Reception[edit]

Jon Mishcon reviewed Computer Acquire in The Space Gamer No. 45.[2] Mishcon commented that "If you enjoy multiparameter games and you're willing to spend twice that time just to learn what does what, then Acquire may be for you. Otherwise wait for the second edition of the rules."[2]
