I hate this game. I hate it with a vengeance. I've played the supposedly simple tutorial game something like thirty times and only beaten it once and it's... so... frustrating!


I wouldn't hate it if the rule set was impenetrable. It isn't. There's only one goal (earning money in a fictional and highly unrealistic "market") and only two ways of doing it (takeover bonuses and share price increases), both of which are simple and transparent. You only do two things in the game, really, one of which is semi-random and the other of which seems straightforward. So how can I keep losing? The tactics are not nearly as straightforward as you'd think...

This is just a computer version of Acquire. I use to play Acquire a lot. And I generally won.

Oh I see, I thought it'd be suitable for a board game. Well, I've got a bit better at it now too.
