Family Fun


An old British 70s boardgame from when BP was still British Petroleum and not Beyond Parody, sorry, meant Beyond Petroleum.

Definitely one for re-release this Xmas. I wonder if the "War on Terror" people are working on a version?

There are apparently oil spill chance cards that cost you money. I wonder if there are "shambolic corporate fat cats that burble around the world making fools of themselves and whining how it's all about them before awarding themselves bonuses" cards? Or maybe a Royal Yacht Squadron card?

Anyone else got any ideas for BP cards?

    Yeah, I know, but not very near me. I live in a London Commuter town. He lives in a rural fat-cat enclave.
