Fear and Loathing: The Board Game

Here's a sure cure for summer boredom. J.R. Baldwin has created a new narcotics-themed board game inspired by Hunter Thompson's drug addled masterpiece, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The rules are simple:

Before the game starts, every player throws in $20. Whoever finishes the game first wins the whole pot of money. Each player rolls the die to see who will go first....There are three different spaces to land on. Yellow means dosing a certain amount of a drug specified by a dosing card. Blue means going on an adventure or doing a fun activity. Red cards are challenges that would be specifically hard for someone to accomplish while on various drugs...Have fun and be safe!

A perfect graduation gift for the college kids in your life. Or maybe you have a friend who is looking for a new start in journalism? The game is only available here.
