Yes, Reiner Knizia does revisit some of his or others' ideas time after time. The question is, is that a problem if he can add something new to the idea again and again?

This is about games that use some or more ideas from a non-Knizia game: Acquire by Sid Sackson.

I would never call them "clones" or "reworkings" though as they are rather different from Aquire in several aspects - but they do use some of the Acquire ideas. What I mean is that they are usually far more different from Acquire than, say, Wolfgang Kramer's Big Boss which is like Acquire with added "levels" or Chinatown which adds negotiation to the basics.
