In the King Oil Game you buy oil fields and drill for oil.
The more oil wells that your drill that produce oil, the more money you make. When you force all the other players to go broke, YOU WIN!
You actually drill for oil with the aid of rotating disks inside with holes in them. There are three disks and that determines the depth at which the oil holes have to go to hit oil.
After the board it set up you buy property and drill for oil. The more property you buy the more you can drill on. So you what happens when you find oil? Depending on how deep you go to find it you get paid! The deeper you had to go the more it cost!. Don't want to drill anymore right now? Run some pipe over to your neighbors well and steal a little of his! All perfectly acceptable in "King Oil" by Milton Bradley. This is a great game and very much in demand right now.
