You’ve seen the box cover on MSNBC and CNN, but now you can actually see the pieces and board of the genuine 1970s “BP Offshore Oil Strike” game. BoardGameGeeks has a full image gallery.
In the game, which bears an official BP logo, four players race to explore for oil, build rigs and lay pipelines. The first to reach $120 million wins. But you have to watch out for the hazard cards like, “Blow-out! Rig damaged. Oil slick cleanup costs. Pay $1 million.”
“No one could have expected this?” Looks like you did, 30 years ago, and turned in into a game that’s fun for the whole family.
