I have this game. Whooo! Can't believe it.
Problem now-how best to sell it-because no doubt soon, numerous copies will surface from lofts, cellars and game collections.
What do I do?

For starters, don't try to hastily retrieve it without the proper safety precautions; the container may rupture and spill the pieces.

I find it ironic that this game exists, and highlights the fundamental evil of BP and other drilling companies. Well, I guess I'll hop in my car now and drive over to daycare to pick up my kids.

Just saw this game on the front page of MSN. My 1st instinct was to come to BGG to research.

I wonder how long this will take to get to the top of "The Hotness". :p


It's at the top at this very moment. :)

Irony noted.

From one of the articles:

The picture on the front of the box is so reminiscent to the disaster with the stormy seas, the oil rig and an overall sense of doom.

That made me laugh! I've worked on a lot of the oil rigs in the North Sea and it's pretty much stormy with grey skies most of the time. If fact the box cover looks like a pretty nice day for the North Sea.

Back in the day there were loads of promotional products produced by the oil companies, it's no big deal really.

The Think Progress blog mentions the story (from a while back) and actually links to BGG!
