Searching for a game

A game by the name of “Offshore Drilling”, popular in the late 70’s or early 80s. A friend wants to surprise her husband with it for Christmas, but she can’t find it— and googling it is absolutely useless.

Did you hear of it, and if so, where can it be found?

Here you go.

If you want a game that’s fun to play about oil companies I’d go with McMulti but it is long out of print and very sought after.

If you want something about oil drilling that’s a bit more easy to find and has some of the wildest board game components ever made there’s also King Oil.

Wildcatter is another one that might interest you.

Thanks a lot! I’ll pass on the info. Dopers are the best!

Yeah, sorry for taking so long to get that answer for you. I missed your post on the first pass.

There’s one available on ebay

Wow, Peter Morris, thanks.

Just Some Guy, I had to laugh when I read that you apologized for taking so long. I didn’t expect answers so soon.
