Remember the Steve Jackson Game - The Illuminati?

Question  Remember the Steve Jackson Game - The Illuminati?
Note: I may have put this in the wrong section. I wasn't sure since it dealt with board games AND BP. So I made a judgment call. If it is wrong, please move it into the right place.

I remember back a few years ago the Spaceman had done a show based on the board game The Illuminati. I just happened to run across this board game that was put out 35 years ago by BP no less and deals with the Oil Business. It is also alluded to that the game predicts the Oil Spill tragedy that took place back on April 20 of this year.

Here is the article:

BP board game foreshadows Gulf disaster

LONDON -- An obscure BP-themed board game in which players aim to avoid rig disasters has become an unexpected hit at a British toy museum.

BP Offshore Oil Strike was released in the early 1970s and allows up to four players to explore for oil, build platforms and construct pipelines. The first player to earn $120,000,000 wins.

Its "hazard cards" include "Blow-out! Rig damaged. Oil slick clean-up costs. Pay $1million."

BP announced Monday that it has spent $3.12 billion dealing with the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The game was recently donated to the House on the Hill Toy Museum in Stansted, Essex.

"The parallels between the game and the current crisis... are so spooky," museum owner Alan Goldsmith told Britain's Metro newspaper. "The picture on the front of the box is so reminiscent to the disaster with the stormy seas, the oil rig and an overall sense of doom.

"I was just knocked over by how relevant this game is, despite being made some 35 years ago, to BP’s troubles today."

Goldsmith said the game is worth about £75 ($115).

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag and begin slitting throats. H. L. Mencken

Check this out, put it together a while back...


So I thought I would upload something a bit different to mix things up. Im sure some of you have heard of the Card Playing/Trading game called Illuminati by Steve Jackson, or are atleast familiar with 2 of the cards from the game; those being the one of what looks like the Twin Towers and something hitting them, and the other of the Pentagon in flames after being hit by something. Now you must realize, this game was made in 1995!!! Also, while making this game in 1990, the offices of Steve Jackson games were raided by U.S. Secret Service. It looks like they specifically targeted the Illuminati game files and information. Heres a link all about it...

What was the Secret Service so interested in? Or what did they want to hide so badly? Well heres a video I put together of some of the most interesting cards in the game. Remember this was made in 1995. Heres a link to a website that gives descriptions and possible explanations for each card in the game...
