Lloyd's Rules of ACQUIRE


ACQUIRE is a fantastic game, and a huge tribute to the intellect of Sid Sackson. Yet, after my first experience with the game, I felt that the rules needed some adjustments to increase the ability of the game to attract new players. I wanted the game to have a broader appeal to more of my friends. The more friends I could get to enjoy the game, the more chances I had to play the game.  I accomplished this by creating a way for players to stay involved in the game even if the didn't have any money. I also created a level playing field for obtaining stock while at the same time increasing the strategic maneuvering of stock purchasing.

Lloyd's Rules of ACQUIRE allows trading of stock when a player is out of money. The player can get rid of stocks that do not help the player and trade them for stocks that are more important within their portfolio. It allows these players to try and maintain majorities in the companies that are most important. It also allows the ability for players to invest on every turn, to potentially increase their portfolio, without the fear of being "stuck" with those purchases when they are ultimately out of money.

Lloyd's Rules of ACQUIRE eliminates the 2- for-1 trade rule when companies merge. In the corporate world of hostile takeovers, is is very seldom that the conquering company offers the shareholders of the vanquished company a cut-rate bargain for the stocks of the conquering company. The 2-for-1 trade creates the possibility for a person who holds majority in a conquering company to lose that majority to numerous shareholders because they decided to sacrifice their small company. It decreases the strategy level of obtaining majorities and skews the game into more of a factor of luck. In Lloyd's Rules of ACQUIRE, the players of the vanquished company are given payouts for their companies, and their shares, and they can invest wherever they choose when it is their turn.
