In this episode of The Long View, I'm pleased to be joined by first time contributor Gene-Paul Viking as we discuss his favorite game, Acquire, the venerable classic by designer Sid Sackson. How is it that a game from 1964 is still so well regarded that it's still rated in the top 200 in this age of the age of the "cult of the new"? What makes this game special? What challenges face new players? What are the best strategies to use? Listen to hear the answers to these questions and more from my special guest in this episode!
