In Crude: The Oil Game, players take on the role of oil company CEOs, seeking to expand their companies into multi-national energy mega-corporations. Just as with real world energy companies, player will setup facilities for oil drilling, pumping, refining into gasoline, and selling to the consumer – all of which are represented by actual plastic pieces placed on the board!
Players also speculate by buying and selling oil and gasoline barrels – which are once again represented by actual plastic barrels in their playing area – in both the domestic and foreign markets. However, the changing economic climate, as well as sudden world news events, will challenge players to keep a long-term strategic view of the world energy markets. The first player to reach a corporation value of $750 million is the winner!
Crude: The Oil Game is not only a great simulation of the global oil markets, but with almost 300 plastic playing pieces, it is a sight to behold! Known as McMulti when it was printed in Europe almost 25 years ago, this great game is finally back in print after many years!
