Here, you can play the Acquire board game. Many user interface and game play elements are based on Kensit's NetAcquire Windows application. Thank you Kensit for the great design!
Notes regarding passwords:
If you set a password for your username, then your password will be required in order to login.
If you don't set a password for your username, then leave the password field empty in order to login.
You'll probably want to set a password for your username so that only you can use your username.
Notes regarding statistics:
View stats calculated using the TrueSkill algorithm. Default parameters of a TrueSkill library are used except beta is set to sigma and the draw probabilities are set based on historical game results.
See the "How to Build a Leaderboard" section in an article about TrueSkill Details for the reasoning behind the ratings. I set "k" to 3, as suggested in that section.
