Emailed to Las Vegas: Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas Board Game Masterfully cobbled together from materials found at hardware/thrift/"shady medical supply" stores and packaged in a small suitcase, this one-of-a-kind board game includes Petri dishes, shot glasses, lighters, and sugar cubes for Absinthe, plus substances labeled stimulants, depressants, Tryptamines, Phenethylamines, inhalants, and hallucinogens (really, it's all nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol). Roll the dice, then select either a yellow "dosing card" (which drug, how much), a blue "activity card" (speak only with a kazoo 'til it's your turn again), or a red "challenge card" (wear blindfold for 30mins, let others lead you around), the latter two specifically designed to be difficult to accomplish while under the influence, though if you're truly bent, isn't the blindfold a little redundant? Follow the rabbit hole to here
