The MEGAcquire GOLD 1963 World Map Conversion Kit allows a quantity of 120 stock certificates to be shuffled and randomly dealt out to the players before the beginning of game play. The amount of each company stock to be distributed is listed on the information cards. The rest of the certificates are kept in the bank for purchase during the game. Players can only purchase two stock certificates per turn. All stocks begin at the same price level.
This concept allows mystery during the entire game as to the holdings of all players. it is harder to establish strategy for gaining majority when the available amounts of stock vary and the knowledge of other players' holdings are unknown. The decision for choosing a company to open is predicated on the hand that is held from the original dealing of stock.
Since players are only allowed to purchase two stock certificates per turn, their money supply will usually last longer. Most players never run out of money throughout the entire game. The other benefit derived from the lower amount of stock purchases is that the players' ability to make quicker decisions for purchase is enhanced. therefore, the rest of the players are not waiting as long for others to finish their turns.
Play your game of MEGAcquire GOLD in a manner that allows mystery. With the MEGAcquire GOLD World Map Conversion Kit, the future meets the past.
