BP board game foreshadows Gulf disaster
LONDON -- An obscure BP-themed board game in which players aim to avoid rig disasters has become an unexpected hit at a British toy museum.
BP Offshore Oil Strike was released in the early 1970s and allows up to four players to explore for oil, build platforms and construct pipelines. The first player to earn $120,000,000 wins. Its "hazard cards" include "Blow-out! Rig damaged. Oil slick clean-up costs. Pay $1million."
