Description from the packaging.

At last... the classic board game Acquire is now on computer. Voted into Games Magazine's "Hall of Fame," Acquire's high standards of fun, strategy, and greed are re-created on the IBM and IBM compatibles.

In Acquire, players buy hotels, create chains, and trade stock in those chains to become the richest player in the game. The rules are simple and the possible winning strategies unlimited in this fast paced game.

Computer Acquire has all this and more:

  • Clear, easy to read graphics.
  • Menu driven commands.
  • A variety of computer players.
  • Microsoft Mouse compatible.

The game supports from 2 to 6 players in any combination of human or computer players you wish. The broad range of strategies employed by the computer players makes for hours of challenging play while the natural player interface makes game play simple and easy to learn.

A typical game can be played in well under an hour, though a game in progress can be saved at any point. This, of course, allows you to get some work done on your computer without seriously interrupting the game...

Computer Acquire requires an IBM compatible with 256K of memory or more. All graphics modes are supported and the use of a Microsoft mouse is optional.
