There's a lot of drugs and busted deals in Breaking Bad, and Walter White just happens to be in the middle of it all. If Walt were a real person, I'm willing to bet that his favorite movie is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. You know, that movie where an oddball journalist heads off to Vegas with his crazy lawyer. And yes, there were also a lot of drugs involved in that movie.
For fans of the aforementioned TV show and movie, there's this super-awesome and totally fan-made Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas Board Game. It's basically a suitcase full of household objects that have been made to look like drugs, but hey, if it were real, then it would be illegal.
The man behind the project, Jonathan Baldwin, explains that the game is as real as it gets when it comes to the facts, describing it as "a scientifically-accurate, organic chemistry board game based around Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."
Open up the rad-looking suitcase and you'll find vials upon vials of 'drugs.' There's also game pieces, a whole lot of cards, and a cool-looking board that you're supposed to play the game. The rules are pretty simple and the prize is some pot money that the players contribute at the start of the game.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the game's for sale. You could email Jonathan and beg him to see his version to you, or you could just, you know, make your own.
