Beat the Border: The Game of Narcotics Traffic

Phoenix, AZ: Border House, 1972. Second Edition, with the pictorial marijuana leaf design box top. Complete, with playing pieces, fake money, cards, and scoring pad in the original, unopened plastic bag. Rare, with no copies in OCLC.

A Monopoly-esque game where players compete to smuggle kilos of marijuana across the Mexican border to sell in American cities like New York, San Francisco, and Muskogee, while avoiding the cops and other pitfalls. An interesting, humorous record of early 1970s drug culture, including a chart listing both the wholesale and retail prices for a kilo.

Game board and pieces Near Fine or better and unused. Box Very Good plus, with splitting to the corners of the top lid.
