looks like the game is made by wotc... there was an older version, where they had hotels and stuff, instead of corporations like they do now

It was by Avalon Hill, who was acquired by Wizards of the Coast, who is owned by Hasbro now. I played the original version, trying to get the new one. It was a lot of fun, much more so than Monopoly. I mentioned it in the board game thread a week or two ago.

I own that game, the really old-school seventies version, I wonder if they've updated it since. Really fun board game actually.

Never heard of it. A more mature (by this I mean complex and realistic) version of Monopoly? I'm all for it...once I'm done with this current month long game of Monopoly.

ah, i'll have to search for that thread... i love board games :p let me know if you find a store carrying the new one.

mrvile - it's similar to monopoly in subject (money), not so much in gameplay though... you form corporations and buy shares... there is less emphasis on random chance and more on interaction with other players. also, the game is designed such that it is more or less constantly exciting.

Acquire (Updated Version)

Froogle turns up several places selling it. My local comic and game store has a copy on order, but has had trouble getting that item in before. Not sure if it is that much in demand or if it has gone out of print.

Can't you read? Obviously the game sucks.

Go back to trying to get your name as the last poster in every thread on the front page, moron.

I do not conform to your dietary habits, but please, continue to celebrate your unique and special culinary proclivities. America is a melting pot after all, or a chamber pot in your case.
