The #OilSpill Board Game

Truth is certainly sometimes stranger than fiction. For instance, does an oil spill board game sound real? In the 1970s, a board game was created for an oil company known at the time as British Petroleum. In that game, called "BP Offshore Oil Strike", players build oil rigs and drill off coastlines and in open water. Then, when the rig explodes, they have to pay a fine and clean it up. Sounds like a fun game, right?
