A great relic from the 1970s: a board game commissioned by BP where each of the four players pretend to be oil tycoons competing for leases in the North Sea. Players can build rigs, run pipelines and rack up sums of cash, but must beware the dreaded hazard card which reads, “Blow-out! Rig damaged. Oil slick clean-up costs. Pay $1million.” They may have underestimated the cost a bit. The cleanup in the gulf has cost BP over $3 billion so far.
