Classic Game Acquire will be re-released this year by Renegade

The classic board game Acquire will receive a new edition later this year. Renegade Game Studio announced that they have reached a new licensing deal with Hasbro to release the classic board game Acquire, originally designed by Sid Sackson and released in 1964. Playing the game places tiles on a 3D board, with each set of tiles representing a different hotel chain. Players can choose whether to start new hotel chains, grow an existing hotel chain, or merge two hotel chains. When a hotel chain is taken over by another hotel, players earn money based on the amount of inventory they have in a chain. The game ends when a chain takes up 40% or more of the board or when all hotel chains on the board become too large for another to acquire. The player with the most money and stock value at the end of the game wins.

Acquire has long been a popular board game, with many praising its surprisingly deep strategy. The game has released several editions over the years, but has been mostly dormant since 2006, when Hasbro released a controversial new edition with a smaller board.

Renegade announced it would bring back Acquire original board format in the new edition and would also host a championship tournament at Gen Con to celebrate the game’s relaunch.

Renegade has signed licensing agreements with Hasbro to release several popular but mostly dormant board games. Notably, Renegade is now the publisher of Axis and allies and will publish reprints of previous versions of the game. It also reached licensing deals for Robo rally And Diplomacy.
