BP Board Game Is Eerily Ironic

Posted Jul 11, 2010

In the 1970s, there was a board game that was endorsed by BP where players manage an offshore drilling operation. The object of the game was to avoid hazard cards that causes gamers to deal with clean-up costs and rig explosions. The discontinued game was created by Scottish gaming company Printabox. Given the oil spill tragedy that happened in the Gulf, this board game has officially become eerily ironic. I stopped going to BP gas stations to buy anything from them as my own personal protest.
