In July, Vegas Seven observed what would have been Hunter S. Thompson’s 75th birthday (VegasSeven.com/HSThompson). Also honoring the godfather of Gonzo, designer Jonathan Baldwin created a ”scientifically accurate, organic chemistry board game” based on Thompson’s seminal book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The game, which is not for sale and was displayed at the University of Southern California’s Fisher Gallery, consists of a suitcase filled with vials of “drugs” and color-coded cards that dictate the action. Land on yellow, do some drugs. Land on blue, go on an adventure. Land on red, perform an ordinary household task under the influence. Sure beats the hell out of Monopoly!
