If you think Monopoly is boring and Cluedo lacks a certain je-ne-sais-quoi, give Fear and Loathing: The Board Game a try.

Fear and Loathing: The Board Game

Loosely based on Hunter J. Thompson’s seminal piece of gonzo-journalism, jrbaldwin created a riveting mix of drug ingestion and outdoor activity.

Let’s take a quick look at the rules: Land on a yellow space, and you have to ingest a certain drug (THC, LSD, Amyl Nitrite, etc.) as specified by its dosage card (a scale is included in the game). Land on a blue space, and perform an activity such as “30 minutes of wandering anywhere within the area you are playing the game”. Land on a red space, and you must complete a challenge like “Program the DVD or VCR player”. Yes, that’s a challenge, more so if you’ve already landed on a yellow space before. It’s designed to play over a weekend, so plenty of time to sober up I guess.

If you think of buying this as a christmas present or whatever, you’re in for a surprise. For now it’s just a work of art with one copy in existence. Which can be yours for 3500 USD. No, the substances that come with the game are not real, hu-ho.
