Peak Oil (Fr)
Let us know the best price you found
You are the director of one of the major oil companies, and must lead your company in an oil-free future. Peak oil is looming: you are trying to collect the last drops of black gold all around the world to gather the resources necessary for investment in new technologies.
If you try to emerge victorious from this crisis by normal means, your competitors will use other means, forcing you to get your hands dirty, too.
During your turn, you will assign your agents to different actions on the board. If your agents are in the majority of any action location, or you decide to send mercenaries to their rescue, they crush the competition and allow you to perform this action. You can develop and harvest oil fields, invest in oil-replacing technologies, sponsor press campaigns, become pirates, and manipulate public opinion and oil prices.
After a while, the oil, represented by barrels that you draw from a bag when you develop new oil fields, will run out. It is the peak oil, but also the end of the game. The players add up the technologies in which they have invested and which they have promoted.
Whoever has participated best in creating the future (and therefore acquired the best reputation for his business) wins the game.
