, Sid Sackson's 1962 masterpiece that remains as fun to play today as ever.  Highly strategic, a simple mechanism to simulate supply and demand effects and inside information results in a really captivating game.  Plus, it's game entry #5 on Boardgame Geek so you can put a check mark by a very early game on the BGG list.  :)  You definitely want to give it a try if you've not played it before, and I know it's a favourite of quite a lot of SaskGames folk.

At 8:30 we'll play Megacquire which is being renamed Megacquisitions.  This is Lloyd Solon's reimagining of Acquire, using a hexagonal grid instead of a square one, which really changes the strategy.  This is a limited edition game that's not too common in the wild but I managed to find a copy and would finally like to give it a try.  This will be my first playing, but the gameplay is very similar to Acquire.  If you've tried Acquire and enjoyed it you will likely want to give Megacquire a try.

I'm estimating a bit on the playtime for Megacquire but since Wednesday is Remembrance Day, most of us shouldn't need to be in bed too early.

People are welcome to sign up to one or the other or, of course, both.  I'll run them as long as a minimum of four people sign up.
